Liam Gallagher pays tribute to "mega-frontman" Keith Flint of The Prodigy

With an album in the can and some heavy promo to do, Liam Gallagher is popping up everywhere right now. The Why Me? Why Not? singer’s latest press session saw him sit across from Matt Wilkinson and talk about the new record. He also found room to pay tribute to Keith Flint, the lead singer of Prodigy, who sadly passed away this year.

The Oasis frontman had previously paid tribute to Flint during his Glastonbury performance and when sitting down with Wilkinson for his Beats 1 Radio show found himself lavishing more praise on the late singer while also saying that there was still “room for The Prodigy”.

Flint was pronounced dead at his Essex home when Police found his unconscious body after searching his house. The post-mortem revealed that Flint had hanged himself to death while there were both cocaine and alcohol in his system.

Gallagher reflected on the Prodigy star’s death. “It’s terrible that he got to that stage where he just had to do something like that, and all the other people that do that,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it, man.”

He then reflected on speaking Liam Howlett about the future of the band. “It’s like I said to him, there’s room for The Prodigy still, with or without Keith,” he said. “They’re that kind of band that can adapt to things. Even though [Flint] was a mega frontman and a big part of the thing… they’re just gonna have to look at it different and come at it from a different angle. That’s what I think The Prodigy were about.”
