The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has died aged 49

The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has died aged 49 at his home.

Reportedly, police were called to the ‘Firestarter’ singer’s home in Dunmow, Essex, at around 8:00 am today (4th March) amid what they have cited as “concerns for his welfare”.

A spokesperson for Essex Police said: “We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, 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.”

The Prodigy issued a statement confirming Flint’s death on Twitter, writing: “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.”

Prodigy skyrocketed to fame in the 1990s, bringing their pioneering underground rave sound mainstream, scoring huge chart successes with two number 2 singles (‘Firestarter’ and ‘Breathe’) and racking up a total of six number one albums.
