The Prodigy pay tribute to Keith Flint on third anniversary of his death

The Prodigy have paid tribute to their former frontman Keith Flint on the third anniversary of his death.

Aged 49 Flint passed away on March 4 2019 after taking his own life.

The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett and Maxim wrote: “It’s been three years… We miss u every single day brother, but we feel u always with and around us.

“Your Fire will never go out. Stay Punk brother. We live forever!”

In September a memorial was revealed of Flint in Hackney to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.

Street artist Akse worked on the tribute in partnership with the music and mental wellbeing festival Headstock.

The Flint memorial was funded by a Crowdfunder campaign led by Headstock, which raised over £10,000.

Headstock founder Atheer Al-Salim said: “Keith Flint was the original firestarter. He was a true trailblazer in electronic music…”

He continued: “Off-stage, Keith struggled with his mental health, and he talked candidly about his ‘dark periods’. Tragically, this culminated in him taking his own life.

“We’ve created this mural to help remember Keith and ensure that his flame continues to burn brightly – but also to raise awareness of Shout 85258, and the incredible 24/7 text support service it provides. We hope that the mural will help anyone that sees it know that confidential support is just a text message away.”

The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett also commented on the importance of the work, saying: “Respect to everyone for coming together to make this happen for a cause so close to us. Akse has done Keef proud.”
