A Girl Inspiring Bob Dylan's Songs Passed Away


Suze Rotolo, who dated the musician during the time he wrote his iconic tracks, died at 67 following a long battle with ill health.

Bob Dylan's former girlfriend Suze Rotolo, who inspired several of his iconic tracks, has died aged 67. The artist passed away in her New York apartment on Thursday, February 24 following a long battle with ill health.

Rotolo met Dylan when she was just 17 in 1961 and they dated for three years, in which time the folk legend penned "Don't Think Twice", "It's All Right", "Boots of Spanish Leather", and "Tomorrow Is a Long Time" with her in mind. She also famously appeared arm-in-arm with the musician on the iconic cover of his 1963 album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan".

After the pair split, Rotolo went on to become an artist and teacher and penned a memoir about her time mixing in folk and art circles in New York's trendy Greenwich Village in the 1960s. She married Italian film editor Enzo Bartoccioli and the pair has one son, guitarist Luca.
