Elton John shared kind words for Flint on his display Rocket Hour.

Sir Elton John shared some kind words for Keith Flint from the trailer for his show Rocket Hour, which airs on Apple Music’s Beats 1 March 16th. Kicking off the show with The Prodigy’s”Firestarter,” Elton John paid his respects to Flint, and described the group’s work as”seminal.”

On the topic of Flint’s passing, John said:

“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 heard that and saw the movie I just thought, ‘Wow, what’s this?! ’ Such a tragedy. My condolences to Keith’s family and the group. They are among the most original groups to come from England… ever. ”

On March 4th, Flint was discovered dead in his Essex home. The Prodigy frontman was 49 years old. Since his passing, many dancing music icons have also paid tribute to the big beat pioneer.

Elton John’s Rocket Hour airs Saturday, March 16th at noon EST on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Listen to it live here.
