Bob Dylan in Greenwich Village RIP Suze Rotolo

Posted on March 13, 2011 at 12:08am 2 Comments

Article from The Village Voice about Suze Rotolo's death Posted by Marcia Stehr (Marci Foreman) on February 28, 2011 at 4:45pm The Village lost a life-long partisan and a true voice last Friday, with the passing of Susan Rotolo after a long illness, at home in her Noho loft and the arms of her husband of 40 years, Enzo Bartoccioli. Suze Rotolo was a talented artist (the maker of artist books and delicate book-like objects), as well as an illustrator, a sometime activist, an… Continue

Hey gang....doing a little research. Who did you see in Greenwich Village? When and where? I saw Jackson Browne open for Randy Newman at the Bitter End in 1974, I grew up in California so missed those early days.

Do you live in the Village? I assume so. And do you know the Paul family at the Washington Square Hotel? I always stay there and we've become good friends. Have discussed all this sort of stuff with them. The Hotel is part of the history.

I've met him and we're in touch. Saw Judy's interview the other day - she sent me a very nice tribute for Bob's memorial. Did you know Bob Shelton? I met him in Manchester in 1979 and we remained friends until his death. I'm sort of an unofficial executor, working with his family. Was born in London in 1957 but was fascinated by all this music even in my teens and have since interviewed Baez, Collins, Janis Ian, Pete Yarrow and many others. In fact, as Marci might have mentioned, for the last few months I've been trying to interest people in an idea - "Bringing It All Back Home to Washington Square", a folk festival in the park, in September 2011, marking the fiftieth anniversary of WSP own free speech movement and also the fiftieth anniversary of Bob's celebrated NYT Dylan review and 1961 as a high point, or the launch pad, of the wider folk revival. Everyone I've spoken to thinks it's a great idea - but I'm 3000 miles away and not an impresario. Have poss interest from a TV producer...

Happy Traum at the Gerdes Folk City 50th Reunion 6/7/10 "Buckets Of Rain" and talks about Dylan

"BRING BACK THEM GOOD OLD DAYS!" ~ Comments from our members!

Lisi Tribble about Gerdes Folk City:
"Jay Byrd was the last hooter- Dustin Hoffman based his character "Hawk" in Ishtar on him. Enamel the Camel. The Roches. Rick Danko. David Massengill. George Gerdes. Eric Andersen. Mark Johnson. Gregory Fleeman. Jack Hardy. Robin Williamson. Tret Fure. Ferron. Sammy Walker. Lach. . .--Anderson,

Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."

"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
~Ida Langsam

"This website is gonna catch on fire. Great idea! When I get to something other than an iPhone I'll upload some pix and stuff. I'll be keeping tabs...I Think this kind of organized exposure for the artists willing to perform is Great. going to blossom"
~Bob Porco (grandson of Mike)

"Thanks so much for putting this whole thing together, and for inviting me to participate. I have such wonderful memories of the Bitter End and all the other coffee houses: Gerde's Folk City, The Gaslight Cafe... saw so many wonderful artists perform."
~Yvonne Fitzner
