Suze Rotolo Passes at 67

Posted by Miss Ess, March 1, 2011 09:56am | Post a Comment

The woman who shared the cover of Bob Dylan's The Freewheelin' and both dated and inspired the artist for 3 highly influential early years, Suze Rotolo, has passed away in New York City at 67 after a long illness. She wrote a fascinating autobiography a couple of years back in great part about her life with Dylan that is recommended reading! Sure am glad she was able to share her thoughts and write it before she died. Rest in peace, Suze Rotolo.

Beth Ditto's Solo Video "I Wrote the Book"

the gossip

Beth Ditto's band The Gossip once played an instore in SF on my birthday, back in '04. I was so excited to see them play! I'd been a fan since the first notes of That's Not What I Heard rang through my college radio station. What I remember most about the fateful instore date is that poor Beth tripped UP the stairs in the back bowels of Amoeba, totally fell down, and was mortified! Poor gal! But she was so sweet! And the instore rocked, too! (The Gossip played another one in Hollywood a couple years back, too.)

Anyway, fast forward to the now, and Beth is releasing a solo album this March and the video for the first single, "I Wrote the Book" is quite Madonna-esque and supremely dance-y. Check it out here!
