1999 David Bowie Interview

BBC Newsnight (1999) Interview with David Bowie, by Jeremy Paxman

Jeremy Paxman: “At a personal level you don’t do drugs anymore?”

David Bowie: “No, absolutely not.”

Jeremy Paxman: “And you don’t drink?”

David Bowie: “I don’t drink either, no.”

Jeremy Paxman: “Not even a glass of wine or anything?”

David Bowie: “No, it would kill me if I started again.”

Jeremy Paxman: “What do you mean it will kill you?”

David Bowie: “I’m an alcoholic, so it would be a kiss of death for me to start drinking again. My relationships with my friends, my family, everybody around me are so good, and have been for so many years now I wouldn’t do anything to destroy that again. It is very hard to have relationships when you’re doing drugs and drinking, I found, for me personally, anyway. And you become closed off, unperceptive, insensitive…All the dreadful things that you’ve heard every other pop singer ever say. And I was very lucky that I found my out of that.”
