Elton John has paid the Flint’s tribute and he did on his Apple Beats 1 program Rocket Hour.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Flint had died as a result of hanging. Elton joins the likes of John Lydon, Faithless, James Blunt, Stereophonics, and hundreds of fans to pay tribute to the iconic vocalist.
Rocket Hour airs this Saturday, March 16th at 9am LA/12pm NY/4pm LDN on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
“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.”
