RIP: the Girl with Extremes in her Irish life

The death of Dolores O'Riordan

The death of Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of the Irish band the Cranberries, remained unexplained as a flood of obituaries and related stories surfaced. They included Rolling Stone running this video of a great live 1995 acoustic rendition of "Zombie," part of an "MTV Unplugged" taping at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It was off their 1994, and biggest album, "No Need to Argue," and was inspired by the death of two children in an Irish Republican Army bombing.

Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan has died at the age of 46. One of the most New York things I've ever seen is a horse-drawn carriage booking it up 11th Ave with the driver singing Zombie at the top of his lungs. RIP, Dolores

O'Riordan tweeted a picture of herself with her cat to fans in early January saying she was "off to Ireland".
