 The411:  One of the brothers of the soulful R & B group The Isley Brothers has died.  Marvin Isley, the brother who played the bass player has died in a Chicago hospital at the age of 56. He actually died Sunday morning but the family did not release the information until tonight.  The cause of his death is not known at this time.  Marvin stopped performing in 1996 after having health problems due to diabetes which caused him to have a stroke, high blood pressure and some paralysis in his hands and legs. 
Marvin along with his brothers were inducted into the Rock and roll Hall of Fame in 1992.  The group's hits included "Twist and Shout," later recorded by The Beatles, "Love The One You're With," and the Grammy-winning 1969 smash, "It's Your Thing."
