1972 to 1998
Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
NZ/Australian rock group from 1973 to 2011
There are multiple artists with this name: 1) Dragon formed in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1972, with a line-up that featured Todd Hunter, guitarist Ray Goodwin, drummer Neil Reynolds and singer Graeme Collins; by 1974 several personnel changes had occurred including the introduction of Todd's brother Marc Hunter on vocals and Neil Storey on drums. The band recorded two progressive rock albums in New Zealand, Universal Radio and Scented Gardens for the Blind, the second with an added guitar element from Robert Taylor. Paul Hewson also joined the band on keyboards and from this point Dragon's music took on a pop-flavoured AOR feel.
