Can somebody tell me what the Hell an ONEY is?
This week, we are getting wild and crazy with Chuck Oney, the namesake behind Columbus rock band ONEY.
That’s right! It’s time to celebrate Hair Metal Monday! So dig out your concert t-shirts, parachute pants and colorful scarves and prepare to bang your head to the beat…
Last year, Demon Doll Records Group released The Legacy by ONEY. It’s a collection of 16 songs from the band’s initial EP Good Guys Wear Black (1989) and their debut full-length album Bust ‘Em Down (recorded in 1991-92, released 2006), and also includes two additional unreleased tracks.
Chuck dishes on the crazy times of the hair metal/glam metal scene in the 1980s and early 1990s, deciding not to move to Los Angeles, and how they paid for the recording of their first album. He talks about the resurgence of the band, how they ended up recording the song Crazy (A Suitable Case For Treatment) by Nazareth, and so much more!
