In wake of Keith Flint‘s tragic death, legendary musician and fellow countryman, Elton John, has paid tribute to the late singer on his Rocket Hour show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio. While an inundation of tributes have been paid to the late singer, a petition calling for a statue of Flint to be erected in his hometown of Braintree, Essex has begun to attract great attention.
“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.”
