That really sucks, RIP Keith :( The earlier Prodigy albums, especially Music for a Jilted Generation are definitely worth checking out.

So kill yourself at 49 or have a stroke and die at 52 anyway...
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Most people don't have strokes at 52 though, especially when they were in good shape like he was.

RIP Luke Perry

You can have a stroke at any age, especially a TIA (mini stroke). https://www.everydayhealth.com/news/thi ... ng-stroke/ They aren't as prevalent but can still occur sadly. 52 is way too young to pass away from a stroke though. But they can do considerable damage and sadly in Luke's case it was fatal.

Also suicide is a terrible thing. I don't know if Keith had mental health issues etc but 49 is no age to end your life. He was a massive part of the Prodigy and their earlier albums are a pioneering mix of punk/rave/dance/hip hop. Firestarter and Breathe both were #1 records here and I think the videos with Keith in played a huge part in that success too. A nice tribute article to Keith here

That's sad, Boyz N The Hood is an all time classic. Have a lot of the other movies John made on DVD too, RIP :(
