The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has reportedly died at the age of 49.
It's reported that the vocalist was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex, earlier this morning.

A spokesman for Essex police told the Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/mar/04/prodigy-singer-keith-flint-dies-aged-49): "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."

Suicide.

I own a fair few Prodigy records - loved them around 1994 and Firestarter is one of the best singles of the 1990's.  Saw them twice - unlike everyone else, I didn't enjoy either show - but then I was stone cold sober and went to both on my own.

Really sorry he is gone - it does give pause, makes me think I need to treat people a little kinder...

Always a shame when it ends like this, and he seemed like a decent bloke. Not a fan of their music though.
