The mystery woman on the cover of a Bob Dylan album has died, aged 81.

Sally Grossman was the wife of Dylan’s manager at the time. She died on their estate in Woodstock.



  • Joel stein says:

    She was on a cover of an album- certainly not Dylan’s “muse”.

  • Alexander Platt says:

    A frequent donor to jazz and world-music programs at the Maverick Concerts, Sally Grossman was an amazing woman, truly one of the last great Woodstock originals. Picking up the pieces of her formidable husband’s business after his sudden death, Sally lived one helluva life, and I salute her.

  • Russell Platt says:

    “Muse” or not, Sally Grossman was a huge character in Woodstock—one of the big personalities who made the place iconic in the late 60s and 70s. Adieu.
