Marvin Isley has died.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So Marvin Isley died a couple of days ago. And NO ONE on this formerly great site has mentioned this? Curious to see what kind if response, if any, I get to that sentence.

 

RIP Marvin. I know that you will continue to fight the power.

 

Much respect,

JKM

Always sad to hear that people go.

I know he helped bring the sound of the band into a new era.

 

Oddly there is a television ad that has an Isley brother songs that just came on as I was typing this.

Cool! Do you mean for commercial release?

He was still young to die (56 years!), what a loss. Their bass lines were always powerful. RIP.

No. Personal pleasure.

I can't think of a better reason.

 

Sadly, I just read today of the death of another funk/rock great. Gary Shider, guitarist for the legendary P-Funk, died recently of cancer. Like Marvin Isley, he was only in his fifties. As I stare at my own upcoming fiftieth birthday, I'm starting to understand the meaning of the old saying, "Life is short." I've always thought of that as a cliche. These days it seems less of a cliche and more of a grim truth.
