Singer-songwriter and music industry executive Tommy Page, best known for his No. 1 single “I’ll Be Your Everything," was found dead Friday (March 3). The cause of death was unclear at press time, but according to reports from several friends, it was an apparent suicide. He was 46.
Page started his career as a recording artist for Sire Records -- as he told it, he was working as a coat-checker at the New York nightclub Nell's and gave his demo to label head Seymour Stein -- and topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his single, "I'll Be Your Everything" in April 1990. The song was written by Page, along with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood of Page's tourmates New Kids on the Block. The group's Donnie Wahlberg, along with Knight, also had a hand in producing the track.
Page later returned to NYU's Stern School of Business to pursue his career as a music executive. He recorded nine studio albums and continued to tour throughout his career.
