Heartbreaking news to report today that the leader singer of the Irish alternative rock band called The Cranberries just passed away suddenly today. Her name was Dolores O’Riordan. The Cranberries were an Irish alternative rock band who were big hit makers… they made songs that we all know and love. If you grew up through the 90’s like I did then you probably heard songs like “Dreams”, “Linger”, “Ode To My Family”, “Zombie” and others. MTV were obsessed with their videos and the FM radio stations all over the country were obsessed with their hits during the 90’s.
I used to be a big fan of them when I was in high school. Used to own their first two albums but don’t own them anymore, though. I used to listen to them a lot when I was a teenager. I got into the band ’cause like everyone else it was Dolores’s phenomenal voice that drew me into them. She did have a unique singing voice and she could play the guitar.
Already it’s a sad start for the new year in 2018. This is why you should support your music artists and give them as much love as possible ’cause you never know how long they’ll stay with us.
RIP Delores and thanks for the great music.
