Bob Dylan Muse Dies At Age 67

Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's early girlfriend and the inspiration behind many of his early love songs, has died at the age of 67. Bob and Suze were still teenagers when they started dating in 1961. She was the inspiration behind his song "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Suze was also the girl with Dylan on the cover of his iconic "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan." After meeting her, Dylan described Suze in his book "Chronicles" as "the most erotic thing I'd ever seen". The couple split in 1963 when stories of Dylan's fling with Joan Baez gained momentum. For more than 40 years, Suze did not talk publicly about Dylan until the 2005 Martin Scorsese doco "No Direction Home". After Dylan, Suze met and married film editor Enzo Bartoccioli. They had one son, Luca. In 2009, she told more when she published her memoir "A Freewheelin' Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the Sixties". Suze lived her entire life in The Village. Dylan songs also inspired by Suze include "Boots of Spanish Leather" and "Tomorrow Is A Long Time". Thanks for the report to HollywoodReporter.com.

    To be fair to UG, the title isn't misleading at all if you're actually reading it. However, upon a cursory glance then yes, it does give the wrong impression. Also, UG didn't really name this article. I don't know if many people realize this, but a lot of the articles on here are just copied and pasted from other news sites. So, a lot of the time, the misleading titles aren't their fault. Of course, I suppose they could rename the articles themselves, but I think they're not allowed to do that. That would be like posting someone's short story on the internet and changing the title. It could cause problems.
