What’s In-Store Music shares our sorrow on the passing of Tommy Page. WISM’s Bob Catania knew Tommy well and shared this memory.
The first time I spoke with Tommy he was working as an assistant at Reprise. I was a bit stunned as I knew he had a successful career as a singer and figured he'd start way up the food chain. Nope...he told me he was going to become an executive and he needed to start as an assistant so he could learn how it worked from the ground up...and so he could learn from all the executives he worked with. After that conversation I knew this was someone destined for greatness. He sure made good on the greatness part!! Still struggling with this but so glad Tommy came into my orbit and I had a chance to know this remarkable man. My love and thoughts to his family and friends. It’s a sad day for the music industry and everyone who loved him.
