Scott Vogel writes in the Washington Post about the girl who was the inspiration for the famous song. He seems suprised that she never received royalities from the song. But that's the way it works. Eric Clapton and Ray Davies make the big bucks - Layla and Lola get squat.

It's a travel article so Heliosa Pinheiro - now about 62 - gets mentioned at the begining and end - so keep reading. From her photo I can see why she would inspire a song.
