The Isley Brothers Arrive On The St. Louis Walk Of Fame

Soul music fans who turned on the radio in the 1960s and 70s were bound to hear a song from the influential group, The Isley Brothers. The world renowned band has released both ballads and funk anthems that have now shaped generations of music.

On Wednesday, Ronald and Ernie Isley joined the likes of Maya Angelou, Stan Musial, Nelly and other St. Louis celebrities with their addition to the St. Louis Walk of Fame. The brothers were honored at a ceremony outside of The Pageant.

Im glad to be amongst some of the great people: Tina Turner, Miles Davis, Chuck Berry. You know, its wonderful, Ronald Isley said.

Both brothers moved to St. Louis in 1998, though the two originally hail from Cincinnati, Ohio. Ronald Isley said they go to church in the St. Louis area. He also said his son attends school in St. Louis.

1. Good for them. Their deceased brothers are looking down at them with pride.

Where was their cousin, the bass player?
