Browne first reached a wide swath of listeners with his self-titled 1972 debut album, which included “Doctor My Eyes,” a single that reached No. 11 on the Billboard Singles chart. That year, Browne co-wrote “Take It Easy” with Glenn Frey of the Eagles; the song became a hit for The Eagles with Frey as vocalist, and was featured by Browne on his second album.
His highest ranking single was 1982’s “Somebody’s Baby,” part of the “Fast times at Ridgemont High” soundtrack — it went to No. 7 on the singles chart.
In 2005, Browne appeared on stage with Jack Johnson at the Kokua Festival, singing “Take it Easy” and “Island Style”; the songs are included included on 2012 album “Best of Kokua Festival.”
Browne was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2007. His most recent studio album is 2014’s “Standing In The Breach.”
