LONDON — Keith Flint, the Prodigy lead singer who captured the hedonistic spirit of 1990s British rave culture, has died aged 49 in what the band’s founder described as a suicide. Flint was one of the best known faces of British electronic music, performing apparently random dance moves often with eccentric hair cuts, sometimes styled as devil’s horns, and heavy makeup around his eyes. Liam Howlett, founder of the group, said Flint had taken his own life. “Our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend. I’m shell shocked, fuckin’ angry, confused and heart broken,” Howlett said on Instagram. “R.I.P brother.” Police were called to an address in Essex on Monday where they found Flint who was pronounced dead at the scene. — Reuters
