Who is Deacon Frey?
Deacon was born in 1993 in the USA – he hasn’t shared his exact date of birth with the public, but his zodiac sign is believed to be Sagittarius, and he holds American nationality. He’s a musician, while he’s probably known best for being the son of the late American singer-songwriter and actor Glenn Lewis Frey, who was a founding member of the rock ‘n’ roll band The Eagles.
Early life and education
Deacon was raised alongside his older sister Taylor, born in 1991, and younger brother Otis, born in 2002, by their father and their mother Cindy Millican, an American choreographer and dancer. Their parents married in 1990, while their father had previously been married to American artist Janie Beggs, between 1983 and 1988.
Deacon became interested in music at a very early age, wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps, and was around six years old when he began playing the guitar on a daily basis. He was interested in a couple of other activities, and played soccer when attending a local high school, while he was also into acting, appearing in various school plays.
Deacon matriculated in 2011, and because he hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s believed that he hasn’t attended college.
Deacon began playing the guitar in a couple of bands upon matriculating, and it was revealed in 2017 that he had signed a contract with The Eagles; there were rumors circulating the internet at that time, claiming that The Eagles would be disbanding because of Deacon’s father’s death, but all this changed when Deacon was accepted as their new member.
They went on to recruit Vince Gill, while Deacon’s first tour with The Eagles began on 23 June 2019, when they performed at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
They went on to record the new version of their 1972 single “Take It Easy”, with Deacon as the lead vocalist.
He’s today mostly focused on singing and playing the guitar for the Eagles, and doesn’t seem to be involved in any other projects.
Love life and girlfriend
Deacon hasn’t spoken of any girls or boys whom he has perhaps been with, and this is mostly why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his sexual orientation and current relationship status.
Some of his fans believe him to be gay, and this to be the reason behind him not speaking of the girls whom he has maybe dated; a fan has even claimed to have seen Deacon kissing his boyfriend at a party, however, no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Deacon addressed these rumors.
There are also those who believe that he’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity British girl, whom he met while touring around England with The Eagles, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of April 2022, Deacon seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Deacon seems to be enjoying the attention which he’s receiving from his more than 10,000 followers on Instagram – he’s uploaded nearly 50 pictures onto the network, only a couple of which feature him during his everyday life.
He’s a huge lover of animals, with dogs being his favorites; his pet dog can be seen featured in a couple of his Instagram pictures.
Deacon is quite sporting and enjoying playing soccer and basketball with his friends, while he also has a couple of training sessions at the gym every week.
He’s into travelling, and has already been to various European countries and US states, mostly thanks to becoming a new member of The Eagles.
Deacon’s a fan of Hollywood movies, and his favorite actor and actress are Al Pacino and Angelina Jolie, while a couple of his favorite films include “Scent of a Woman”, the trilogy “The Godfather” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life”.

Who was his father, Glenn Frey?
Glenn Lewis Frey was born in Detroit, Michigan USA on 6 November 1948 – his zodiac sign was Scorpio, and he held American nationality. Besides having been a member of The Eagles, Glenn was also a solo performer; his debut album “No Fun Aloud” came out in 1982, and he then went on to release many hit singles, including “The Heat Is On”, “Sexy Girl” and “The One You Love”.
Glenn was raised in Royal Oak, Michigan alongside his brothers Matthew and Allen, by their father Edward and mother Nellie.

Upon matriculating in 1966, Glenn became a member of The Four of Us, and also enrolled at Oakland Community College. He went on to sign a contract with Amos Records, and in 1970 met drummer Don Henley, who was signed to the same record label; they then met the American musicians Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon, and the four went on to found The Eagles and become one of the most popular bands of all time.
They became famous in the ‘70s, but then split in 1980; The Eagles reunited in 1994 and released their album “Hell Freezes Over”, while they then embarked on a couple of tours. Their second album following their reunion was released in 2007, entitled “Long Road Out of Eden”.
After they disbanded in 1980, Glenn began working on his solo career, and his single “The Heat Is On” became popular worldwide; it was also used as the main theme song in the 1984 action comedy movie “Beverly Hills Cop”, which starred Eddie Murphy. He released his second album – “After Hours” – on 8 May 2012.
Glenn was also a bit of an actor, having appeared in the 1984 episode “Smuggler’s Blues” of the crime series “Miami Vice”, while he also starred in the crime series “South of Sunset”. His first movie role was in the 1986 action drama “Let’s Get Harry”, in which he starred alongside Michael Schoeffling and Thomas F. Wilson, while he then played a supporting character in the 1996 critically acclaimed romantic comedy movie “Jerry Maguire”.
Glenn began struggling with rheumatoid arthritis in 2000, and the medication used for treating it led to pneumonia and colitis; in 2015, the doctors at Columbia University Medical Center placed Glenn in a medically induced coma, but he passed away on 18 January 2016, aged 67.
