It takes a real soldier to stay in the music industry and live off the things that have been put before me and be able to survive all this time because it has not been easy.
Do you realize that I have had five albums in the Top 30. Elvis and The Beatles have never done that. I had five singles in the Top 5, I mean, no one's ever done that.
I'm just grateful to be on this planet. I have no enemies that I know of. I'm just the guy who makes happy.
My outlet is my music, and it's been this way since I was 4 years old.
God's got something for me. I have faith it'll be OK.
Chubby Checker changed the dance floor.
Of all the '60s - there was Elvis, there was the Beatles, there was the British invasion, Jimmy Hendrix, and Woodstock - the No. 1 record was 'The Twist.'
People don't do the Macarena together. Or if they do, they do it to get closer, to get together. It's the same thing with the Electric Slide.
You have to be very strong to play my music. The drummer has to be in great shape. Same with the guitarist. You have to be a monster to play with Chubby!
I compare the Twist to the electric light, The Twist is me, and I'm it. I'm the electric light.
