    What a shame. Apparently he was in very good health, running regularly, riding his horse around town :( Prodigy were HUGE when I was at university, still have two CDs (Music for a Jilted Generation and The Fat of the Land). Still get that tingling of excitement and rahhhhh when I hear their music.

    Liam Howlett, who formed the group in 1990, confirmed his death was a suicide. “The news is true, I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m shell shocked, fuckin angry, confused and heart broken ..... r.i.p brother Liam”.

    Such sad news. R.I.P. Keith.

    I first saw them around the time Charly was out, doing a mid-week set in Bangor of all places. Keith was a real pied-piper to all us young ravers (as someone said upthread).

    Sad news.
    i remember seeing Prodigy just before Christmas a while back, an excellent gig. It was well up there with the best of em.
    Was really sad to learn he ended his own life. :(

    Just picked up on this, very sad news :( :(

    I saw a more recent Prodigy gig at Glastonbury -- was it 2009 when they headlined the second stage? -- and that was an outstanding performance.

    This is how I remember them - euphoric, sweaty & slightly shambolic. A sound harder live than on record. The entire video's hard to watch cause the sound is poor, but it's a great snapshot of the period (cued to Charley collapsing into Everybody in the Place).

    A friend of mine who knew him wrote this on FB

    I'm really struggling with today's news about my rocking dance dude, Keith Flint. He was always a part of the MTV team in the 90s! He often invited us to his Braintree home for tea and biccies (which were often best before 1977)! I have so many happy memories of him - when he got stuck in his plastic orb in a true spinal tap moment, when we went to Waitrose in his full get up to the surprise of the local yummy mummies and his love of the song 'Solid as a Rock'. Kind, funny, gorgeous and what a dancer - rock in peace Keef!

    Not one of my best shots - but one hell of a performance. More energy than almost any other band I've seen!

    My office subdued today - I think everyone here was a fan and our sound engineer worked their last show here. :(

    Surprised to be so upset by this. I guess he was one of us.
    So many fellas not making it to 50 cos they can't look after themselves and/or they can't tell their friends about how they're feeling. :(

    ah shit. Prodigy at glasto in 95 was one of my best ever live experiences - and Keith whipped up a storm.
    And yeah - another man gone to suicide - its a fucking epidemic.

    This for me too. It's hit harder than I would have expected it to. But you're right, it's what you've put in your second paragraph isn't it. It's just so sad :(

    I have chastised my friend for making me make this same decision. We just got to the second stage for the closing songs. Ive never seen anything like it before and since and don't think i ever will. A whole field bounced in sync. I've still not forgiven her for that and I bloody well told her so today!

    This popped up on my FB feed, and I suppose it's a fitting tribute of sorts. Give it a minute.

    Fuuuck. Really sad, which seeming as I haven't listed to the prodigy for years, is surprising, but yes he was one of us and we've already lost too many of us - (what Orang Utan said basically).

    Really quite shocked by this. 49's my age.

    First dance act to headline the Pyramid at Glastonbury. They fucking rocked it too.

    RIP Keith. Had some fucking great nights out watching you. Thanks for that.
