The Isley Brothers have been making records for 63 years. In 1959, the Cincinnati family band released their first single, the wedding staple “Shout.” (They’d already been performing together for years before then.) These days, the Isley Brothers are down to 79-year-old founding member Ronald Isley and to guitarist Ernest, who didn’t officially join his brothers until 1973 but who played the liquid guitar lines of their ’70s classics. The Isley’s longevity is a baffling thing; they were still making hits into the ’00s, and today, they’ve got a lush and irresistible new song with Snoop Dogg.
