THE Prodigy star Keith Flint has been found dead at his home, aged 49.

The iconic singer, from Dunmow, Essex, was discovered at around 8am this morning after police and paramedics were called to the property.

Officers remain outside the rural cottage this morning but his death is not being treated as suspicious.

An Essex Police spokesman told The Sun Online: "We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at just after 8.10am on Monday.

"We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

An East of England Ambulance spokeswoman said: "We were called at 8.08am with reports of a man who was unconscious in Dunmow.

“We sent an ambulance officer, Essex and Herts Air Ambulance and one ambulance. Sadly a man in his forties died at the scene.”
FROM UNDERGROUND SCENE TO MUSIC ICON

The Prodigy emerged from the underground rave scene of the early 1990s to become one of the UK’s biggest bands.

They reached Number 1 in the UK singles charts with Firestarter and Breathe in 1996 and notched up six Number 1 albums.

Flint became an iconic figure in the British music scene with his energetic live performances and distinctive hair and tattoos.

Born in Redbridge, East London, he moved to Braintree, Essex, as a child and met The Prodigy co-founder Liam Howlett at a nightclub in the town.

Flint was originally a dancer for the group but featured as a vocalist on Firestarter, which was them propelled into the mainstream.

O habitual nesta área de atividade :S

Como fã da banda é um momento triste. The Prodigy foram possivelmente a banda mais icónica da minha juventude. É a banda internacional que vi mais vezes ao vivo. O Keith não era um elemento essencial no processo criativo, mas era uma das imagens emblemáticas da banda e um elemento fundamental na performance ao vivo.

É difícil explicar o sentimento que surge nestas ocasiões em que morre alguém que não conhecemos pessoalmente, mas cuja trajectória seguimos durante décadas. Penso que a tristeza que sentimos nestas ocasiões esteja relacionada com a despedida de mais um pouco da nossa juventude.

Enfim, RIP Keith.

RIP

Aparentemente segundo alguma C.S., foi suicídio. R.I.P.

A informação veio de um membro da banda.

Rip estes gajos e os Linkin Park fizeram parte da minha adolescência e tal como eles continuo a ouvir músicas dos 2 grupos todos os dias, os the prodigy tem músicas meias estranhas tipo vodoo people entre outras mas sempre gostei do estilo, principalmente este gajo, tinha uma panca do carai.

“Reports today, on news of Keith Flint’s death, have tended to describe him as The Prodigy’s singer. Really, he wasn’t quite that: he was something less, and something much, much more. He was their figurehead.”
