On Thursday night, Tommy Page’s friends and family gathered to share stories about the man they considered an exemplary musician, colleague, and father.
Page, who passed away on March 3 at age 46, had recently joined the Village Voice as vice president of music partnerships, but he had a long career in the music business as a singer, songwriter, and record executive — his 1990 single “I’ll Be Your Everything” was the number one record in America. Page is survived by his partner, Charlie, and their three children.
Warner Brothers, who released “I’ll Be Your Everything,” hosted the memorial.
“He was the nicest person to be around,” said Karen Moss, who was Page’s publicist for his number one hit. “He always had a sense of direction. His career as a musician and behind the scene in the music business was phenomenal.”
Dale Cannone worked at Warner Brothers when Page was an artist and later Page became his colleague. “He always managed to reinvent himself and was never scared to take on new challenges,” Cannone said.
