the Onion Rings (Blue Onions)

Cleveland, 1967-?

When Dale Davis started the Blue Onion label, it was only natural that they would release a record by a band with Onion in their name.

The Onion Rings on record were Dale Davis on vocals and some members of a local band called the Pilgrims (no connection to the Glenn Schwartz/Dennis Chandler band). They recorded two of Dale's songs at Cleveland Recording. The combination at the studio never played out, but a band called the Blue Onions, using a couple of the studio musicians, did play some live dates after. We're not sure if they stunk, or had a peel.

One of the Blue Onions, Paul Misley, commited suicide.
