Keith Flint found dead at home

Yep, the Prodigy guy. Only 49, found dead at home, and its not being treated as suspicious. Far, far too young :-(

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Sun says suspected suicide. Double tragic if so.

Liam Howlett confirms that in a tweet.

Flint had already made references to being suicidal in an interview with FHM in 2015, referring to his struggle with drugs use and depression, about pulling the plug when he thought he had done all he wanted to do.

He was scheduled to tour the Prodigy's new album though.

You know you're getting old when your heroes start to die and that you're really getting past it when your kids' heroes start to die.

49 is ultimately no age to go. How sad that someone who could bring so much joy to others could find so little of it inside himself to pull him out of his depression.

Lovey obit from Kathy Burke - "KF did what all great pop stars are supposed to do and scared kids' mums and dads." He also made a couple of classic singles along the way. RIP Mr Flint.
