David Bowie died of liver cancer just two days after his 69th birthday in 2016. Now in honor of what would have been his 71st birthday today, HBO will air the Bowie documentary ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ tonight at 8.
The movie’s title from filmmaker Francis Whately riffs on Whatley’s 2013 Bowie documentary ‘David Bowie: Five Years’ (the title “Five Years” is also the name of the opening song to Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust album), and delves into the the creation of Bowie’s final two albums “The Next Day” (2013) and “Blackstar” (2016) and Broadway musical “Lazarus”.
