Keith Charles Flint was an English vocalist, dancer, and occasional motorcycle racer, best known to a wide audience for his work with the seminal electronic group The Prodigy. Beginning as a backup dancer with the group, Flint would later become a frontman for The Prodigy by 1996, lending his appearances as a songwriter and vocalist to some of their biggest commercial hits, such as "Firestarter", "Breathe", "Baby's Got A Temper", and "Omen". Flint's iconic punk-inspired appearance became indelibly associated with the group through their music videos, and almost certainly played a major role in The Prodigy's mainstream success, and legacy as a key influence in the subgenres of big beat, breakbeat, and hardcore dance.
On March 4th, 2019, Keith Flint was found dead in his Essex home of a suspected suicide, as The Prodigy was in the midst of a major world tour. A massive outpouring of grief and tribute from peers such as The Chemical Brothers, Liam Gallagher, Azealia Banks, Gary Numan, Ho99o9, Frank Turner, and many more soon followed. These tributes reflected not just on the major influence and contributions Flint had made via The Prodigy, but of his gentle temperment, wide-reaching generosity, and warmth as an individual, in sharp contrast to his aggressive stage persona.
