RIP Tommy Page

on March 4, 2017 - 12:00am

While the world is hearing sad news of the sudden passing of Tommy Page this morning, it's important we remember the shining light & beautiful life of our colleague and friend Tommy.

Accomplished as both an artist and executive, his charm and charisma were effortless and effective. His style and grace were always on point. Tommy's spirited passion for music and hit songs could rival any industry giant. And, of course, his signature smile was a lasting trademark of a true pop star we all adored as an artist on stage - and as a peer on our industry's pitch.
