Dolores O'Riordan, best known as the lead singer of The Cranberries ("Linger," "Zombie," "Dreams," "Ode to My Family"), died suddenly in London overnight. She was 46.
Recently playing with a band called D.A.R.K., she was in London recording and passed away in her hotel room. O'Riordan was born in Limerick, Ireland and was known for her lovely voice - as Irish as they come in alternative and pop music.
The Cranberries released a new album last year but cancelled tour dates due to health issues O'Riordan reportedly had. The cause of her death is under investigation, although foul play is not suspected. More this story here.
