In the USA, even among Latinos uggggh Hispanics if you prefer it's
pronounced as Steve says it too- ray, however in Spanish speaking countries
or by Spanish dominant speakers his surname would be said with a soft e as
in Bey, too reh with a rollling r sound, not with second syllable emphasis
common is Spanish surnames pronounciation by non-Spanish speakers, remember
its PER ez, not Pe REZ, GO mez, not Go MEZ.

I am happy that Steve, like Brian Lynch, Sebastian Whitaker, Maria Muldaur,
Pedro Martínez, Cat Anderson, Billy Daniels, Barry White and a few other
minor names of music all share September 12th birthdates with yours truly.
