Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Gavin Rossdale is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Gavin Rossdale usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Gavin Rossdale also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments.

Gavin has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Gavin and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Gavin Rossdale needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
