The Girl In The Song - the stories behind music's great muses

The Hollies, 'Carrie Anne': Although the song was released in May 1967, the identity of the muse wasn't revealed until 1995 when Graham Nash was being interviewed for a documentary TV series. The song was written about Marianne Faithfull, who had had a brief fling with the band's singer Allan Clarke. Nash had written the song about her, but was "too shy" to use her real name.
