    I'm devastated over this sad news. Will probably listen to the cranberries now for days on end.

    either that or accidental. THIS IS SPECULATION: given her back problems and also bipolarity, she may have been on a variety of meds. I know of an canadian artist (Matt Good) who accidentally took too many of his pills for his bipolarity and ended up almost dead and in the hospital for a while. he wrote an album about it, called "Hospital Music".

    Don't want to hijack the thread, but +1 for "Hospital Music". Stellar album.

    Regardless of the cause of death, I hope Dolores has found peace.

  • The music still sounds as good as it did back then. I wouldn't be surprised if Bipolar was the culprit. Many of the suicides I've seen in practice happen during the 'low'. Regardless, RIP. So sad.

    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.

    In my mind, the Avett Brothers could pay homage to a lot of the fallen singers in the same way Cornell did. Just a thought.

    Definitely.  This performance gave me a new found appreciation for the song,  I got goosebumps when they hit the chorus.  I thought their version of Black Hole Sun was by far the best Cornell tribute too.

    so it now seems it was accidental. drank a bunch, took some pills and took a bath. passed out and drowned. fuck.

  • Bipolarity? Sorry, Hugh, that's one of the funniest made up words I've seen in awhile.
