Sally Grossman, Iconic Figure On Bob Dylan’s 1965 Cover Art, Dead At 81

The death has been announced of Sally Grossman, the wife of Bob Dylan’s former manager Albert. She was aged 81.

Sally Grossman died in her sleep at her home in New York on 10 March 2020, according to Anna Buehler, niece to the deceased, speaking to Rolling Stone.

Tributes have been pouring in from around the world, from celebs and other folk alike, following the announcement of her death. Among those who have paid tribute to her are the English author Neil Gaiman and Rolling Stone author Angie Martoccio.

In a tweet, Gaiman described himself as sad over the death. He said Sally Grossman was “funny, salty, sometimes grumpy.”

On her part, Angie Martoccio bid Grossman rest in peace. Angie shared the cover art of Bob Dylan’s 1985 LP “Bringing It All Back Home,” long described by culture buffs as iconic, wondering what the cover art would have been without her pose.

By the way, at the time the cover art of “Bringing It All Back Home” was released, few know who Sally Grossman was. When her husband died in 1986, she channeled her energies into overseeing his Bearsville Records.
