Musician Marvin Isley Passes Away

Good morning guys...sad news for the morning, I'm afraid. We are losing a lot of great celebrities...

Marvin Isley, famous for playing the bass with his brothers, R&B group the Isley Brothers, passed away this past Sunday at the age of 56 in Chicago, according to the Associated Press. Mr. Isley stopped performing in 1996 because of complications from diabetes. He had by then also suffered a stroke, had a kidney transplant, lost both his legs, and the use of his left hand.

Weiss Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Catherine Gianaro says Mr. Isley passed away Sunday morning. She could not confirm a cause of death.

The Isley Brothers have been around for over five decades, and are widely known for their hit songs such as "Shout," "Fight the Power" and the Grammy-winning 1969 smash hit, "It's Your Thing." The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.

RIP Mr. Isley. Keeping your loved ones in my thoughts and prayers.
