The Prodigy Minder Con Murphy Has Died Weeks After Keith Flint's Death
The Prodigy's minder, Con Murphy, has died following a long battle with cancer just weeks after the death of singer Keith Flint.
The band paid tribute to the 'greatest loyal friend' on Instagram.
The post read: "R.i.P Con. You always had our backs and looked after us for years, you got us out of many sticky situations on tour, you were a truly great man, in fact you were actually Superman - the people that knew you will understand what I'm sayin.... Above all you were the greatest loyal friend to us all man...
"We will truly miss you and never forget you brother x
"Our love goes out to Jayne and family x
"The Prodigy boys x"
Con's wife, Jayne, and daughter, Charlee, were by his side as he passed away at the Thames Hospice in Windsor.
His daughter Jayne said: "In the early hours of this morning, my dad took his final breaths, peacefully bringing to an end his long fight with cancer - a battle he fought with the bravest determination and the utmost stoicism.
"Up until and including his final moments, he was surrounded by the incredible friends and family that he was so proud to say he knew and loved. I'll miss him so so much. Our beloved husband, dad, son, brother, friend and warrior."
The news comes around five weeks on from the death of the band's frontman, Keith Flint, who was found dead at his home in Essex, aged 49.
Keith performed vocals on The Prodigy's number one singles 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe' which were released in 1996.
After emerging in the early 90s, The Prodigy quickly became one of the UK's biggest bands and were known as the 'Godfathers of the Rave'.
In recent years Flint had success as a motorcycle racing team owner and manager. His team won three Isle of Man TT races in 2015 and competed in the British Supersport Championship.
