In June of 1959, Chubby recorded "The Twist." Bernie Lowe, president of Cameo Parkway records was not initially impressed with Chubby's recording and felt it may be a "B" side at best. However, Chubby felt "The Twist" was something special and worked hard promoting the record by undertaking non-stop rounds of TV dates, interviews and live performances. Fourteen months later, in the summer of 1960, "The Twist" was a hit.

"The Twist" was not only the #1 song but it introduced the concept of "dancing apart to the beat." Over the next few years, endless songs incorporating "The Twist" into its name sprang up such as "Peppermint Twist," "Twist and Shout" and "Twistin' the Night Away." In addition, each new song brought a new dance involving "dancing apart to the beat" such as "The Jerk," "The Hully Gully," "The Boogaloo" and "The Shake." At the forefront was Chubby with "The Fly," "The Pony" and "The Hucklebuck."

In 2007, Chubby returned to the charts yet again with "Knock Down The Walls," Billboard’s #1 dance track. This song introduced Chubby to a whole new audience with its powerful straight-ahead rock tempo and captured Chubby's continuous musical evolution.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio rewarded Chubby in July of 2008 with a special award presentation. An honored Chubby thrilled a fervent crowd by performing his hits, new and old, to the delight of everyone. A lengthy photo and autograph session followed, which highlighted Chubby's favorite part, getting to interact with people.

What keeps this artist going? According to Chubby, "It's the fans. The energy I get from singing and dancing with all these people over the years is unlike anything else I experience. I never want it to end."
