Have Tissues Ready…
We’re just over 24 hours removed from hearing the tragic news of Keith Flint, frontman for The Prodigy, taking his own life. It obviously goes without saying that Keith was a true trailblazer in the world of rock & roll. Using not only his voice, but also his style and charisma, he helped change the game for many rock front-men and front-women to come. He is often imitated, yet never duplicated. He was one of the best, pure and simple.
When his tragic death was announced, there was hardly a single person from the rock community that didn’t take to social to pay their respects.
One such rock legend that paid his respects was Queen guitarist Brian May. He took to Instagram to post a long, heartfelt tribute to Keith remembering the first time he met him and how he was shocked by how nice he was.
Queen and The Prodigy truly seem like they’re worlds apart, but as Brian states in his post, Queen had a huge impact on Keith. Below is the Instagram post.
If this doesn’t get you choked up, nothing will. This shows that, one, even thought you may never would’ve guessed it, Queen have had such an impact on Keith, and two, that Brian is still ever so appreciative of the gratitude his fans give him.
This was a lovely tribute, through and through. RIP, Keith Flint.
