Last week I was honored to have a long time friend over – Richard Page needed guitar overdubs for some new songs.
These days Richard Page writes a lot, and also tours with Ringo Starr every year.

Long ago when Steve Farris left Mr. Mister, I auditioned for the band and almost got the job 🙂 I was very disappointed at the time, and Buzz Feiten got the gig. A few weeks later, I joined Patrick Leonard‘s band Toy Matinee. The Toy Matinee record ended up being one of the best projects I’ve ever done. In another twist of fate, Richard Page replaced Kevin Gilbert as Pat’s partner on the second Toy Matinee record – that band was called Third Matinee. Once again I almost made the cut – I think I ended up on one song but another good friend and fine guitarist James Harrah was chosen instead – he played beautifully and did most of the record. Richard has always been one of my lifetime favorite singers and songwriters. Richard told me that his gig with Ringo is incredibly fun. The band right now is Gregg Bissonette, Steve Lukather, Greg Rolie and Richard Page – They tour every summer. I was a fan of Richard’s first band called Pages and have worked with them sporadically on recording projects over the years. Most people know him from the huge hit he had ‘Broken Wings’.
