Richard Page (b. 1953) - Mr. Mister

Richard Page (b. May 16, 1953, Keokuk, Iowa), is the lead singer and bassist in 1980's US band Mr. Mister, and is also now a songwriter and solo artist.


Mr. Mister is an American pop rock band of the 1980's. The band's name came from an inside joke about a Weather Report record called Mr. Gone where they referred to each other as "Mister This" or "Mister That," and eventually selected "Mr. Mister."

Mr. Mister may be considered as representative of the melodic sound of 1980's pop rock.

The band consisted of Richard Page on vocals and bass guitar, Steve George on keyboards, Pat Mastelotto on acoustic and electronic drums and Steve Farris on guitars.


Kyrie was a #1 hit song by the 1980's pop/rock band Mr. Mister, from their 1985 album Welcome to the Real World. Released in late 1985, it hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in March 1986, where it was #1 for two weeks. It also hit the top spot on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart for one week, and was the band's only #1 single on this chart. In the UK the song peaked at #11 in April 1986.
