Cranberries Singer Dolores O'Riordan Dies At 46

The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan dies aged 46

According to a statement from O'Riordan's publicist, "The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session".

When she wasn't performing rock anthems like "Zombie", "Linger" and "Dreams" before audiences of thousands, O'Riordan was often at her cottage north of Peterborough, Ont., about 90 minutes northeast of Toronto. She reportedly suffered a serious back injury last spring that required surgery, but was in London this month for a recording session.

"Our thoughts go out to her family at this awful time", they added.

No Need to Argue sold 17m copies, including 7m in the U.S., and cemented them as one of the biggest alternative acts of the 1990s - their overall album sales topped 40m.

Ms. O'Riordan joined guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler when she replaced departing frontman Niall Quinn in what was then called the Cranberry Saw Us.

A naturally reserved singer, O'Riordan often struggled with fame, leaving her native Ireland for several years to avoid the spotlight.




O'Riordan said depression "is one of the worst things to go through", but that "I've also had a lot of joy in my life, especially with my children". It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock.

Celebrities big and small - including James Corden, Josh Groban, Julia Michaels, etc. - have all paid tribute to the now deceased hitmaker.

She was known for her mezzo-soprano voice, yodeling and most of all, for her strong Limerick accent.

The song was written during The Cranberries' English Tour in 1993, in memory of two boys, Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, who were killed in an IRA bombing in Warrington, England in February 1993. "So sorry to hear that she's passed away today", he wrote. Our thoughts go out to her family at this bad time.

"Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family". "I started writing songs at the age of 12, in fact I never imagined anything else to do besides music".
