R.I.P. Bob Dylan's Muse

They say you never forget your first love, so it's gotta be a sad time around Bob Dylan's house... The woman he once described as his muse, Suze Rotolo, has passed away at 67. She's the one arm in arm with Bob on the cover of his breakthrough record, 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.'

Rotolo inspired such songs as 'Don't Think Twice, It's All Right,' 'Boots of Spanish Leather' and 'Tomorrow Is a Long Time.' Apparently, they met after one of his concerts in '61, and were pretty much inseparable for 3 years after that.

Rotolo went on to become a noted artist and activist in her own right. In 2008, she published her memoir of the 1960's Greenwich Village scene called 'A Freewheelin' Time.'

Good read....
