Rock and Roll legend Chubby Checker spent the morning with “Fox 8 News in the Morning.”

Fox 8’s Kenny Crumpton joined him at the Hard Rock Rocksino, where he will be performing this weekend to raise money for Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village.

Then, he stopped by Fox 8 News at 9 a.m. to talk about “The Twist,” how he got his name and meeting Fox 8 anchor Stefani Schaefer back in the 80’s.

The King of the Twist did plenty of dancing, too — teaching the morning show gang how to do “The Twist.”
