New documentary explores the early years of David Bowie’s career

A new documentary depicting the life of David Bowie entitled ‘The First Five Years’ is in production.

The new insight will serve as the prequel to previous documentaries ‘David Bowie: Five Years’ and ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ which were previously shown on the BBC.

According to David Bowie News, the project will focus on the early years of David Bowie and will air in 2019.

Far Out Magazine has contacted the BBC for more information.

While on the subject of Bowie, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has recently explained how David Bowie help him through his drug and alcohol struggles.

Reznor, recalling the time when his band toured with Bowie in 1995, explained how the late icon helped him see the “light at the end of the tunnel.”

Reznor discussed in-depth how his battle with alcohol and drug-taking crept up on him as his band grew in popularity: “I wasn’t the guy who aged 12 had a beer and turned into a werewolf,” he said. “It kind of crept up. I wasn’t prepared for the transformative effect of fame and recognition. Now everyone’s here to see me, and I still feel like I don’t belong there, that I don’t deserve to be there, that I don’t know how to act.

“But I found myself uncomfortable in a scenario where everybody wants to be your friend,” he said. “Having a drink or two was a tool. It did help, for a while, until it started to define who I was. In every scenario, I had to drink, because that was me now.”
