R.I.P Dolores O'Riordan (The Cranberries)
It's only week 3 of 2018, and the hits keep coming.

Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band the Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time.

Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.

O'Riordan's distinctive, lilting voice led the Cranberries to international fame in the '90s, thanks to hits like 'Linger,' 'Dreams' and 'Zombie.' They sold over 40 million records worldwide before taking a hiatus in 2003. In 2009, they re-formed and released the album 'Roses' in 2012.

Last April, the band released an acoustic album that featured orchestral arrangements of their previous hits, as well as a few new songs. A 2017 tour of Europe and the U.S. was canceled due to O'Riordan's health issues. Also in 2017, she announced that she'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

O'Riordan released two solo albums: 2007's 'Are You Listening?' and 2009's 'No Baggage.'
Very sad. I have her first solo album that Steve DeMarchi told me to check out as he played guitar on it. Steve played in Dolores' solo band as well as with the Cranberries after Alias had first split. It's a good album.
Good band although for many her voice was an acquired taste. Personally, I owned a couple of their albums back in the day and enjoyed them quite a bit at the time. Very sad news and so young. RIP.
I have never been a fan of the band nor I liked her voice (rather the opposite) nevetheless it's sad to lose people so young. May she R.I.P.
