RIP Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's Ex-Girlfriend and '60s Muse
According to the magazine, Rotolo inspired many of Dylan's early love songs, including "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," "Boots of Spanish Leather" and "Tomorrow Is a Long Time." They started dating in 1961 when Rotolo was 17.
Rotolo, who came from a left-wing family, played a huge role in Dylan's political awakening, taught him a lot about the civil-rights movement, and inspired him to write and perform music beyond old classic folk songs.
The couple broke up in 1963.
