Delores O’Riordan, Lead Singer Of The Cranberries, Dead At 46
Delores O’Riordan, lead singer of Irish group The Cranberries, has been found dead in a London hotel at age 46. While no cause of death has been announced yet, TMZ reports that the ’90s icon was suffering from bipolar disorder and had previously tried to commit suicide in 2013. She was in the UK for a recording session, having reunited the band last year after an extended hiatus. They released an album called Something Else, their 7th, which cracked the UK top 20 and produced the single “Why.”
While The Cranberries remained active in fits and spurts, they are best remembered for soundtracking the ’90s with hits like “Linger” (their only US top 10), “Dreams,” “Zombie,” “Ode To My Family” and “Salvation.” Starting with 1993’s Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? and ending with 1999’s Bury The Hatchet, Delores & Co. released four consecutive top 20 albums. 1994’s No need To Argue remains their most successful, going seven-times platinum.
