One of his neighbor's friends Jane Addison disclosed the singer's behavior and nature:

"I don't know how many dogs he had, maybe eight-ish dogs, and he'd go round the fields on his quad, and when he wanted them to come back to him he'd shout 'eggs and bacon'"

He added:

"He had lots of birds, canaries... in an aviary. He was friendly, very nice. Always raised a hand and said hello."

Keith's bandmates Liam Howlett and Leeroy Thornhill were in huge trauma after the news.

Keith's bandmates shared a condolence statement among their fans from their official band page writing:

"The news is true, I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend,"

"I’m shell shocked, f**kin angry, confused and heart broken ..... r.i.p brother Liam #theprodigy"

According to the bandmates, Flint always exposed about his drug use and ongoing depression. He always hinted about suicide, as in interview by FHM in 2015,

Keith said:

"I’m not saving up for anything. I’m cashing it all now.

"I’ve always had this thing inside me that, when I’m done, I’ll kill myself.

"I just want to look back and know that I’ve lived what I consider a fulfilled life."

Followingly on an interview with The Times, the singer talks about his drug addiction and depression.

The 'Firestarter' singer revealed:

"I got bang into coke, weed, drinking a lot. This made me reclusive, boring and shallow.

He added:

"I'd line up rows of pills and just take them and take them and I'd lose track of how many until I passed out.

The singer further revealed his planned suicide attempt:

"But you need a lot of balls to kill yourself. I was a coward."

The death of the singer Keith has been clearly declared as a suicide with no suspicion for the incident. The band has planned to perform a tribute in the memory of their beloved singer. All the fans and admirers were very sad after the news was shared on their official fan page.
