Sir Elton John shared some kind words for Keith Flint in the preview 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 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.”
