:( Dolores O’Riordan, the singer of the 1990s Irish band The Cranberries, died Monday in London, according to media reports.

She was 46. :( No one's naming the cause yet. So young - damn :( .

I'm still in shock. Such a special person, and such a special voice. Still no cause of death has been named. Apparently, she was dealing with mental health problems (bipolar), like so many people. I'm not speculating whether she has committed suicide - it's tragic either way.
