Los Angeles: McFly guitarist Tom Fletcher has blasted radio presenter Alan Brazil for describing actor Robin Williams` death `diabolical`.

Brazil had stirred controversy when he said he did not have a lot of sympathy towards the late comedian for committing suicide. Williams, who died at the age of 63 last week, was struggling with depression.

Fletcher, 29, spoke about his own battle with depression on his website. "Sometimes ... Alan, the storms come. I`m not talking about a light shower, I mean the full works. The darkest skies you have ever seen ... It`s so completely consuming that it is suddenly not only the only thing you know but the only thing you have ever known.

"All those coloured memories are now black and white. But the really weird thing about it for me is that when you`re in the middle of that storm it`s almost as if you don`t want a way out of it.

"You are in too deep, what`s the point in even trying to get out. Alan, it`s as though no one understands," he said in his long post.
