Mr. Mister was an / band known for their hits such as “Broken Wings”.

Richard Page had formerly worked as a session musician for people such as Quincy Jones and had composed for people such as Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, Kenny Loggins, and many more. In the late , he and his childhood friend Steve George founded the band Pages (most notable for “I Do Believe in You”) in Phoenix, Arizona, from which Mr. Mister sprang out of 1982. The two continued to apply their tight harmonies to background vocals on albums by successful artists like Laura Branigan while working to break their own material.

When the first Mr. Mister album, ‘I Wear The Face’, was released, Page was offered the chance to replace Bobby Kimball as lead singer of Toto, and later was offered Peter Cetera’s place in Chicago; he refused both offers. The second album, Welcome To The Real World, with lyrics from Page’s cousin John Lang, was the breakthrough for Mr. Mister, with three top 10 singles, two of which hit #1 on the U.S. pop charts (most notably Broken Wings). In those days of success, they toured with Tina Turner, for whom the song Stand And Deliver was written. This song eventually appeared on Mr. Mister’s third album, Go On, which the band said was “some of the best stuff we ever did,” showing a much more mature band and a sound that hinted at progressive rock. Nevertheless, Go On was not a commercial success. Guitarist Steve Farris left around 1989. The band began working on a fourth album, Pull, with session guitarists, but were dropped by their label before it could be released, and the band decided to break up.
