Keith Flint, lead man of The Prodigy has been found dead at home aged 49.
Says he committed suicide. That makes it even more tragic.
True then. Very sad when someone takes their own life.
Gutted. I was just leaving school when the prodigy broke into the music scene so they very much feel like a group that belonged to my generation. For me this is up there with Kurt Cobains untimely death.
I was never a fan of The Prodigy but feel sad that someone of this age feels that they can no longer cope with life and has to end it all. I know how his family, friends and huge fan following must be feeling right now. So sad. RIP.
All too common yet funding for mental health is being cut all over the place.
Luke Perry now, had a stroke last week. Aged 52
Gutted to hear about Keith flint, loved prodigy
Given the apparently tragic circumstances of his death maybe, but I think he's got perfect funeral entrance and exit music in Breathe and Firestarter.
I remember Out of Space being on one of my first Now cassettes and my sister thought #pay close attention# was #hey close the kitchen# so I did a Buzzcocks-esque misheard lyrics type thing and rewrote the song to be about a restaurant failing a health inspection.
#We sent out health inspectors#
#They found bacteria# x2
#You've gone and failed your hygiene inspection#
#Cos you're foods got contamination#
#And you've got a rat infestation#
#Hey close the kitchen#
Thought this was a particularly nice tribute
Magenta Devine, 61.
Who remembers her?
Sorry, who? Not wishing to sound flippant but I've really no idea who she was?
Involved in yoof TV back in the day and I think she was romantically involved with one of Sigue Sigue Sputnik who I started a thread about on here a few weeks ago H.
Wasn't very famous but I think a few of a certain age with an interest in less mainstream TV and music may remember her.
Ehud Arye Laniado, the billionaire diamond trader has died after complications during an operation.
Just shows that however much money you have a 'small' problem can cause your death.....

Didn't she do the "Rough Guide to" series.
Was she on the same music program terry christian and paula yates compared, a sort of goth type.
The Word? Not sure she was.
Will they be able to get the lid on his coffin
Just checked and she was on rough (travel) guide.
I see Jerry Merryman has died as well. He was the bloke who helped invent the hand held calculator. Remember those school days?
Jan-Michael Vincent (Airwolf) aged 74. I thought he would only be about mid to late 50's!
So the second photo is from his younger days and the first one is after the plastic surgery and Botox?
Carmine Persico, 85, Mafia mob boss.
Died in jail after seving 33 years of 139 year sentence.
Murdered or ordered the murders of at least 20 people.
Aquitted from all the murders due to no-one willing to testify.
Nah. The 2nd photo was from when he made a cameo appearance in the Walking Dead. He told the producers he wouldn't need to bother the make up department!
They’ll be no link between suicides and lack of mental health support and that money is not the answer bollox
Sad one for Father Ted fans, Pat Laffan has died. He played Pat Mustard and was responsible for a LOT of hairy babies on the island.
That was something I never got around to watching. It just never appealed to me somehow.
I wonder if they'll put his massive tool in his box?
