CHUBBY CHECKER
Born: October 3, 1941 in Spring Gulley, South Carolina
Biography | show moreshow less
CHUBBY CHECKER's recording of "The Twist" entered the charts in August 1960 and hit number one seven weeks later. The Twist dance craze continued for the next 18 months, and it eventually became popular with the adult crowd. This resurgence prompted Cameo/Parkway Records to re-release the single in 1962. It climbed to number one once again. Checker is the only artist of the Rock and Roll era to have the same single enter the charts twice and go all the way to the top. Born Ernest Evans, he was given his name by Dick Clark's wife who said he reminded her of Fats Domino.
