It’s been a long, long time since we can recall that The Cranberries have had a proper interview in an American-based national magazine — the only thing that comes to mind is the 2-page feature that appeared in the May 1999 issue of “Us Weekly.” But this fall, Dolores gets a page in a magazine where she certainly belongs: “Women Who Rock.”
As promised in the summer issue, Mrs. O’Riordan Burton is one of a series of “cozy chats” with guitar-strummers like Aimee Mann, Marianne Faithfull, and Dolly Parton (“That’s ‘Famous Titles,’ Mr. Connery”).
Most interesting is the fact that the interview was taken right in Dolores’ home, and the interviewer even describes her cooking a “proper Irish breakfast,” for young Molly, now a year and a half old. We could tell you more, but we’ll let you read it on your own below.
The Fall 2002 issue of “Women Who Rock” is available at major bookstores everywhere (We purchased our copy at Borders, so that’s a good place to start looking). Go buy it; any US magazine that puts The Crans’ name in print nowadays deserves your cash and it’s the best way to encourage them to continue in the future.
