Pronouncing David Bowie
The BBC has helped settle a dispute and I wanted to share.
David Bowie is indeed pronounced BOH-ee (-oh as in no) rather than BOW-ee (-ow as in now), which is commonly how Brits pronounce it (well, except for David Bowie himself).
For the record, while we are at it, his supermodel wife is Iman (pronounced ee-Man), rather than eye-Man.
Now that that is out of the way, Let’s Dance.

I’ve always pronounced it Bowie (as in Bo – wee).
