"Deacon Frey has devoted the past four and a half years to carrying on his father's legacy and, after some weeks of reflection, he now feels that it is time for him to forge his own path," the statement began. "We understand, completely, and we support him in whatever he wishes to pursue in the years ahead."

One month after his passing, the band led an emotional tribute for Glenn at the Grammy Awards ceremony and performed the band's first single "Take It Easy." They were joined by singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, who co-wrote the 1972 hit with Glenn.

Earlier this year, the band — which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 — went on tour, though Deacon was not a part of it due to an illness at the time, according to Variety.

Deacon's absence was later explained in a social media that read, "Deacon's bandmates will take over his tour duties in his absence. Deacon rejoining the band for performances will be based on his recovery and doctor's recommendations."

The band is still scheduled to go on tour this month, beginning in Columbus, Ohio, and will hit multiple cities across the United States before concluding in London in June.
