Keith Flint



Keith Flint (born 17 September 1969) is a member of the British hard dance/rave band The Prodigy. Flint was born and raised in Braintree, Essex. In the late 1980s he met the DJ Liam Howlett in a rave club and expressed his appreciation of Howlett's music. Soon after, in 1990, he joined Howlett's new project, The Prodigy. Originally he was only a dancer, but in 1996 he was the vocalist on the hit single Firestarter. The accompanying video showcased Flint's new, punky look. This trend continued with the next Prodigy single Breathe, on which Flint performed the lead vocals. The 1997 album The Fat of the Land featured Flint's vocal contributions to several tracks. In 2002 the single Baby's Got a Temper was released. It was heavily influenced by Flint's punky style (the track having been adapted and rewritten from a song on Flint's shelved solo album), which lead to Howlett later discrediting the song as representing The Prodigy. On the next Prodigy album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004), Flint did not perform any vocals, although he did sing on one of the tracks on the Hotride single.
