  1. Baez, Joan (2009), And A Voice to Sing With: A Memoir, New York City: Simon & Schuster, p. 61, I gave Time a long-winded explanation of the pronunciation of my name which came out wrong, was printed wrong in Time magazine, and has been pronounced wrong ever since. It's not "Buy-ezz"; it's more like "Bize," but never mind.
