This Monday (1/8) HBO airs “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” a documentary that premiered last month on the BBC.
The Channel’s showing coincides with Bowie’s birthday–he’d be 71-years old.
The film spotlights Bowie’s last two albums, “The Next Day” and “Blackstar,” and his musical “Lazarus.” Among the highlights are interviews with his band-mates and riveting archival footage.
