In our business, there are no prizes for being kind, but if there was, that Grammy would be yours

 

Following the tragic news of Keith Flint’s death, James Blunt has paid tribute to the late Prodigy frontman by sharing a touching story.

Flint was found dead at his Essex home yesterday. The surviving bandmates paid remembered Flint as “a true pioneer, innovator and legend”, before Liam Hewlett revealed that he had taken his own life.

In joining the many to pay tribute to Flint, Blunt shared a memory in which he was touched by Flint’s kindness at an awards ceremony.

“At the Q Awards years ago, when Noel Gallagher was saying he was leaving Ibiza because I’d moved there, and Damon Albarn refused to be in the same picture as me, and Paul Weller was saying he’d rather eat his own shit than work with me, Keith Flint came over, gave me a hug, and said how thrilled he was for my success,” wrote Blunt on Twitter.

He added: “Keith, I only met you once, but I shed a tear at the news of your death. In our business, there are no prizes for being kind, but if there was, that Grammy would be yours.”

Joining the tributes yesterday, Emily Eavis hailed their power and influence as well as revealing that the band were booked to perform at Glastonbury 2019.

“We are so saddened to hear about the passing of Keith Flint,” wrote Eavis. “He’s played here so many times with the Prodigy and was booked for 2019. What an incredible frontman.” 

“It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint,” said the surviving Prodigy members Liam Howlett and Maxim Reality in a statement. “A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.”
