The Prodigy’s Keith Flint has died, aged 49. Police were called to his home in North End, Essex, this morning (March 4) after concerns for his welfare but Flint was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police stated that the death is not being treated as suspicious.
After meeting producer Liam Howlett at a rave in 1989, Flint initially joined The Prodigy as a dancer. He became the face of the group after taking lead vocals on 1996 No. 1 hits “Firestarter” and “Breathe”.
Flint had recently completed a tour of Australia with The Prodigy and was due to embark on an American tour in May promoting their latest album, 2018’s No Tourists.
