George & EC were close friends...
EC wrote Layla, about George's then wife. He really must've wanted her bad.
When Eric showed her the song and told her it was for her, she finally caved and that was the first time they "did it".
Eric was hopelessly in love with Patti, and George was getting in so deep with the eastern religious thing that he had taken to neglecting her. Of course Eric eventually wound up marrying Patti..But neither George nor Eric treated her very well in the long run, according to her book. However, through it all George and Eric remained good friends.
