A Moment of Silence For The Cranberries

sad inside out GIF

I was sad to hear that the lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan of one of my favorite bands of all time, The Cranberries, has passed away on January 15, 2018.

Dolores O'Riordan, 46, lead singer of the Cranberries - The Boston Globe

The Cranberries were considered an Alternative Grunge Rock Bank.  Dolores had a captivating voice, that drew you in.  The band formed in 1989 and broke up in 2003, only to get back together in 2009.  They were discussing a new album and up to a couple of days from her death, she was talking about new songs for that album with band mates.

Cranberries!! Nice style and photo

She was born in a small town in Ireland.  She had some issues in her childhood and music became her outlet.  Even as a child she blew people away with her amazing voice.  She was a shy performer and often performed with her back to the audience.

She was one of those honest performers.  What you see is what you got.  Even when she had issues she had to deal with, she would not hide herself.  She expressed herself through her music.

She married in the summer of 1994 and had three children from that marriage.  But divorced in 2014.

Her death was very unexpected.  It is said that she was in a great place before her untimely death.  Cause of death has not been released at this time.  Just know that this is a sad time for her friends, family and children that she has left behind.

Here band mates release this statement on Twitter

The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan Died on Monday, January 15 of Fentanyl poisoning in London.

My favorite songs of The Cranberries are:

  • Zombie  ♥♥♥
  • Salvation
  • Dreams
  • Linger
  • When Your Gone

Just recently a band called Bad Wolves just released a cover of the song Zombie.  Delores loved the remake and was in London preparing to record vocals with lead singer, Tommy Vext before releasing it.  They were not sure if she would just add to the vocals or re-record with Tommy and band.  Surprised by her death the band released the song in hopes that it will serve as a tribute to the singer.

Today as I was listening to my XM radio Octane with Jose’ Mangin and he was playing cover songs.  He introduced Bad Wolves Zombie and made the statement that the band released a statement that all proceeds from the song Zombie by Bad Wolves will be donated to Dolores O’Riordan’s children.  WOW!!!  That is awesome and very caring.  So if  you like the song, buy it!  It is for a good cause.

  1. Such a great loss to the music world. I listened to the Cranberries over and over again. Never tired of them. Her voice was so beautiful. I was looking forward to them getting back together again. 😢
