YOSHIKI -Life of a Japanese Rock Star-, a new documentary series, is slated to premiere on YouTube Originals in March 2020.
YOSHIKI was hand-picked by YouTube Originals as part of a select group of internationally-renowned artists such as Paul McCartney, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, BTS, Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Mark Ronson, Dwayne Johnson, and Taylor Swift. The six-episode series marks the first documentary program from a Japanese artist to be featured on YouTube Originals.
YOSHIKI -Life of a Japanese Rock Star- follows YOSHIKI’s many facets as a composer, rock drummer, classical pianist, and fashion designer and approaches the sometimes challenging behind-the-scenes reality of when music and passion intersect. YOSHIKI -Life of a Japanese Rock Star- offers a glimpse into the life of an artist who is active on the global stage. YOSHIKI commented that he hopes to inspire viewers as much as possible by discussing “why I became a musician, why I continue to be active, why I continue to exist”.
On Wednesday, Nov. 13, YOSHIKI appeared as the surprise guest at YouTube’s Brandcast Japan 2019, hosted by Google at Ryogoku Kokugikan, where it was announced that all six episodes of the documentary will be available for streaming on YouTube Originals starting March 2020.
