Eddie Hansen  —  

Over time, Eddie appeared in various groups, including Revival, Ticket, Challenge, Band of Light, Living Force and Beaver.  He 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.  He and drummer Ricky Ball subsequently formed a group, and this 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 Beaver with Paul Woolright and Ricky Ball (both former Ticket members).
