Cranberries Singer Dolores O'Riordan Dead At 46

Cranberries lead singer dies at 46

In 2017, the group cancelled their European and U.S. tours due to illness after Dolores cited back issues.

She may have been taking opioids primarily used for pain relief to control the problem.

O'Riordan announced she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in May 2017.

O'Riordan launched a solo career after the band split for the first time in 2003.

"We worked together for 13 years and never once did she say anything (about) who would like the song we were doing or the demographics it would attract - it was all about it being right, the way she wanted it to be".

Police in London were called to a hotel at Park Lane in Westminster at 9.05am this morning and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

There was widespread shock in Dolores O'Riordan's native Limerick following the announcement of her untimely death.

The band's publicist confirmed O'Riordan's death in a brief statement, "Irish and global singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today".

According to a statement from her publicist, O'Riordan was in London for a short recording session, reports BBC.

(1993), No Need to Argue (1994), To the Faithful Departed (1996), Bury the Hatchet(1999), and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee (2001). It included singles "Zombie", "I Can't Be With You" and "Ode To My Family".

The Cranberries were one of the most successful bands of the 1990's, selling over 40 million albums.

This was her first tweet since January of past year - when she retweeted a message from the band D.A.R.K. - of which she was also lead singer. They have three children, Taylor, 20, Molly, 16, and Dakota, 12.

She performed at two of the Vatican's annual Christmas concerts for John Paul II, and also at Pope Benedict XVI's first Christmas concert after his ascension in 2005.
