With each decade, there've been bands that have fought to keep true rock and roll alive. In the 50's it was artists such as Chuck Berry and Elvis. In the 60's, The Beatles and the Stones, and later bands like U2 and Oasis continued to keep the people rocking. All Access continues down that road it's predecessors laid before them, delivering a sound with high energy and attitude, as well as soft and sweet melody- what Rock and Roll is all about! The band's music has been compared to artists such as Radiohead, The Vines, Foo Fighters, and even Cheap Trick, but they refuse to be thrown into any specific genre. Doug explains, 'We are a Rock band, plain and simple. There are too many categories today that people try to put themselves and others into, even outside of music. We don't mind comparisons, just as long as people don't limit us as artists to those comparisons. We write whatever comes naturally. It may end up sounding like the Stones or U2, but it's all Rock and Roll to us.' Though All Access loves to rock, they are a band with meaning that takes their role in music very seriously. The Greek philosopher Plato once said, 'When modes of music change the fundamental laws of the state change with them', says Doug. 'We believe in that and the fact that Rock and Roll is one of the most powerful forces in the world today. There's a lot of change that needs to take place, and we hope we can be a part of making some of those changes happen.' Playing over 300 shows from coast to coast, All Access is dedicated religiously to touring and stays true to the cause of keeping Rock and Roll alive and well!
