Chubby Checker (b. Ernest Evans, Oct. 3, 1941, Spring Gulley, South Carolina), signed under his real name to Cameo/Parkway Records in Philadelphia, PA. Cameo changes his name after Bobbie Clark notes his ressemblance to a teenage Fats Domino (Fats = Chubby; Domino = Checker).
April 1969 : signed to BUDDAH RECORDS, Checker makes a minor US chart comeback with a cover of The Beatles' White Album track Back In The U.S.S.R. which peaks at #82.
