Keith Flint, the frontman of British techno band The Prodigy, has died aged 49.

Police confirmed that a man aged 49 was found dead at a home in Essex at 8.10am on Monday morning.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "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 March 4.

"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."

Flint was a founding member of the band, having initially started as a dancer when the group formed in Essex back in 1990.

He eventually took on the vocals, and was famed for wild performances with matching, colourful mohawks either side of his head.

RIP
they went off live, huge energy and stage presence, which is odd for an electronica act.

Sadly though I read the Op then clicked the link thinking 'was it drugs?' pretty sure it would be or at least related to heavy usage... I wasn't expecting Suicide but that could be related to heavy drug usage No

I did the same.

Tho domestic issues have been cited as a possible trigger for his suicide he's always openly said he'd end his  own life when he was ready. It's perhaps noteworthy that his age ended in a 9 - ie he was on the cusp of starting a new decade - this is often a high risk time for middle age crisis - or worse, I feel. Just my opinion!  Prodigy frontman Keith Flint dies aged 49 2190311264

A very unique talent, it will be so poignant at Glastonbury this year, he was booked in to play. RIP.
