Today we mourn the loss of Luke Perry and The Prodigy singer Keith Flint.

Luke Perry of Beverly Hills, 90210 and Riverdale fame has died at 52, his publicist has confirmed.

The actor suffered a massive stroke last week and had been hospitalised since.

The star was surrounded by his family when he died at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, California.

“(Perry) was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancee Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends,” his rep said in a statement to Variety.

“The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time.”

We also mark the passing of The Prodigy singer Keith Flint who sadly took his own life aged 49.

Keith Flint, the fiery frontman of British dance-electronic band The Prodigy, has been found dead at his home near London, the band said.

The Prodigy co-founder Liam Howlett wrote on Instagram that Flint had taken his own life, saying: “I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life … I’m shell shocked, f****in angry, confused and heart broken.”

Police confirmed that the body of a 49-year-old man had been found at a home in Brook Hill, north-east of London.

They said the death was being treated as non-suspicious and a file would be sent to the coroner — standard practice in cases of violent or unexplained deaths.

Their 90s hits included Firestarter and Breathe.

    I was surprised though by the passing of the Prodigy singer, another talented muso taken to early – may he be at rest from his demons :(

  • This is extra scary for me, I have a mystery blood clotting disorder and so far “lucky” enough to only have had massive clots in my lungs, pelvis arms and legs, so far my heart and brain have been safe and I am a fair bit younger than he is, last time I ended up in hospital after falling out of my front door, who would have thought a grazed knee could almost kill me

  • He was only 52, so young. I never got into 90210 so he was never a big part of my life. I wonder what other influences bought on his stroke so young???
