Chubby Checker









Chubby Checker, de son vrai nom Ernest Evans, est né le 3 octobre 1941 à Philadelphie. Remarqué par son enployeur où il travaillait en chantant, il est mis en contact avec la maison de disques Cameo-Parkway qui lui fait signer un contrat à long terme. Pendant l'enregistrement de son premier disque "The Class", la femme de Dick Clark lui fit remarquer qu'il ressemblait à Fats Domino en plus jeune et s'appuyant sur cette ressemblance, elle créa son nom de Chubby Checker qui, en anglais a une signification voisine de celle de Fats Domino. Le roi du Twist détient un grand nombre de records, dont celui d'avoir été deux fois numéro 1 au Billboard avec "The Twist", une fois en 1960, et une seconde fois en 1962; cette chanson figura au total 38 semaines au palmarès. Depuis ce temps il n'a pas cessé d'enregistré des chansons à succès comme: The Hucklebuck, Let's Twist Again, Dancin' Party, Limbo Rock et Loddy Lo. Chubby Checker, pendant les années 60, donna plusieurs spectalcles au États-Unis et au Québec dont l'Esquire Show Bar situé au 1224 rue Sanley à Montréal.
