Ashame. Only 46. Really hope this isn't drugs too but the stories seem to hint at it a bit.

Shitty news but not shocking or much of a surprise. A shame.

Great voice.. pretty generic band, she set them apart but didn’t offer much bar their narrow window & even that wasn’t great imo tho they left a couple of lasting singles. Sad story, shite music. Shame for her as she had talent.
Easy to pigeonhole as post-sinead (& post U2, but U2 were truly always & forever godfucking awful, a true national embarrassment that few countries can match), but Dolores had a great voice all her own & deserved a better life. Sad, but so it goes for damaged souls. We do so little for our victims except trample over them & ridicule them instead of cherishing their stories & talents. A(nother) shameful day for Ireland.


I don’t want it to seem like I’m a cranberries fan, I absolutely wasn’t & thought they were near cheap trash as artists. But she had a great voice & more than that needed & deserved as much protection & love as anyone else. We didn’t look after her like we should’ve, no excuses justify this ending for her. Reminds me kind of an Irish Janis..

Their record label definitely misguided & manipulated them. Obv the band & Delores share some responsibility for that. But chasing international success i.e. the American-Irish market instead of their own ambitions & artistic goals set her & them on a road to ruin. Maybe she was destined for this outcome no matter what, but as a band they were instantly infected by greed & nonsense & located no real integrity or honesty until their moment had long passed.

Yeah, they were good. In their own way, a bit mainstream but can't knock them for it. The Sundays were great, a bit more legit imho. Their cover of Wild Horses was an all time cover. Still, The Cranberries were great in their own right & a good band.

I'll never forget how they blew the world's mind with Zombie in 94. A total WTF moment. The world had just been overexposed with Dreams and Linger and out of the blue, here comes a song like THAT.

I don't know the ins and outs of the band. It was their last mega hit and they deserved a bigger run than that.
