It Ain't Me, Babe - 1964

"Bob Dylan first met Sara Lownds sometime in the early 1960s. They married in late 1965 and had four children, but the marriage broke down and they divorced in 1977".
“Sara” stands alone as one of the most powerful and naked songs of Dylan’s entire output. Dylan had written plenty of songs about the women he was romantically linked with – including Suze Rotolo and Joan Baez – but the characters in his songs always appeared under pseudonyms, sung under a false persona. Sara is written autobiographically, showing Dylan at his most vulnerable".

"Sara Dylan was the first wife of legendary folk-rock singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Before she became known as the wife of Bob Dylan, Sara was known by her birth name, Shirley Marlin Noznisky. She was born on October 25, 1939, in Wilmington, Delaware. Sara married Bob Dylan at a quiet ceremony on November 22, 1965, and the couple had four children together".
"She stays very quiet. She hired a famous lawyer in the divorce and got $36 million plus half the royalties for all the Dylan songs written between 1965 and 1977. Part of the deal is that she stays mum on Bob. I thought I’d heard that she remarried but further research didn’t find anything".
"In interviews in the last decade, Jakob Dylan has said that his parents were good parents after the split and put the children first. She’ll be 82 this year".
If You See Her, Say Hello, 1975
I've never been a Bob Dylan fan. It's not that I don't like him, I do, but I drifted toward others.
But I love this photo.
Thanks, Nancy...that was great!

"The setting alone provided some culture shock Monday night: Dylan, for years the symbol of a defiant, questioning spirit, and the West Hollywood restaurant, a longtime citadel of the show-biz establishment".
"As longtime ASCAP songwriters stood by in suits and ties, Dylan--wearing motorcycle boots, leather pants and a white T-shirt under his loose-fitting black sport coat--accepted the Founders Award from ASCAP President Hal David".
"To millions of rock fans in the ‘60s, Dylan represented a break from the traditional songwriting mold epitomized by an industry power like ASCAP".
"Yet Dylan sought graciously to bring the two eras together in a brief acceptance speech".
“I’d like to feel like I’m (accepting this) for a lot of people who started out in rock . . . and folk music,” he said standing at a podium, squinting in the glare of TV lights and flashbulbs. “We never claimed to be as good as Johnny Mercer or Hal David or Jerome Kern or any of those people. We just used that medium to write what we were feeling.” He then quoted the lines from a 1929 song that one of his own heroes, Elvis Presley, once cited in accepting an award:
Without a song, the day would never end. Without a song, the road would never bend. When things go wrong, a man ain’t got a friend, without a song". (Video & Read More)
