Suze Rotolo and 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'

Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's former girlfriend in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s, who appeared walking arm-in-arm with him on the iconic cover of his album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan," played a role in the young Dylan's evolution as a singer-songwriter.  She was a 17-year-old art- and poetry-loving civil rights activist from Queens when she met the 20-year-old folk singer.  Rotolo later wrote that Dylan "made me think of Harpo Marx, impish and approachable, but there was something about him that broadcast an intensity that was not to be taken lightly." She died at 67. <a href="http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-suze-rotolo-20110301,0,1453398.story"><span class="center_label">Full obituary</span></a><br>
