Chubby Checker

Real Name:
Ernest Evans
Profile:
American rock’n’roll vocalist, best known for popularizing the "Twist" dance craze with his 1960 hit cover version of Hank Ballard’s R&B hit “The Twist”. Born October 3, 1941 in Spring Gulley, South Carolina. Rumor has it that Chubby Checker's name was a record label invention, a twist on the ever popular Fats Domino: Domino vs Checker, both game names, and Fats vs Chubby.

(Note: Many “greatest hits” LPs and CDs released after 1981 do not contain the original Parkway recordings, but newer versions re-recorded probably around 1980, see list.)
