A Freewheelin' Time, By Suze Rotolo

Suze Rotolo is the girl nestling up to Dylan on the album cover of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. She met him in 1961 when she was 17 and he was 21, and this book is a record of their time together in folky, smoky Greenwich Village.

The Word On... Bob Dylan, Together Through Life

Bob Dylan: We lose all critical perspective when rock's biggest star is in town

A Bob Dylan insider told me a rather lovely story. On a tour of Australia, Dylan lighted upon one of the girls helping out backstage. "Did you enjoy the show?" he inquired. "Nah, I didn't!" came the fierce Australian response. A shocked Dylan asked why, and she told him. "Because you don't talk to the audience. You don't say hello. You don't say goodnight." "I'm not Frank Sinatra," Dylan drawled. "Well you should be," she exclaimed, and walked off. The next night Dylan did speak. Introducing a surprise encore, he said: "This one's for Marie", and went straight into "My Way", tapes of which can now fetch a tidy sum.
