Eddie Hansen  —  superb lead guitarist in the style of the late Jimi Hendrix
Over time, Eddie has appeared in various groups, including Revival, Ticket, Rock Squad, Challenge, Band of Light, Living Force and The Beaver Band (which had roots in Jimmy + The Jets and Woody)

His career started in a Christchurch group called Revival, which broke up when vocalist Craig Scott went solo in April 1970.  Eddie headed to Auckland to play with Challenge, who were struggling to stay together after a couple of hits, and he and drummer Ricky Ball subsequently formed a group which became Ticket in May 1970.  After various successes and reinventions, Ticket disbanded in 1973.  Eddie persued his Hare Krishna beliefs, and formed a close friendship with Harvey Mann.  He played for a short time in 1974 with Band Of Light, but by 1975 he was together with Harvey Mann in Living Force.  In 1980 Eddie ended up in The Beaver Band with Paul Woolright and Ricky Ball (both former Ticket members)
