Dolores O'Riordan Dead: The Cranberries Singer Was 46

The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan seen in Toronto in 2009 has died suddenly at 46

The statement adds: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very hard time".

Three years before her sudden death, O'Riordan called it quits with Don Burton, her husband of 20 years.

The Irish musician lead the band to worldwide stardom in the 1990s with hit singles like "Linger" and "Zombie".

Celebrities shared tributes on social media following the announcement from O'Riordan's publicist, Lindsey Holmes, who confirmed the Irish singer had died in London, where she was recording. The band released their first album in 1993 titled Everybody Else is Doing It, Why Can't We? As the female lead singer of a hugely successful rock band, she blazed a trail and might just have been Limerick's greatest ever rock star.

Dolores O'Riordan has died. First is the hit "Zombie" while the other video is of the song "Dreams". Later that year, the band canceled most of its European summer and North American fall tour dates due to what was described as Ms. O'Riordan's "recovery from her ongoing back problem".

In those early days of her career, off-stage Dolores O'Riordan had none of the swagger that made her a compelling performer.

In 2016, she avoided a criminal conviction and was fined €6,000 euro (£4,690) for head-butting and spitting on a police officer following an alleged air rage incident at Shannon Airport.

Medical reports produced for the trial at Ennis District Court revealed she had been suffering from mania, mental illness and severely impaired judgment at the time of the incident, and that she remembered nothing about it. "Our thoughts go out to her family at this awful time". Hopefully her songs can still live on forever even years after her passing.

On stage, Dolores was in her element.

The band went on to release four more albums No Need to Argue (1994), To the Faithful Departed (1996), Bury the Hatchet (1999) and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee (2001).
