Bobby Went A-Courtin'

Turned down by Francoise Hardy, spurned by Marianne Faithful, Bob Dylan turned to Mavis Staples for love. I'll leave the rest up to hiphoprnbsoul ("where hip-hop, R&B, and sould collide!"):

Mavis Staples, singer from the legendary soul group the Staples Singers, recently admitted to having a romantic relationship with fellow music icon Bob Dylan. In a recent interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the 63 year-old vocalist, known for 1970s classics "I'll Take You There" and "Let's Do It Again,"  spoke about their secretive trysts in the early 1960s when they would meet up at folk fests. "We courted awhile," she admitted. "We were an item, but nobody knew it but us."
