BUSH'S GAVIN ROSSDALE REMEMBERS ROBIN WILLIAMS

As the world continues to mourn actor and comedian Robin Williams following his death on Monday (August 11th) at the age of 63, artists from every field of entertainment are sharing their thoughts about the late comic giant. We caught up with Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale on Tuesday (August 12th) and asked him to share what he'll remember most about Williams: "For me personally, along with his film work, it was his stand-up work that was just completely mesmerizing. He was just from literally another dimension, the way that he could bounce around, and his delivery, his timing, the subject matter -- and just his humanity and his warmth and compassion, and as we've seen so often, behind all that warmth and compassion there's such a sadness as well. It's just so devastating for his family, and just a very, very sad time."

Williams' body was discovered Monday morning by an assistant in a bedroom at the actor's California home. The coroner stated that Williams committed suicide by hanging.

In addition to actors, filmmakers and executives in Hollywood, rock musicians ranging from Ozzy Osbourne to Flea to Corey Taylor have posted their reactions to Williams' death on Twitter.

Rossdale is currently in the final stages of completing Bush's sixth studio album, with details about the title, release date and first single to be revealed soon.

The band's last album, 2011's The Sea Of Memories, followed a 10-year hiatus and featured the Number One rock single, "The Sound Of Winter."
