Gutted.


As an aside:

We turned down tickets to see them (supported by Pendulum- 2 of my favourite bands) to go to my cousin's wedding a few years ago.

On the way home from the wedding we broke down at 3am 70 miles from home and she got divorced 18mths later!

I must admit when I heard this it was like a small part of me died, I knew him a bit through various ways, he always had time to talk ( mainly about bike racing) loved the music, I see the Prodigy at V Festival years ago as i live just down the road, they still are one of the best live groups ive seen, such a shame, i wish people with problems would seek help instead of hiding it away

A very sad day

I agree.. What a sad loss.
He has steered me though parties, music, raves, driving cars, living life and having so many good times in my life.
RIP Keith

No need to apologise, I'll bet significantly more people don't like the Prodigy than do so you are in the majority.

Not sure how, but the acid scene somehow passed me by so whilst I do like many of their songs, they won't feature in my top 10 favourite bands for example. Nevertheless I respect the huge talent of Keith and the other members in creating a new musical genre and some cracking tunes.

From what I read, his off stage persona was diametrically opposite to that onstage and he seemed like a very nice person. Too young but hey his legacy lives on

We where doing a trackday at Spa a few years ago in a Mini Gp2. Keith came running over at full speed to tell us all about his own GP2 works and how much he loved it. We chatted for a good 20 minutes about cars and bikes before going to do some laps.

He seemed like a really friendly down to earth bloke. Such sad news!!

Prodigy are a big part of my life. Up there with the best in my eyes, even if it's not too everyone's taste, they paved the way for hundreds of artists.

I grew up listening to them, have blown many speakers enjoying their fruits, have seen them in concert twice ( including with an unheard of Pendulum at the time ! )

Friends have shared garages with him on bike track days and said he was a passionate and very friendly biker.

I won't lie and say I feel slightly empty know Prodigy are no more.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!
