Cranberries Lead Singer Dead at 46

Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan died suddenly on Monday (January 15th) in a London hotel at the age of 46, according to the Associated Press. O’Riordan was in London for a short recording session and at press time the cause of her death was not immediately announced. O’Riordan’s publicist said in a statement, “Family members are devastated to hear the news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.” According to Variety, Metropolitan Police in London confirmed that “a woman in her mid-40s was pronounced dead at the scene,” adding, “At this early stage the death is being treated as unexplained.” O’Riordan, who was born in Limerick, Ireland, joined the Cranberries in 1990 after original vocalist Niall Quinn quit. The group signed with Island Records in 1992 and released its debut disc, Everyone Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? the following year. The LP reached Number One on the U.K. and Irish album charts, while climbing to Number 18 on the Billboard 200 chart in the U.S. The set spawned two hit singles in “Linger” and “Dreams.” The band released its sophomore album, No Need To Argue, in 1994 and topped the Alternative chart with the track “Zombie,” which became their biggest hit.
