Chubby Checker said : “The music industry is a strange business. There’s a lot of politics in the music industry. And you just have to roll with what’s there, that’s all.

But there’s a lot of tears at the same time. Because we’re having all of these highs and then there’s so many lows that I have no control over,” External link
