Bob Dylan’s aunt, Irene Goldfine, has died at the age of 95. In her obituary, she thanks the music legend, along with his brother David, for taking care of her.
“Irene was the life of the party and the last to leave and was known for her cooking,” the obituary reads. “Thank you to her nephews David and Bob for always taking extra good care of her.”
Dylan played his first paid gig at Goldfine’s wedding, according to Robert Shelton’s 2011 book “Bob Dylan: No Direction Home.” His uncle had apparently offered him $25 to perform, but Dylan ended up asking his mom to give the money back later.
