Happy Birthday to Richard Page – born May 16, 1953

Richard Page (born May 16, 1953) is an American musician who is best known as being the lead singer and bassist of 1980s band Mr. Mister and is now a songwriter and solo artist.

Early life

Page was born May 16, 1953 in Keokuk, Iowa. His parents, Robert and Joyce Page, were both professional musicians – he a singer and choral director, she an accomplished organist, pianist, and singer. The family of seven (Page has a sister and three brothers, who are all musicians) landed in Montgomery, Alabama in the mid-1950s where his parents worked as music directors at a local Methodist church. His mother knew Richard had a special interest in the family “business” when he came home from Sunday school to announce that he was the only baritone in the four-year-old class.

In the late 1960s, the family moved to Phoenix, Arizona where Page attended Central High School, performing in school musicals such as Oliver!
