Suze Rotolo and Bob Dylan

44 minutes

The mysterious woman on the cover of the breakthrough album ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’ was a major influence on the legendary musician’s development, just as he was becoming “Bob Dylan.” He assimilated her art, influences, and politics into his persona and his songs, so many of which were written about or for her. They were intensely in love at a very young age in a time of social upheaval, all in the cauldron of Greenwich Village, and it forged and tested them both in myriad ways.
