Listen to The Twist (Stop Video First)

Born in Philadelphia in 1941, Ernest Evans would later become Chubby Checker and make Rock and Roll history. With the help of Dick Clark and a record deal with Cameo-Parkway, Chubby Checker began his professional career. After recording four songs on Cameo-Parkway that barely dented the top forty, a “twist” of fate had Chubby singing “The Twist” for American Bandstand as a stand-in act for a no-show. “The Twist” hit the pop charts in the summer of 1960 and went to number one.

Following the huge success of “The Twist,” Chubby Checker recorded several other top ten hits including “Pony Time,” “Let’s Twist Again,” and “The Fly.”
