RIP Keith Flint

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Apparently he took his life.
I have so much early teen memories connected with The Prodigy.

Wow, such terrible news.
The Prodigy were a massive part of my youth, so much energy and influence.

This is very sad to hear ... :( :( ... and even more terrible ... I'm very sorry for him and for his friends and family, whose lives have also crashed now ...

Funnily enough, T in the Park (95 or 96, something like that, Leftfield, Black Grape and Alanis Morrisette also played, so that one) was the one for me, bloody mental locals larging it like they meant it and seemingly half the festival up on the stage by set's end. Glorious.

I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few days. I think it's terribly sad when anyone kills themself. I hear that the key demographic, people most at risk of suicide, are men aged 45-50.

That's an awful lot of us.

Look out for one another.

And if anyone ever wants to reach out to me for any reason, please let me know.

Indeed, mental health is no joke, and it's always good to remember our people that at the end of the day we are a community, and we, Heartlanders will always be there for each other.

So sad. Seeing John Lydon's response was heartbreaking as well. Awfully sad for everyone.
