King of Twist pays tribute to the King of Rock and Roll
"I was 16 years old, when I first met Dick,' Chubby Checker said on Wednesday, shortly after he found out that his friend of over 50 years had died. "It was about two years before we did 'The Twist." I was in the studio with him. He was doing a Christmas project, and I was at the piano doing a Fats Domino impression. I was Ernest" - Ernest Evans, his real name - "but I was also called Chubby at the time. And Dick's wife came up with my name. Chubby became Chubby Checker."
Last Man Standing – Chubby Checker does 'The Twist' at the La Mirada Theatre
By Lydia E. Ringwald
Icon of an era, the original Chubby Checker, performed live at La Mirada Theatre March 17 rejuvenating fans with the energy of hit tunes that rocked America in the 1960's and have become an indelible part of the American experience.
After icons the magnitude of Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and John Lennon have left the stage Chubby Checker remains the last man standing, as a solo artist who preformed for two hours and then personally signed autographs and shook hands with the audience for another two hours in the theater lobby after the show.
This is THE Legendary Chubby Checker, the original artist who introduced 'The Twist' in 1960 when he was only 19 and who rocketed to fame as his signature song hit the top of the Billboard 100 twice.
Chubby enjoys the summer sunset of his golden career entertaining audiences worldwide in charismatic performances that have now also become very human and real.
True to the legend, Chubby Checker in the intimate show at La Mirada Theatre, invited audiences onto the stage to 'Twist.'
First, a line e of ladies, with Chubby honoring each with a chance to dance with him for a few moments; then the gentlemen, a hilarious line up from 9 to 90.
The young and the physically fit swivel down low then merge again to standing level lifted by the fabulous beat of the band and Chubby's charismatic voice. Moving up in age, each man expressed his dance version of 'The Twist' up to the 90-year-old man, who with shoulders bent could still swivel the hips and legs victoriously to the applause of cheering crowds. These are the audiences that lived through the heyday of the 1960's, and who are still proudly dancing.
Chubby's rejuvenated dancing audience is a reminder of yet another unusual distinction that makes him unique. With his evocative version of 'Limbo Rock,' which in 1962 reached #2 of Top Ten Hits, Chubby again bridged the gap between dance and exercise as he had with the Twist.
In 'Limbo Rock' catchy nursery rhyme lyrics 'Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack Jump Over Candle Stick' were incorporated into a song with exotic Caribbean beat that had many sliding in miraculously under the lowering limbo stick to Chubby's tempting, 'How low can you go.'
Chubby Checker's multi-dimensional musical career spans over all ages; kids to seniors, with a message and sound that resonates 'true' through multi-various ethnic and social groups throughout the world.
At age 71, the slimmed down, manly and muscular, jeans, jacket and checkered- shoes, Chubby is on a tour to 'Twist Again' for audiences worldwide. If you missed him at
La Mirada, you can catch him in Stuttgart, Germany March 23-24, or in Victorville, CA on October 3 (his birthday). Even better, why not join Chubby on a Royal Caribbean cruise to Australia on Rhapsody of the Seas October 14-23.

When Chubby Checker, as Ernest became, sang 'The Twist' on Clark's popular show, 'The American Bandstand', this new craze overtook the network. Even though the song, a basic, twelve-bar blues, had been written and previously recorded by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters in 1959, this fresh, cover version, featuring Checker's deep, silky voice and pronounced dance moves, made Chubby Checker an instant star. It became the only single to top the Billboard Hot 100 twice. Checker, however, has been quoted as saying, "The Twist really ruined my life."

Naples resident believes legendary musician Chubby Checker should be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
By Barry M. Klein
Let me get right to the point: Chubby Checker deserves to be
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I won't tell you my theories about why this has not yet
occurred; I will begin by telling you why this has been long
Chubby Checker, born Ernest Evans on Oct. 3, 1941, had 21 Top 40
Billboard hits from 1960 through 1965. Although he did not write
"The Twist" (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Hank Ballard
wrote it), his version of the song was not only the No. 1 song for
15 weeks in 1960, over a year later it was again the No. 1 song. Has
any other rock 'n' roll artist ever done this? No!
Was Chubby Checker a one hit wonder? No! He continued to
roll out Top 40 hits, and at least 13 of them were dance-themed
titles. Chubby Checker is the undisputed "Dance King" rock 'n' roll
singer of all time. Another dance hit of his, "Pony Time," also hit
No. 1 on the Billboard charts. He was a Grammy winner in 1961
and had a best "Rock and Roll Sole Performance" with "Let's
