Freddy Mercury and Jim Hutton

Jim Hutton, life partner of late singer Freddy Mercury, passed away on New Year's Day.  Hutton, who lived with Mercury for six years prior to his death in 1991, tested positive for HIV in 1990 but didn't tell Mercury about his status until shortly before the singer passed away.

Hutton passed away after a battle with cancer and was buried in Carlow, Ireland, where he built a house with the money Mercury left in his estate.  He was laid to rest on what would have been his 61 birthday.  Hutton is survived by his brothers, sisters, aunts and other relatives.

Billy Name, who lives in a neatly kept apartment in a run-down house near the train station here, has never had to make that case for himself because his photographs have always done it for him. For seven years, beginning in late 1963, when Warhol gave him a 35-millimeter Honeywell Pentax camera, Mr. Name was the resident photographer of the Factory, capturing the perpetual swirl of superstars, celebrities and hangers-on.
