RIP Suze Rotolo

Suze Rotolo died.  If the name doesn’t strike a chord, she’s the attractive young lady that Bob Dylan dated in the early sixties; she also graced the cover of “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan”.  Their break-up was not a good one for Bobby, though it did inspire “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright” and “Boots of Spanish Leather”, inter alia.  As usual, great art born of heartache.  Personally, I’d like to thank her for inspiring so many songs that mean so much to me.  My favorite?  Why, “Suze (The Cough Song)” of course!
