i have this tape...

iirc the prodigy was the first electronic music i got into, with mftjg album, after that came the chemical brothers and so on...

rip dude...

i bleached my hair at the time probably influenced by him, hehe, good times... experience and mftjg are great albums, fat of the land is also cool but after that i got bored with their music, after all discovering afx took all my interest out of those bands...

Only just seen this thread. Have a shared acquaintance who knew him pre Prodigy who said he was a generally lovely chap and true raver who would dance all night. Safe journey Keith, you made a lot of people's lives better.

ok - gotta share this anecdote:

 

i never met Keith, but a girl i went to college with was good friends with him since way back in the day.

 

one time he was visiting her in san francisco and they were driving around town. this was sometime in the mid-nineties. they were driving by this nice hotel and my friend looks over at this guy who was getting out of his car and does a double-take... is that... it is! it was Steve Jobs.

 

my friend says to Keith "hey that's Steve Jobs!" i don't know if Keith even knew who Steve was at the time but Keith looks over, rolls down the passenger window, sticks his whole upper body out and shouts "Oi! Steve!!!"  :lol:

 

Steve Jobs looks up all startled, sees Keith grinning crazily at him, and spins around - runs into the hotel without a word.

 

 

rip Keith. haven't heard from anyone with a single bad thing to say about the man & that says a lot about him.

They played twice that weekend. On the main stage and a longer set in the dance tent. The dance tent gig was absolutley brutal. Sweat pouring off the ceiling. It was ridiculously hot that summer.

I just found out about the news. I’m not on social media a lot these days and somehow this just flew under my radar.
Very sad, indeed.
I was a huge fan of Jilted when it was new and a big raver. I also remember hearing Firestarter for the first time and being blown away. It was definitely the beginning of the end for underground rave in some ways but it was gooood. Those were fun times. Lots of feels. He was deserving of being the first mainstream raver/rock-star.
I’m loving all the love for him in this thread. It’s also really cool to hear he seemed like a cool dude in a lot of ways.
Fun anecdote on Wikipedia...
“In 2014, he bought and renovated the Leather Bottle pub in Pleshey, Essex and became a popular landlord.[23] Flint kept a jar in which customers were required to put a pound if they made a "firestarter" joke as he lit the pub's fire.”

The funeral procession looked very fitting, fans turned out in great numbers, paying their respects but also "raising the roof" as requested by the rest of the band.
