A sad story is making headlines around the world today after a famous lead singer was just found dead in his home. According to reports, Keith Flint has passed away.
"Keith Flint, the frontman of pioneering British electronic group The Prodigy, has been found dead at his home aged 49, the band has confirmed. Flint's distinctive appearance, vocals, and dancing made him one of the most recognizable figures on the British electronic scene, with hits including 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe' propelling the group to commercial success throughout Europe and the United States," wrote CNN.
Flint's bandmates took to social media to share the news of his death. At this time, it appears to be an apparent suicide. Officials are investigating the incident.
"The news is true, I can't believe I'm saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend," Howlett wrote on the group's official Instagram profile. "I'm shell shocked, angry, confused and heartbroken," he added.
Keith was living in Essex, England at the time of his passing. Fans, close friends, and family members were shocked at the news. Many expressed complete disbelief and heartbreak through their touching posts on social media.
The Prodigy became the first dance group to headline the UK's illustrious Glastonbury Festival in 1997 and was set to play the festival again this year. They were still performing shows and creating new music even at this stage of their careers.
"We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Keith and the life-changing music they made and championed," electronic group Chase & Status added, while British radio presenter Jo Whiley wrote: "Whenever our paths crossed he was an absolute sweetheart. Really lovely. Incredible iconic frontman with a soft center."
