A strong vocalist and excellent songwriter, Isaiah « Doctor » Ross (not ER or Friends please) gained early experience playing Delta jukes and eventually landed radio shows in Clarksdale and Memphis, where he also recorded for Sam Phillips's Sun label. At the peak of Ross's career, he quit Sun, concerned that his royalties were being used to promote Elvis Presley's recordings. Ross died May 28, 1993.
