Flashback: Glenn Frey Makes Acting Debut on 'Miami Vice'

19 January 2016 7:50 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Miami Vice had only been on the air for a few months when show creator Michael Mann heard Glenn Frey's song "Smuggler's Blues" on the radio. The tune, like the show, dealt with the seedy world of drug smuggling in Florida; Mann quickly commissioned an episode with the same title. Writer Miguel Piñero worked lines from the song straight into the dialogue, and Frey himself was cast as Jimmy Cole, a pilot who helps Crockett and Tubbs track their man into Colombia.

Frey never appeared on the program again, »

Glenn Frey, Legendary Eagles Founder and Miami Vice Muse, Dead at 67

18 January 2016 3:46 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Eagles co-founder and guitarist Glenn Frey, a six-time Grammy winner whose hits included “Hotel California” and “The Heat Is On,” died Monday of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia. He was 67.

Frey’s 1984 hit single “Smuggler’s Blues” inspired a Season 1 episode of Miami Vice, and even featured a guest appearance by the musician (he played a pilot; see photo, above). It marked his acting debut.

Frey would go on to appear in episodes of Wiseguy, Nash Bridges and Arli$$.

“Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, »
