Chubby Checker was a huge star during the the early 1960s pre-Beatles era. He was the king of the dance songs and would never be able to get away from that type of music. “The Twist” will always be his defining song and was one of the signature songs of its era.
One of his other hit dance songs was released during the late summer of 1961. “The Fly” became a hit during the fall reaching number seven on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Checker is still performing today and yes, still dancing away.
