Personal Quote:

When you first break into the music scene, everyone is so naive. I was only nineteen when I started happening with 'Charly' and I was so into the rave scene - apart from hip hop, I was blind to everything else. See more »

Trivia:

Starting Monday, March 20th The Prodigy kick off their 5 city tour in the North America and Canada. Cities include, in chronological tour date order; Chicago, Toronto (Canada), New York City, Washington, D.C., and Miami. See more »
