    Very sad news.......The band had to cancel their tour last year due to her back problems.

    46 is so damn young!

  • There has to be more to this.  

    It is awful to hear...

    Ridiculous thoughts is still my favorite song from them.

    RIP miss O'riordan
  • So very sad.  They had so many good singles and albums...Probably listen to Empty like 20 times today.

    she was diagnosed as bi polar last  year. she also had debilitating back issues. so it could be an offshoot of either one of those, or maybe not. i'm sure we'll know soon enough.

    So sad, I love her voice.
    I just wish a year could pass by without the loss of a piece of musical history.

    What a voice. Deaths like these make your teen years seem that much further away. 

    Was just blasting Salvation in the car on Saturday.

    This is all too true. Another talented musician lost too soon. I remember being at 6th Form college around 92-94 and Cranberries bringing out some great music. I forget where I saw them live, a festival most likely. So young. 
  • Saw them in 1995 - soundtracked a few high school breakups. RIP.

    Bummer.  Just saw this.  So young.  Rip.

    Fuck me, this is awful. One of my favorite bands. First 3 albums were great.

    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Spot on with your first two sentences.  

    Saw the cranberries back in 94/95 and thought they were incredible live. Rip
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    I didn't realize she was only 46.  Thought she was probably in her early 50's.  Started out young.  Had a mini crush on her back in the day.

    Ive never been a huge fan of female singers, I often find it hard to connect in the same way but Dolores had a voice like no other. A beautiful voice which would send shivers down my spine every time and the songs instantly transport me back to my teenage years in the 90s. Anyone else who was a teenager back then will know what I mean. The music you listened to as a teenager stays with you forever.
  • cp3iversoncp3iverson Posts: 4,867
    She could really use her voice like an instrument. I dont know a good way to describe it.  Sounded cool
  • Dr. DelightDr. Delight Posts: 11,112
    I still can't believe this. 
    I think she had 3 younger children too.
    What a loss.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt

    Never really got into The Cranberries but no doubt she had an iconic voice. May she rest well and may the music live on in the hearts and souls of her fans!

    Isn’t this the truth?! It’s like, god damn it, why are all my contemporaries dying? We’re not old enough for this shit yet.

    Spent the last couple of months rediscovering her music. When I saw her name pop up this afternoon I couldn't fucking believe it. Another one gone too soon.

    Zombie, memories of my childhood. That song was always on music video shows and radio back then. I don't know there music other than those that topped charts. But Zombie takes me back. May she R.I.P. too young so sad.
