For nearly three decades, world-renowned guitarist Randy Hansen has acquired quite a reputation as being one of the best Hendrix impersonators on the Third Stone from the Sun.

In a sea of Hendrix-inspired guitarists, Randy Hansen stands tall and is one of the few players officially recognized by the Hendrix family.
From the first Lost 80s Live concert that we shared performances to last year’s 80s Cruise and The Sands experiences in Cancun, Jade has shown resilience, poise and stunning professionalism. While some might consider her to represent the 80s in her music, I see her crossing over into widespread dance markets worldwide. Jade joins All Access Live to introduce and discuss her dance single cover of Seal’s iconic hit “Crazy”.
One of my ALL TIME favorite singers, Johnny Gioeli’s voice grabbed me the first time I heard Hardline’s Double Eclipse record. Already a fan of Neal Schon, pals Deen Castronovo and Todd Jensen, the gritty rasp and soaring melodies Johnny pulled out on that record cemented the album in my all-time top 10 collection. Start to finish, the record is seamless and full of hits. Finding out later on about Johnny’s extensive career with so many other artists, as well as his contributions to Sega’s video game empire, and eventually learning of his humility and candor, I knew that a conversation on All Access Live was in order.

A grinning gem of a human, Brian and I recorded and performed together twenty five years ago. As I transitioned out of a difficult band departure, Brian swept me up and brought me into the recording studio to work on one of the most unique projects I had the privilege to track.
