Billy Name—as William Linich, Jr. rechristened himself—was the man who gave Andy Warhol's Factory its silvered surfaces, one of the most iconic, best-remembered aspects of the life of pop artist whose life was filled with many memorable details.
Name died Monday in New York of congestive heart failure. He was 76.
Along with painting the Factory (even the silverware!) silver, Name was a longtime protégé of Warhol's, his lover and a photographer of some acclaim.
Last year, while in the hospital, Name told the Guardian:
I didn’t consider myself a photographer until much later, when people started appreciating the work. I wasn’t influenced by any other photographer and I hadn’t looked at any books or shows. I just took the camera when Andy handed it to me and said, “Here, Billy, you do the stills photography.” I remember I went to the store the next day and bought the manual for the camera. That’s how it began.
Name vouched for the fact that Warhol really was genuine in his behavior, in his persona. As for Name's, he told the same interviewer of the heady days of the '60s:
I miss the times when I was really free.

"Trump: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should step down ASAP" pic.twitter.com/TwUTaSJ2OW— DCHomos (@DCHomos) July 12, 2016
Trump steamed that Justice Ginsburg is openly biased against him. Sounds like she's going to step down anyway, and wants to state the obvious.
Trump asserts that in the same way black people can't get a fair shake, the U.S. system is rigged against his rich, white ass, too.
