Following the tragic passing of Keith Flint – the rave legend and former frontman for the iconic UK group, The Prodigy – Elton John has announced that he’ll pay tribute to the late singer during this week’s episode of his ‘Rocket Hour’ show on Apple’s Beats 1 radio service.
For the show’s preview, Elton John tells his listeners: “I’m opening the show with ‘Firestarter’ to pay tribute to Keith Flint, who passed away. What a shame. What a seminal record, what a seminal group they are or were. I don’t know if they’ll continue, but when I first heard that and saw the video I just thought, ‘wow, what is this?!’ Such a tragedy. My condolences to Keith’s family and the band. They are one of the most original groups to come out of England…ever.”
