Elton John on The Prodigy: "They are probably the most authentic teams to come back out of England…ever”

Following the tragic passing of Keith Flint - the rave legend and former frontman for the long-lasting UK group, The Prodigy - Elton John has introduced that he'll pay tribute to the late singer throughout this week's episode of his 'Rocket Hour' present on Apple's Beats 1 radio service.

For the present's preview, Elton John tells his listeners: “I am opening the present with ‘Firestarter’ to pay tribute to Keith Flint, who handed away. What a disgrace. What a seminal file, what a seminal group they're or had been. I don’t know in the event that they’ll proceed, however after I first heard that and noticed the video I simply thought, 'wow, what is that this?!' Such a tragedy. My condolences to Keith’s household and the band. They are probably the most authentic teams to come back out of England...ever.”

The Prodigy's beloved bandmate was discovered useless from an obvious suicide at his residence in Dunmow, Essex, on the morning of March four. He was 49 years previous.

Keith Flint's rave-induced vitality, high-octane sound and unparalleled stage presence touched each nook of clubland. Over every week after his passing, tributes to Flint proceed to pour in from quite a few sides of the music trade and past.

Recently, a petition was created to erect a statue of Keith Flint in his hometown of Braintree in Essex, England. Sign it by going right here.

Elton John’s Rocket Hour airs this Saturday, March 16 at four:00 pm GMT on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Tune in here.
