leaving the prodigy is the end of the prodigy. I know you all
hold of liams words. I heard them live to, and i can only say,
friends i think his words were a bit like he or him instead of
goes or wants...never forget , why would leeroy exit now, after
being quiet for almost two years
Prodigy is no longer prodigy, prodigy is more and more Liam and
music, what's good, the best i ever will hear and heard, but Maxim
something different , leeroy doin something different....
If liams is real he has to admid, prodigy has ended..it's like
what ever, you have a ball, racket, net and a player. Liam is
maxim the net, keith the racket and leeroy the ball. The ball
is gone of
course it won't have any influence on the seperat parts , the
won't change, the racket is the same and the player stil lhas
skills.. but be honust without the ball the game is dull.
Change the name, make something new, with Keith,Maxim and with
liam... but don't call it prodigy, because prodigy died on april
Exit prodigy, the best group ever!!!"
Anynomous from Holland by e-mail
weeks without the internet and i discovered Leeroy has left the
band. Music-wise, it's alright but i have yet to see the most
awesome live band in the world, PRODIGY!!!! aaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggghhhh.........
why why why why????? why can't Liam let Leeroy into the songwriting?
that fucking egoistic selfish bastard!"
sent in by David Corcoran:
Leroy left the band, I did this pic for your site. Just
it up and maybe people will get the message."
hell, I wasn't expecting that!
Still, we can be thankful to have witnessed the original line
up on many
happy occasions..its not over yet, not by a long shot!
What do you think the chances of Leeroy joining them onstage in
reunion type thing in a couple of years, after a break apart?
is a permanent arrangement but you know the prodigy, they like
didn't see that coming at all...."
Cooper by e-mail
shit! I almost cry when I heard it,,(or to be honest I did!!)
Leeroy,,our little man is going to leave us?!! What went wrong,,?
Why does it have to end this way? And what will happend now? There
are lot of questions going around my head right now!!"
fot the exclusive leeroy news neko but i think
the prodigy have now lost a lot from there live show
now as leeroy was a very good entertainer and a brill
dancer anyway the prodigy still r the best as long as
the rest of the band stay together."
Hartle by e-mail
literally cried when i read that. I cant believe it.
If your part
of a team for 9 years, you shouldnt quit to follow a solo career,
may not get off the ground or not. Dont get me wrong, I
he is my favourite prodigy man, but i cant believe he would quit
Maybe there is more to it than just following a solo career, maybe
and the rest of the band have had a huge argument. Who knows,
know is that, my favourite member has left the prodigy, and this
the saddest moment of my life"
Leeroy has left is there much point carrying on?......I mean from
how I see it Liam is the one with the motivation, the one with
to be good again why can't the others share that?. You got Maxim
busy doing his thing, fair enough ,you got keith to busy hang
showbiz pals and getting more mentions in the Bizzare section
of the Sun
than music press.
We all know prodigy can't carry on as a trio, its just not going
the same......and the way things are going things might not turn
aright, its a bleak future Maxim might decide to quit or the new
might not be that good.
To get to the point I'm saying in 20 years time I want to remember
prodigy when they were in 1994, 95, 96 and 97 they were the good
not how they are now.....its a mess.......so if they quit now
dignity will be saved. I know a lot of you who are reading this
think I've lost the plot but believe me it sad case of affairs
don't want prodigy petering out into nothing."
The Law in alt.music.prodigy-the
leaving the group and the possible split!!....not the
kind of news ive exspected!!....couse i think Prodigy has lost
importain member, the live-show has totally colapsed!!"
Soren Sloth from Denmark by e-mail
is very sad and no matter what anyone says, he WILL be missed.
Leeroy in my opinion is a great dancer, and also a vital part
of the live show. I just hope it doesn't lead to The Prodigy splitting."
am so upset to read about Leeroys departure, I have wanted
to see this
band so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED to see them!!!
You have no idea
how their music motivates me and makes me jump up and down."
from New York by e-mail
really think its sad that Leeroys going to quit. The first time
Prodigy(Hultsfred -97)I was extremely impressed by his dance!
When I saw them last summer at Rockwave I definetely didnt think
be the last time I saw them all together... I cant help wondering
live-performances will turn out now. But however, Im happy as
long as they
dont split totally!
I heard about the split on the radio. The energy.musicnews message
Leeroy was going to quit cause of some problems within the group..."
Anna by e-mail
seems to forget that the band could always get back together with
Leeory. I assume that the main reason Leeroy left was because
of his solo
stuff. If that doesn't succeed, I think it is highly possible
that he could
However, we may never know the whole story about why Leeroy
left. Perhaps the
band and him had some sort of major argument, and am just using
solo work" bit as an excuse."
Rob de Ford in alt.music.prodigy-the
was very shocked by the news of Leeroy quiting the group.. Of
course I can
understand that he wants to start with his own music again, but
this is a
great lost for the band. Not for the music, but certainly for
shows. I've never been to one so I can't really say how he was
stage, but I've seen loads of videofootage and I know that Leeroy
is a great
dancer and he really creates a great vibe during the shows...
No we will have to do without him, But I'm worried that other
Maxim is also busy with his solocarrier.. Maybe after this decision
Leeroy, Maxim could also think of quiting and go futher as solo..
Maxim woudn't like it anymore if Leeroy left.. Who knows??
I really hope this won't happen, Maxim is most important member
of the group
afther Liam. But maybe that after Leeroy quiting the "spirit"
or "energy" to
go on will disappear... Who knows??"
