Suze Rotolo, RIP

Suze Rotolo, who walked down a Greenwich Village street with her boyfriend Bob Dylan on the iconic cover of the his 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, has died after a long illness. She was 67. Rotolo inspired much of Freewheelin', which is the best of the Bard's purely-folkie, pre-electric albums. Including the mean but beautiful "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," which, according to biographer Clinton Heylin, Dylan wrote upon learning that Rotolo planned to stay in italy indefinitely studying art, rather than come back to be with Bob. An obituary is here. Rotolo's book A Freewheelin' Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the 1960s, came out in 2008. A New York Times interview with her from then is here.
