BHR Hollywood Reports.......Nicholas Caldwell, a founding member of "The Whispers" whose hits included "Rock Steady" has died, he was 71 years old.

The Whispers 
We're told Nicholas has had heart problems in the past and had a pacemaker inserted about a year ago but it's unclear at this point exactly what led to his death.

Caldwell had also taken a break from the group over the last year to get better in hopes of returning to the stage with the group's other three members.

The Whispers 
The Whispers started in 1963 and the group's other hits included "And The Beat Goes On" and "It Just Gets Better With Time."

Formed in the San Francisco Bay area in 1963, Caldwell was an original member of the group that included twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott, Marcus Hutson and Gordy Harmon.

Their first top 10 R&B hit was in 1970 with “Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong.”

 Their first album to go platinum was “The Whispers” in 1980. It included the disco hit, “And The Beat Goes On.”
