Dolores O’Riordan dead: Cranberries singer dies suddenly aged 46

LONDON january 15, 2017– THE CRANBERRIES singer Dolores O’Riordan has passed away aged 46.The Irish musician was in London for a short recording session when she died suddenl.

Her publicist confirmed the sad news in a statement which read: “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.”

Dolores was best known for leading the rock band The Cranberries to worldwide success for thirteen years.

The chart-topping band consisted of Dolores, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler.

They rose to international fame in the 1990s and released five albums before taking a break in 2003, but soon reunited six years later.

Dolores was well known for her mezzo-soprano voice, Limerick accent and for yodelling.

In May 2016, Dolores announced she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder following an altercation on a transatlantic flight two years prior.

She avoided criminal conviction but was fined €6,000 (£4,690) for head-butting and spitting at a police officer following an alleged air rage incident.

And just last year, The Cranberries were forced to cancel their US and European tour dates due to Dolores citing back problems.

The Irish star had three children; Taylor Baxter, 20, Molly Leigh, 17, and Dakota Rain, 13, with ex-husband Don Burton.

Dolores tied the knot with the former tour manager of Duran Duran in 1994 but the pair split after 20-years of marriage in 2014.

Last year, the singer opened up about her love for her offspring and admitted the break from The Cranberries was the “best time” of her life.

“The best time in my life was the years spent at home with my family. I love being a mum. My kids don’t see me as a famous person, or have any kind of expectation; I’m just their mum,” she told Irish News.

But the successful musician did confess it hadn’t been an easy ride growing up in the public eye.

She continued: “There have been times when I’ve struggled. The death of my father and mother-in-law was very hard. (www.express.co.uk)
