The Prodigy share tribute to Keith Flint on late frontman's 50th birthday
The Prodigy have shared a tribute to Keith Flint on what would have been his 50th birthday.
The rave pioneer was found dead at his Essex home on March 4. An inquest later reached an open verdict, concluding that there was not sufficient evidence that he intended to kill himself.
Bandmates Liam Howlett and Maxim marked the date with an Instagram post featuring a series of images of the frontman, including photos of him performing and more intimate backstage shots.
“Happy birthday Flinty, not a single day passes u aren’t in our thoughts [sic], we miss you brother,” they wrote.
“Raise the roof wherever u are m*********! L & M …. X”
They signed off with the hashtags “#weliveforever,” “#weliveforthebeats,” “#raisetheroof” and “#neverstop.”
Following Flint’s death, the group marked the passing of their “brother” and “best friend” with a statement on social media.
They hailed him as “a true pioneer, innovator and legend” who “will be forever missed” and confirmed that all planned tour dates would be cancelled “with immediate effect.”
