Was just talking about her yesterday.  I saw the Dreams video on a music channel. 
I knew she had some personal issues, and had been out touring again in recent years.  I kind of thought of her as another Sinead O'Connor in terms of style. substance and fragilty - she had been in a fragile state in recent years, like Sinead.
Fortunate enough to see her and the rest of the band Live in 1994 in Liverpool.  She was classy, talented and attractive (I'll never forget the guy I stood behind at the show who shouted "Delores!" for the entire evening).
Gone too soon, another Irish star in Heaven.  RIP, Delores.

Beautiful song, beautiful voice
Grew up with their music, I did shed a tear this evening. What a loss!

So sad, so young.  RIP.  Dreams, Linger, Zombie, Ode to My Family so good.   I care.

Very sad. Very fond memories of The Cranberries in the 90s. Zombie was just immense. Loved their style. Loved Dolores' voice.

I was reading about Limerick yesterday. Another loss even though I wasn't crazy about her music. Linger does evoke unique Irish emotions.

God Bless her and her family! Great singer and songwriter! The Cranberries were an awesome band!

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee was one of my fave albums when I was younger. Such sad news. :(

I thought Bono referencing Linger at the end was a bit cringe. I watched a lot of U2 shows and interviews over the years and never once did I ever hear Bono or any member of U2 name checking Dolores or the Cranberries or saying anything positive about them. Then she dies and all of a sudden Bono is at it again. Just seems a bit crass.

Not really. I don't know what he said but it was likely just a mark of respect and acknowledgement for the passing of a fellow Irish musician whether he liked her music or not.
