ugg boots london Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan dead at 46
“No further details are available at this time,” the statement reads. “Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
Dolores shot to fame in the early 1990s in The Cranberries after she auditioned to replace the band’s lead singer.
The Limerick group went on to sell over 40 million records worldwide, becoming one of the globe’s biggest bands at the height of its fame.
The Cranberries’ hits included the songs “Zombie,” “Linger” and “Dreams.” O’Riordan also released two solo albums during a band hiatus, before reforming the group in 2009.
The singer’s ongoing back issues forced her to cancel shows last year, following the release of the band’s most recent album, “Something Else,” which featured acoustic versions of their hits recorded with the Irish Chamber Orchestra’s string quartet.
