This special episode is a preview to a new series I am premiering over on Patreon.com/TheStoryBehind for Executive Producers at the $5 per month level called MUSE.

The series follows Pattie Boyd. And, if you don’t know her name now, you’ve probably heard a few songs she is said to have inspired, like "Something" by The Beatles, "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton, and most famously, "Layla" by Eric Clapton when he was part of Derek & the Dominos.

Oh, and did I mention that "Layla" was written as a love song for her while she was married to Eric’s best friend, George Harrison?

But before we get into the main characters of our story, Pattie & George & Eric & Layla (oh yes, that Helvetica shirt is coming), I wanted to talk first about muses in general. The Greek origin and the word itself.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Muses.
