Glenn's death aged 67 on 18 January (16) prompted fans of the Hotel California musician to campaign for the city to consider proposals to honour its famous son.

On Thursday (11Feb16), officials at the Royal Oak School Board, where Glenn was once a pupil, unanimously voted to change the name of a stretch of road which runs parallel to the school to 'Glenn Frey Drive'.

The new signs honouring the rock legend will be installed during a ceremony on 18 February (16), with Royal Oak Mayor Jim Ellison telling the Detroit Free Press, "I don't think we can come up with a better tribute to one of our most famous residents."

After beginning his music career in nearby Detroit, Michigan, Glenn moved to California and teamed up with fellow musician Don Henley to form the Eagles.

The band enjoyed a run of chart success throughout the 1970s, with hits such as Take It To The Limit, Tequila Sunrise, and Desperado.
