Reports breaking this morning of Keith Flint, vocalist of The Prodigy, has passed away. Several sources state police were called this morning at 8:10 am and aren’t treating the death as suspicious but remain at his home and will be subject to a coroner’s investigation.
Whilst not technically a rock or metal band, they were still an alternative act and brought electronic music to the masses. Right at home on a rock/metal festival bill, plenty of people who only call themselves a fan of those genres will still wax lyrical about their love for The Prodigy.
Flint’s next of kin have been informed.
UPDATE AS OF 12:40. The band have since issued a statement on his passing:
It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.
