When I wrote Bowie/Joey, I meant to illustrate that the pronounciation of Bowie rhymed with Joey.

He's never been called David Joey as far as I know, not even by a British DJ

"Boo-E", like the knife."


Now you're confusing me!
The knife is not pronounced 'Boo-E', it's pronounced 'Joey', like David Bowie. . . Beau-E
