Visconti is Bowie's long-time producer. He first worked with Bowie on the singer's second studio album, Space Oddity. The duo worked together on several albums over the last five decades, including Bowie's two most recent LPs, The Next Day and this year's Blackstar, according to Rolling Stone.

Woodmansey, on behalf of the band, asked fans to "help us celebrate his life and music, that's what he would have wanted" in a Facebook post on Monday.
