Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan dead at 46

"I am not going to live that long".

"I was chuffed to see inside the place".

Police had initially treated Dolores' death as "unexplained" but have since said it was "non-suspicious".

But the strain on O'Riordan, who was so shy that she performed with her back to the audience during some early concerts, was also becoming clear, with the band cutting short a tour in 1996 citing exhaustion and disillusionment.

In 2013, she revealed to LIFE Magazine that someone very close to her had sexually abused her as a young child. "I thought she was probably a bit exhausted after the flight or something". "It gets hard as well when you have daughters because you get flashbacks when you're with them and when you are watching them".

She was part of the creative production for all five hit albums, and wrote nearly all of the band's biggest hits like "Zombie", "Linger", "Animal Instinct", and "Dreams". "Dolores said she believed some of her emotional problems emanated from being abused as a child".

In an interview with her friend, journalist Barry Egan, O'Riordan opened up about her battles with depression and her attempt to take her own life in 2013.

A post-mortem is scheduled for Thursday. Following the post-mortem, it is expected that O'Riordan's body will be released to her family. "The world has lost a true artist".

O'Riordan, the 46-year-old lead singer of The Cranberries, was found dead around 9 a.m. Monday inside a hotel room on Park Lane.

The opening crash of the Cranberries' 1993 song "Dreams" has a transporting effect for me, back to school corridors, back to ink drawings on canvas backpacks, back to the clunk between songs on mix tapes recorded from the radio.

Waite expressed his condolences to her family.

Her three bandmates said in a tweet that they were devastated at the passing of an "extraordinary talent". Fans and musicians phoned in to talk about what the band and Ms. O'Riordan meant to them.

A Spotify spokesperson told Fortune that, since news broke of O'Riordan's passing, streams of The Cranberries' catalogue jumped by a whopping 992%.

Irish rockers Kodaline, pop singer Maggie Rogers, Jim Corr of Irish pop group the Corrs, Duran Duran, whose tour manager was married to O'Riordan have all shared their deep sadness, as reported by The Guardian.
