    Well, that's shitty news. RIP




    The lead singer of Irish rock band The Cranberries has died aged 46 in London, her publicist has confirmed.

    Dolores O'Riordan was in the city for a recording session, according to a statement.

    Her family are "devastated" by the news of her death and have asked for privacy.

    The publicist said: "Irish and international singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old.

    "The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time.

    "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time."

    The band, which was formed in 1989, rose to international fame in the early 1990s and sold more than 40 million records worldwide, with hits including Zombie, Linger and Dreams.

    The group released five albums before taking a break in 2003.

    So sad, she was young... I remember meeting that band at a private event the Hard Rock put on (Berlin was there, Sammy Hagar, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, and a few others). The band was cool, she was funny in that dry sarcastic Irish way. This sucks, RIP

    And the closing of the final chapter. No real surprise, but it's still a damn shame.

    A friend of mine partied with her and her band in Tokyo. That was at their height in the 90s.
    He’s a straight up jet set speed freak insert drug party animal.
    He said she could really drink and party.

    was found submerged in her bathtub at a London hotel on Jan. 15.

    The 46-year-old singer didn't leave a note and there was no evidence of self-harm.

    Five miniature alcohol bottles and a bottle of champagne were found in the room, and toxicology tests revealed a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit for driving.

    Coroner Shirley Radcliffe said O'Riordan died from drowning due to alcohol intoxication.
