One of electronic dance music’s greatest characters, Keith Flint of The Prodigy, has died aged 49. It was reported that he had died by suicide on the morning of Monday 4th March.
Onstage, Keith was a much-loved, fiery, madcap character — but offstage he was a gentle soul much loved by band, family and friends. He will be sorely missed.
For their first ever gig in 1990, at the Labyrinth night at the Four Aces in Dalston in East London, the band also recruited MC Maxim Reality from the Peterborough reggae scene. Additionally, for their first few shows they featured Keith’s friend Sharky as another dancer, but she soon left — leaving The Prodigy as a four-piece. This line-up continued for the rest of the decade.
Crossing over from rave to rock and back again, The Prodigy are undoubtedly one of the most important acts of the past 30 years.
