Dolores O'Riordan, Lead Singer of The Cranberries, Dead at 46

The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan seen in Toronto in 2009 has died suddenly at 46

The cause of death was unclear.

She had been in London for recording sessions. They went on to release a number of hit singles, including "Zombie" and Linger', and sold over 40 million records worldwide. Like so many performers who are more at home on the stage than in their everyday environment, she seemed to be wracked with insecurity.

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

We are at EmptyLighthouse Magazine are saddened by the news of Dolores O'Riordan's death. Later that year, she revealed she had also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

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. Feeling good! I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in NY with the house band.

To my surprise, the fierce rock queen I expected to meet when I nervously entered her dressing room was literally shaking with nerves herself. To be honest, I've never imagined doing anything else.

But lower courts, without ruling on the merits of the law, said those suing could not show that they would be harmed by it. We want to hear from anyone who experiences discrimination in marriage, health care, or any other context.

The singer released two solo albums during the bands hiatus, Are You Listening?

The Cranberries eventually reunited in 2009. She was suffering at the time from what the judge in her case described as "very severe mental illness" and was fined 6,000 euros.

Most recently, The Cranberries released the album Something Else in 2017, a collection of stripped-down versions of previously-released tracks.

A police spokesman said, 'A woman in her mid-40s was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dolores is survived by her three children Taylor, Dakota and Molly whom she had with her ex-husband of 20 years, Don Burton, former tour manager for Duran Duran.
