If you know Ray at all he is still a 60s kind of guy. At one point when we were trying to find a name for our press one of the top 3 was “Lead Zepplin.” But then everytime anyone tried to look it up you would always get the band. That’s not quite what you are looking for in your press name. Thankfully, Jill came up with Lead Graffiti, a mixture of
Type metal alloy
and Led Zepplin’s album, Physical Graffiti (often claimed as Ray’s favorite album of all time)
Jill really know how to make her man happy.
At Lead Graffiti we’ve been working on some ideas for film projects so Ray has been looking at a lot of movies and YouTube videos trying to gather visual sparks.
Came across this video of Jimmy Page talking about “Stairway to Heaven.” Ray always says he feels like he could levitate when listening to that guitar solo at the end.
Ray needs to put his Jimmy Page sighting in New York in here sometime.
We though we would put this note on the blog to remind us of the center of Ray’s universe and a place to record some fun stories. Below is the video of page explaining the Stairway plan.
Stories that need to be added.
Jimmy Page on the upper east side.
Cypher + Nichols + Design letterhead with paired images of Jill and Ray’s favorites in a variety of categories. Guitar players named Jimmy or Jimi as it would be. Albums. We really loved this letterhead. Websites don’t quite do it for us the same way, although we like ours pretty much.
