I'm afraid I don't know the band at all, or any of their songs, but she was young, so I'm sorry about that.

We were just listening to her the other night. She often comes out when I’ve had a couple of whiskeys.

My favourite:

Not really my kind of music, but was reading something someone else wrote and it appears she was not into drugs, which is the first thing a lot of folks (myself included) think about when a musician dies suddenly at this age. Of course the second is suicide. Hopefully that wasn't the case, because she had kids. I'm no expert, but I think that affects the kids far worse than if their mom dies of an aneurism or something like that.

She was bipolar and they recently cancelled some tour dates because of her health.

Who knows how or why. It’s just so sad regardless.

Yeah I just read somewhere that she apparently went a little nuts a few years ago after splitting up with her husband of 20 years. She cancelled her tour dates last year due to “back problems”.
Dying suddenly at her young age seems awfully odd. I’m wondering if she perhaps mixed some meds without realising the implications.

I thought along the same lines.

Yes it was an air rage incident due to her bipolar illness. She struggled with it for years sadly.

She's been an alcoholic and I don't doubt taken a shedful of recreationals. The problem with that kind of lifestyle is it catches up with you.

I hadn’t heard about the alcohol. Sadly yes it does catch up.

On January 15th, 2018, we lost a voice we will not soon forget. To pay tribute to The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, Choir! Choir! Choir! gathered hundreds of people to sing "Linger."
