Unexpected and terribly sad. The Cranberries' 1994 album "No Need to Argue (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/no-need-to-argue/2285515)" was one of my favourites...

Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of Irish band The Cranberries, has died. She was 46.

Publicist Lindsey Holmes said O'Riordan died suddenly Monday in London, where she was recording.

The cause of death wasn't immediately available. Holmes said the singer's family is "devastated" by the news.

The Limerick band became international stars in the 1990s with hits including Zombie and Linger.

O'Riordan previously lived in Canada for a time with her now former husband, Don Burton, with whom she has three children. The couple separated in 2014.

Just saw this on CNN when I came back from lunch. Way too young and a real shock. Loved her music, both solo and with the Cranberries. What a voice!

Nothing in the samplers really grabbed me, but that may reflect more on my tastes than her talents. Still far too young to die. May she rest in peace.

Huge in the 90's, so part of it is nostalgic for me, that was my era.

Pretty much my reaction. Too bad anyone has to go that young.
