RIP Tommy Page

I was sorry  to learn of the suicide of Tommy Page, who at the tail end of the 1980s emerged briefly as a teen idol, before coming out as a gay man and forging a successful career behind-the-scenes in the music industry. He was only 46 years old. Sad.

Tommy's biggest hit was the NKOTB-adjacent I'll Be Your Everything, which was a #1 single in 1990.  New Kid mania was at it's peak at that time, and there may have been a perception that it was as much a hit for New Kids (Jordan Knight's voice features prominently on the track) as it was for Tommy.  He had a few other minor hits, and was pretty much done as a pop.  He seems to be best known now for an appearance he made as himself on an episode of Full House.
