Prodigy's Keith Flint dies aged 49
LONDON - Reuters
Flint became one of the best known faces of 1990s British electronic music, performing apparently random dance moves often with eccentric haircuts.
"I'm a fire starter, twisted fire starter," he sang in the 1996 hit. "I'm the self-inflicted, mind detonator, yeah."
Police were called to an address in Essex, eastern England, shortly after 8.10am on March 4.
"We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene," a police spokesman said. "The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."
Tributes have been made from his musical peers, including Ed Simons of dance duo the Chemical Brothers, who called him a “great man.” Beverley Knight said the Prodigy were one of “the most innovative, fearless, ballsy bands to grace a stage and Keith was perfection up front. We have lost a Titan.”
