Bob Dylan's Muse Dies

(Gibson) Bob Dylan's early '60s muse, Suze Rotolo, died on February 24 at the age of 67 after a long illness. Rotolo was a passionate civil rights activist, an artist who specialized in artists' books, and a teacher at the Parsons School of Design in New York City.

Rotolo inspired Dylan tracks, including "Boots of Spanish Leather," "Tomorrow is a Long Time" and "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," and also appeared with Dylan on the cover of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

Dylan and Rotolo began dating in 1961 in New York when she was 17. Dylan described their first meeting in his 2004 memoir, Chronicles: Volume One: "She was fair skinned and golden haired, full-blooded Italian. The air was suddenly filled with banana leaves. We started talking and my head started to spin. Cupid's arrow had whistled past my ears before, but this time it hit me in the heart and the weight of it dragged me overboard." more on this story
