rip far to young
The Cranberries first album really has a strong memory for me. Me in my bedroom with my Amiga A1200 and joss sticks burning, either battling with Sensible Soccer or working on the ever crashing DTP Pagestream software. Funnily enough, I thought of the album only yesterday and was going to play it later. It was a cracking debut.
This makes for a very sad read:

This. I knew nothing about her bar her beautiful voice until I found the article editor just posted earlier.
Delores O'Riordan has died in London, aged 46
I loved her wonderful voice. That is just so sad.
Never my cup of tea back in the 90s but listening back she had a beautiful haunting voice. May she RIP & thoughts to her family & loved ones.
And with hindsight what a lovely song.
RIP Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, aged 46
Sorry, already a thread, and i put it in wrong forum.
Was just about to post that myself. Love that song.
Was also a big fan of ‘Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We’ and of course ‘Zombie’ one of THE tunes of the 90s, hands down. RIP Dolores.
She was great, immense talent and brilliant vocalist. RIP
Zombie was a classic in my book. So sad, for her and all her family.
Can't believe it. Although they band was never considered essential by the music press (and they really went to town on "Zombie") there's no denying that powerful voice. Very sad news.
Blimey. I never realised the video was so popular. It's great though.
Oddy enough, "Zombie" seemed to be a covers band favourite when we were in Bali.
where I was listening to the Cranberries too only minus the joss sticks but playing sensible soccer or kick off and using Amiga Deluxe Paint great memories of the first album too and continued following her
So very sad was always a very open person and I have a lot of respect for her for that and speaking out as well on lots of issues same as Sinead probably got them both into problems and pressures that have affected their health
Rest in peace Dolo....
Oh how sad, I loved Zombie back in the day - especially the Adam featuring Amy remix, a real 90's dance anthem.
Wow. I didn't know any of this. What a troubled soul. RIP.
RIP. Really sad news. She had a wonderful, and so distinctive voice. RIP
likewise, i didn't know that - i met her many years ago when the band were just starting and they played a gig in Tamworth, which she was not happy about to put it mildly (can't really blame her, there was only about ten people there.) sorry to hear of her passing anyway, RIP.
How sad. I loved The Cranberries back in the 90's. Hadn't heard the news this morning but kept hearing Cranberries songs on all the radio stations & didn't know why
Sad to read this. RIP.
Used to like singing that Zombie when driving, full volume.
What a talent. Way too young. Unique vocal style copied by many. Nearly named our daughter Dolores.
So in this early Irish version she was just 18 and someone said the guitarist was just 17 they all must have gone into the music business straight from school and then pretty much full on
love this version of dreams anyway
Not being treated as suspicious
Dolores O'Riordan death not suspicious
Likewise. Really, really didn’t like them back in the 90s but can see now that she was talented and probably, from reading reports anyway, a very cool person. Sad news anyway, I understand she had kids.
