Lead singer of the iconic 90's alternative rock band The Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan has passed away at the age of 46. Authorities say she "died suddenly" in London on Monday.
O'Riordan had been in London for a recording session with The Cranberries, which happened earlier on Monday. Details about how she died have not been revealed yet. Last year, The Cranberries had to cancel shows due to O'Riordan having severe back issues (allegedly due to a slipped disk), though no reported complications came from that.
The Cranberries became one of Ireland's keystone bands, cementing its place in the music world alongside giants like U2 and really helped put the country on the map. O'Riordan's voice helped bring some of the band's biggest hits like 'Zombie' and 'Linger' to life, and with such character that no one could compare.
The Cranberries released an official statement revealing that no further details are available. Dolores O'Riordan was a beautiful soul with a beautiful voice, and her impact will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.
