The tensions boiled up after Bowie interfered the attempt of Underwood on taking Carol Goldsmith, who they both had a crush on, out on a date.

Mr. Underwood shared “Just to get the story straight, it was about a girl we both fancied. She came to my 15th birthday party - everyone was drunk at about eight, including David."

He continued,

“I was sensible and managed a date with her. David phoned me on the day and said she had told him she didn’t want to meet me because she wanted to go out with him.”

Well, Underwood gave a flying punch to Bowie which accidentally caused his one pupil to become permanently dilated. Because of deep corneal abrasion and paralysis of his iris sphincter muscle, his left eye appears to be brown and his right to be blue.

After Underwood was done telling the story he shared “Later David said I did him a favor,”

“Everyone talks about his eyes, don’t they?”
