    PopEater reports that Bob Dylan muse Susan "Suze" Rotolo, who inspired several of the singer's love songs, died Friday night at home in her New York City loft following a long illness. She was 67-years-young.

    The teenage Rotolo met Dylan backstage after one of his concerts. In Chronicles, Dylan described her as "the most erotic thing I'd ever seen." The two dated between 1961 and 1964. She is immortalized as the woman walking arm-in-arm with Dylan on the cover of his album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

    Rotolo left NYC to study at the University of Perugia in Italy, which inspired Dylan to pen both "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" and "Tomorrow is a Long Time." They eventually split.

    R.I.P., Miss Rotolo.