Robert Van Buuren
sending you a very rare picture of Leeroy i got from a Spanish
magazine. I hope you'll put it somewhere on your site."
what do you believe more? That the Prodigy are finished, or that
move on without Leeroy? I, myself, believe they will move on.
You know Liam:
he can never be defeated by anyone or anything. He should be trying
off his lazy ass and do something. I've spoke with many people
the same thing. As for Leeroy, I am highly disappointed in him.
that everyone has their own free will to do what they most love,
he be just a little caring and think about the fans? He should've
about his past. Without Prodigy, who we he be today? Most likely
no one that
special. Besides, I think he was just getting bored with the whole
kept hinting around that idea. However, I have a feeling he will
be quite sad
seeing Prodigy doing new, live shows without him. There will be
inside, empty and hallow. I just hope this doesn't have anything
to do with
that Sarah Cox girl... Maybe she brainwashed him? Crazy idea,
I know. Well,
all I can do now is pray that they don't split up. I'd be in a
deep state of
depression. Prodigy was the one true band who got me out of my
boyband stage years ago. Their music led me to a whole new way
of living, and
I'm actually happy with it. I love partying nowadays, I'm open
to all kinds
of beats and sounds, I love heavy music, and I owe it all to them.
just decide to end it, not only will I be highly disappointed,
but many, many
other fans out there as well. I have never seen a live show in
now it's going to be quite different if I do ever get to see one.
But I could
deal with that. The other three can still carry out the Prodigy
vibe, I have
no doubt on that. They are a good band, and they always will be.
hope that they realize what they're all about and stick together.
That was my two cents."

Prodigy goes on, no matter if you believe it or not!
The Prodigy is changing, no matter if you will follow them or
So Leeroy left the Prodigy a week ago. And since we must have
guilty for his decision we can blame guess whom? The master mind
band of course!!! Many fans are now supposing that the (fuckin'
selfish bastard Liam' as pointed by a (fan has thrown away the
useless dancer that we all loved so much! I'm really confused
It's not that I won't miss Leeroy- I've seen him live, I loved
performance, I even have his autograph and my picture with him!
it seems that he doesn't feel it is right to be a part of the
anymore. As Liam said- if you respect him you must also respect
I think it was more that obvious that since the (Experience
Leeroy was getting less and less essential for the band. Don't
to argue, be realistic and realize things. The Prodigy changed
since 1991 to nowadays, their music is always on the search for
sound, and their attitude and style are also totally different.
and Keith were those rave guys who used to dance with smiles on
faces. Haven't you seen the videos from Experience??? The next
Music for the Jilted Generation was very different, the style
same, neither were the guys+except the good old Leeroy who kept
kinda funny, kinda genius dancing moves. But I am ready to bet
one have expected the change which came with the follow-up single
Firestarter. Absolutely different sound, dressing style and+ A
FACE IN THE BAND!!! You all know what I'm talking about. That
mohican Keith that appeared almost alone in the video for the
dancing with manic moves in that tube, looking really, really
and (could you believe?)- SINGING!!! Yes, he wasnt the same guy
before, he became the (image of the band, he had a new skill!
single and video Breathe, which showed Maxim also ready to make
change was featuring Leeroy's face at least a few times like in
Firestarter. The Prodigy became no doubt, the biggest band in
world! Well be honest now- YOU ALL LIKED THE NEW STYLE AND IMAGE
BAND AT THAT TIME, HAVEN'T YOU??? AND YOU ALL BELIEVED LIAM WHO
REINVENTED THAT BAND, HAVEN'T YOU??? Unfortunately (or maybe not)
was always the same rave guy which was just present in the new
which created the new image. The album The Fat of the Land and
following single Smack my Bitch Up just confirmed the new musical
of the Prodigy. The field for Leeroy in the live shows was also
than before. The most powerful live tracks were featuring Maxim
Keith on stage. After 2 silent years the band came with one new
track- We do What the Fuck We Want which was a step further after
Fat of the Land. It also included both of them performing.
Now, after four years of touring with the FOTL tracks, the Prodigy
desperately needs some fresh material. I believe that after progressing
for nine years as a music maker, Liam is making different and
stuff for the fourth album. We have already the title Always Outnumbered
Never Outgunned, which can let us guess that there will not be
turn-back to the old sound. I believe that Leeroy felt by him
he will not fit as a member for the next album of the band, or
liked the new orientation of Liam's music, as he did back in 1991
the Prodigy was formed. Leeroy is already making his own music
so different from what is Liam into and his taste, orientation
opinion are not necessarily the same as Liam's. If that is the
you expect Leeroy to stay in the band? Or maybe start making the
of the Prodigy? Would you like it then? We loved the music that
for all these nine years, we loved the way he changed it and leaded
to a very different field. Maybe this time one of the necessary
must be in the band. I will definitely keep believing that Liam
to reinvent the Prodigy and that Leeroy's departure is for the
and his own good. At least until the new album is out and it's
the live shows are boring (which I strongly doubt). I respect
every single minute spent as a dancer in the Prodigy, I respect
him as a
musician and I respect his decision. Maybe it is time for him
to make a
huge progress from a dancer to a music maker and even a singer
Flightcrank. I sincerely wish him all that. As for the Prodigy-
Prodigy goes on, no matter if you believe it or not, the Prodigy
changing, no matter if you will follow them or not!"
