Andy Warhol by Billy Name

RIP Billy Name

Billy Name (born William Linich Jr), creator and documentarian of Andy Warhol's Silver Factory, has died at the age of 76, from a variety of chronic conditions.

In 1964, Andy Warhol met Billy Name, then a hairstylist, at one of Name's haircutting parties in his Lower East Side apartment, which had been covered in solver foil and silver paint. Warhol invited Name to do the same at the artist's new loft on East 47th Street, which became the original Factory. Name did so, as well as install all the lighting and sound equipment.

Stanley Kubrick on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey
