Yesterday, I posted a piece about the death of Marvin Isely, the Bass Player of the Isely Brothers and I mentioned Ernie Isely. I found this video of Ernie from the late 80's playing with his own band performing the Isely hit, Who's That Lady.
Ernie was a young kid when Jimi Hendrix was playing in his brothers band, but he was forever influenced and created his own sonic signature and style which still resonates today. Ernie was probably the only R&B rock cross over artist who ever referenced Emily Dickinson. another reason why the Isely musical influence will live on long beyond the short attention span of our cultural pop conciousness.
