The Prodigy found huge fame after emerging from the underground rave scene in the early 1990s.

They went on to become one of the UK’s biggest bands.

Prodigy also has six No1 albums.

Keith became an iconic figure in the British music scene thanks to his energetic live performances and his distinctive look of wild hair and lots of tattoos.

The singer was born in Redbridge, East London, before moving to Braintree, Essex as a child.

It was after the move that he met Prodigy co-founder Liam Howlett in one of the town’s nightclubs.

Keith was originally a dancer for the group, but it was his work as vocalist hit Firestarter propelled them to mainstream fame.
