Billboard, citing “reports from several friends,” confirmed the apparent suicide report.
Page was best known for his No. 1 single “I’ll Be Your Everything,” which he co-wrote with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood of New Kids on the Block. The track, which reached No. 1 on the music charts in April 1990, spent 13 weeks in the Top 40.
Page recorded nine studio albums. In 1992, he appeared as himself on an episode of Full House. He was also a music executive for many years.
In 2011, Page joined Billboard as associate publisher. The following year he was promoted to publisher.
“Ever since childhood, I’ve had big aspirations for my music career,” Page said at the time. “In the inscription below my senior picture in my high school yearbook, I actually wrote ‘Billboard charts, here I come!’ — a hopeful pipe dream from an ordinary Jersey kid.”
Page continued to record and perform regularly throughout his life, particularly in Asia.
“We are all mourning the loss of our friend and colleague Tommy Page,” said Billboard Entertainment Group President John Amato. “He was a magnetic soul and a true entertainer. Our thoughts are with his family.”
Page is survived by his partner, Charlie Page, and their three children.
