Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Come on, baby, let's do the twist

Chubby Checker is one of my favorite vocalist. I remember watching him on television, listening to him on the radio, and playing at least one of his records. However, my favorite memory is going to the Showboat, with my mother, and seeing him in person. I'm not sure of the date, I know it was sometime in the late 1990s when my mother was still working at the Showboat.

The Showboat had a couple of--what I would call--small lounge rooms on the first floor. They hired singer, who were famous with the Baby Boomer generation. The only thing required of the audience was the purchase of a drink of some type. Mom and I went, we ordered either coffee or hot tea, and set at a table listening to Chubby Checker sing. The songs I remember him singing was The Twist and Let's Twist Again.

Mom was in her late 60s or early 70s at the time. She was still working, she work up until the eventually closed that casino-hotel. Anyway Mom enjoyed listening to Chubby Checker as much as I did. Which is one of the reasons I don't buy into the generation labels. I think the generation labels are false and don't apply to real world interactions.
