CRANBERRIES singer DOLORES O'RIORDAN died yesterday morning. She was 46. Her body was found in a hotel. There's no cause of death, but sources say she'd been struggling with depression and back pain again.
The band posted this on Facebook: Quote, "We're devastated . . . she was an extraordinary talent, and we feel very privileged to have been part of her life . . . the world has lost a true artist today."
James Corden: "I once met Delores when I was 15. She was kind and lovely, I got her autograph on my train ticket and it made my day. She had the most amazing voice and presence."
Hozier: "My first time hearing her voice was unforgettable. It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way."
Foster the People: "The Cranberries were pinnacle in showing me that it was possible to fully embrace masculine and feminine energy in one cohesive sound. She was a true pioneer."
Liz Phair: "She had such an exquisite voice, so distinctive and defining of an era. She would've continued to be a rare musical treasure late into a long life."
Dave Davies from The Kinks: "I was talking to her a couple weeks before Christmas she seemed happy and well . . . we even spoke about maybe writing some songs together . . . unbelievable."
