Dolores O'Riordan was 'full of life' hours before death

Dolores O'Riordan

Fans of the 90s rock band The Cranberries are mourning the loss of singer Dolores O'Riordan by streaming and downloading the band's music on services like Spotify, Apple, and Amazon.

Tributes have poured in across the world after the Irish songstress was found dead at a hotel in central London on Monday morning.

Her bandmates - Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawler - commented: "We are devastated on the passing of our friend Dolores".

The music by the Cranberries has seen a renewed spark of interest following the death of Dolores O'Riordan.

She shot to global fame, and today she's being remembered around the world by fans who flocked to one of Ireland's biggest ever musical experts.

Before O'Riordan passed away, she sent Waite a voice message after midnight, expressing her tremendous love and admiration for a cover version of the Cranberries' 1994 hit song "Zombie" by the band Bad Wolves.

Lennox was among the many from the worlds of film, television and music to pay tribute following O'Riordan's death aged 46, which police have said is not being treated as suspicious.

"No further details are available at this time", as quoted by BBC, adding that the family has requested for privacy as they go through this devastating time.

"Remember when she was at her height, this city was going through a terrible, awful time, we had a very bad name - "city" - she did away with all that".




The death is, at this stage, unexplained.

In O'Riordan's hometown of Limerick, where she and the Cranberries got their start, residents signed a book of condolences at city council.

Meanwhile, 36-year-old Athirah recalled that The Cranberries were one of many 90s band that she grew up with, especially during her teen rebellion days.

"She was very shy, very quiet, hadn't much confidence", she said.

48-year-old Nazirah shared with Malaysian Digest that she is "heartbroken" over the news, and opined that, "there will never be another singer with a voice like Dolores".

She hit the headlines in 2014 after pleading guilty to assaulting three police officers and a flight attendant during a flight from NY to Ireland, and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder shortly afterwards. "On tour it's, like: "'room-service", she said of the comeback. I can not believe she is gone. "My heart goes out to her children".

"She sounded full of life, was joking and excited to see me and my wife this week".
