Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries dies, aged 46
The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan has died, aged 46.
The Irish frontwoman who wrote smash hits Zombie and Linger died at a Park Lane hotel in London yesterday (Monday January 15) and the cause of death is currently unknown.
Her publicist released a statement, saying: "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."
Adding: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time."
The band sold over 40 million records since starting in 1989 with their debut album Everybody Else is Doing it, Why Can't We?
The singer suffered from back issues in 2017, leading to the cancellation of a tour.
Irish rock band Kodaline were quick to pay their respects on Twitter: "Absolutely shocked to hear about the passing of Dolores O'Riordan! @The_Cranberries gave us our first big support when we toured with them around France years ago!
"Thoughts are with her family and friends."
Friends and family have requested privacy.
