The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint was commemorated yesterday in a funeral service at St Mary’s Church in Braintree, Essex, and fans were invited along to “raise the roof”. Those fans gave “Keef” – who sadly died aged 49 earlier this month (March 4) – the send off he deserved.
Fans are invited to line the procession route, starting at 3pm in Braintree, Essex on Fri 29th March, to pay their final respects & 'raise the roof' for Keef! If anyone wishes to lay flowers or tributes these should be sent to St Mary's church in Bocking, no later than 2pm Friday pic.twitter.com/cMTDv2jKi9
Videos on Twitter show the public procession that preceded Keith Flint’s private service, with a black horse-drawn carriage moving through the streets. As he was carried into the church, the soundtrack was System Of A Down’s “Aerials” (there are now a few comments on the song’s YouTube video saying RIP, showing how it will be forever changed for many Prodigy fans).
Celebrations in the street before and after the procession, though, were much more lively (as you’d imagine Keith would have liked). In more Twitter videos, the crowd raves to the most iconic Prodigy tunes, and a pub by the church does its bit by blaring out songs.
