Keith Flint full name Keith Charles Flint, was an English singer, musician and dancer.
Keith attended the Boswells School in Chelmsford and moved to Braintree after leaving school and travelling where he eventually met Liam Howlett at local rave club the Barn in Braintree.
Originally recruited to serve as the dancer by the Prodigy, Flint became the voice and face of the group for 1997’s The Fat of the Land, which produced the hits “Breathe,” “Firestarter” and controversial “Smack My Bitch Up” on both sides of the Atlantic; The Fat of the Land reached Number One on the Billboard 200 in July 1997.
Following a five-year recording hiatus at the peak of their popularity, the Prodigy and Flint released the 2002 single “Baby’s Got a Temper,” whose lyrics penned by Flint celebrated the “date rape” drug Rohypnol. Howlett would later disown the track and drop it from The Fat of the Land‘s 2004 follow-up Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, which featured guest vocalists in place of Flint.
