Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of the Cranberries, died in London today at the age of 46.

They had to cancel several concerts and said at the time that this was because O'Riordan had a back problem. The cause of death was unclear.

Holmes says the singer's family is "devastated" by the news.

The Daily Mail reports O'Riordan died in a hotel in London, where she had been recording with the band D.A.R.K, which she formed with former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke in 2009.

Higgins described O'Riordan's death as a big loss to Irish music, saying her influence was "immense".

The Cranberries went on a hiatus in 2003, and Ms. O'Riordan released two solo albums. In 2015 she admitted to assaulting an air hostess on an Aer Lingus flight in November 2014 shortly after separating from her husband of 20 years Don Burton.

Our thoughts are with Dolores' friends and family during this hard time.

Dave Davies, a founding member of 60s rock group The Kinks, expressed his sadness and surprise at O'Riordan's death. Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family.

The Cranberries rose to global fame in the mid-1990s with a string of hits, including "Linger", "Zombie" and "Dreams".

Leaving the court, she said: "I don't really have much to say, just that I'm glad it's over". Dolores and her bandmates - Fergal Lawler, Noel Hogan, and Mike Hogan - were in London for a recording session when a rep for the band told the site that she died "suddenly".

As always, our thoughts are with Dolores' family and fans during this incredibly heartbreaking time.

O'Riordan, from Friarstown, Kilmallock, Co Limerick, was renowned for her distinctive singing voice.
