Personal possessions belonging to the late Keith Flint will be sold at auction tonight at Cheffins in Cambridge. His personal possessions have been split into 169 lots, before being sold under the hammer starting at 6pm. Items set for the sale include a nose piercing, a custom made bed and motorcycle leathers.
Further items included in the auction include a collection of recordings and artwork relating to Flint’s solo work under the name Flint and Clever Brains Fryin’.
Of the auction, Martin Millard of Cheffins spoke to NME and said. “We’ve had a huge amount of interest since we released details of the sales my emails and phone haven’t really stopped. Interest has come from all over the world. We’ve had a steady stream of people through the doors since the previews. We opened on Sunday for the first session viewing and we’ve been open every day since.”
The presentation discs Keith Flint received as part of The Prodigy are on the wall. The room for the Keith Flint Collection is shaping up ahead of the first viewing day on Sunday (10.00am to 2.00pm). The full catalogue for the sale is on our website. https://t.co/xi9k8fTZrv pic.twitter.com/L2ybkZJ5y5

A selection of personalised number plates are also part of the Keith Flint Collection… Can you spot a theme among them?

Millard continued, “We were appointed by the solicitor who is handling the estate and the sale really covers the full gammit of Keith’s life. It’s the personal effects removed from his home and it includes such personal things as his clothing, his sunglasses, through to more sort of publicly seen elements of his music career – music awards, gold disks and then as well there’s also things like his motorcycling leathers and helmet, representing another aspect of his life.”
Keith Flint was found dead at his home in Essex on March 4 this year at the age of only 49.
The two surviving members of The Prodigy, Liam Howellet and Maxim Reality marked what would have been Keith’s 50th birthday in September. They celebrated the day with a post through Twitter, paying tribute. In the post they wrote, “Happy birthday Flinty, not a single day passes u aren’t in our thoughts, we miss you brother, raise the roof wherever u are muthafukka !, L & M ….”
