London: Legendary singer David Bowie's early career is set to be the focus of a new documentary titled, The First Five Years.

As per reports in the Quad-City Times, Bowie "was honoured at The Muppets Take The O2, as Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem performed his track 'Suffragette City' as part of their run of musical numbers during the puppet troupe's first ever live show outside the United States."

In an interview with Variety, director of David Bowie: The Last Five Years, Francis Whately had confessed making the documentary from virtually no information. The process had taken intense research along with stitching bits of information from various sources.

"After he suffered a serious heart attack shortly after a 2004 concert in Germany, he hardly did any interviews, made only a handful of guest appearances, and used his legendary chameleonic abilities to attend concerts and films and wander his adopted hometown of New York and other cities relatively freely by dressing in ways that no one would never expect David Bowie to dress," says Variety of his final years.
