While working at One Stop Auto in Wantaugh, Joe met co-worker/drummer Chuck Scharf. The two plus Chuck's friend, guitarist/vocalist Al DiBisceglie, formed the power-trio Fried Onions. Like in The Elite, Joe was delegated to bass. As in their name, many of their songs had something to do with food...which were really just metaphors for sex.
Fried Onions style was more open than Joe's past bands, with lots of jamming. Joe really just wanted to play 3 minute songs, but the Onions songs grew longer and longer. After a few shows at places like Roxy, City Line Pub and Right Track Inn the band grew apart.
Here's a studio jam from Fried Onions...
