Guys not to pick nits but as a proud Texan I need to gently correct you. Jim Bowie’s name and by association his knife are pronounced BOO E not BOW E. He’s a hero, not a dead rock star.
Of course we missed the proper Texan way to say it. We went with the fact that we’ve always heard the Bowie knife pronounced like the rock star. Thanks for letting us know. Wish we knew before recording.
