As usual now, a new great picture of Dolores O’Riordan in NYC appeared on Instagram today. This time it wasn’t posted by a random fan but a famous professional concert photographer named Kat Benzova who’s notably working with Guns N’ Roses (the rock band who led her to get known, especially as she’s dating Richard Fortus one of the guitarist of the band).
If you know the work of The Hand you must already know that he is a very prolific cartoonist. As you can judge on his Facebook account and official website he sketched a lot of international and local (Italian) celebrities with his own unique style.
These last months he drew a lot of new portraits of our favorite Dolores. CW already wrote a news about that last august but The Hand continued to draw of lot more after that.
One by one on our Cranberries World Facebook page we shared his works but that is something we don’t really like to do as many people don’t have, don’t like or simply don’t want Facebook. For all those people, here comes a summary of his work!
As you may have noticed these last days, Dolores O’Riordan seems to be living quite an active life in New York City where she’s currently working with Andy Rourke from The Smiths.
The singer was spotted a couple of times partying in some bars and, thanks to social media, pictures capturing these moments ended up on the Internet, enabling us to get some news of our idol.
Today, news are no longer coming from ordinary people anymore but from Dolores herself!
Although she’s not too much into anything Internet-related, she made an exception and posted the following message on her Facebook page much to our (an all fans’) delight: Read More
Surprising pictures of Dolores in New York keep on popping up on the Internet and this new one shows once again that our favourite singer is having a good time out there.
According to the guy who took the picture, Dolores’ perfectly fine. One may imagine that she has started partying for Halloween?
What seems to be certain, though, is that the upcoming album should be quite “rock”, probably closer to Are You Listening ? than No Baggage.
Let’s also note that another Instagram user has had her Cranberries vinyls signed by Dolores on September 13th thanks to one of her acquaintance who “is drumming on her new album”, which means that Dolores was thus recording in studio in Toronto a couple of weeks ago (and that she is not working with Graham Hopkins on this album).
Seems like we shouldnt have to wait too much longer before we get to hear some new pieces.
A new 256 pages book featuring hundreds of pictures taken by the Limerick Leader photographers was published this week.
Pictures come from the archive of this Irish local newspaper and many of them are published for the first time. It appears that there is (are?) picture(s) of Dolores O’Riordan amongst many other Irish famous faces like, for instance, Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy.
The book costs €29.99 and seems unfortunately to be only available locally.
More details in this Limerick Leader article.
In the Spring of 2014, O’Riordan told the journalist Nicky Byrne from RTÉ 2fm that she had already written some new stuff for her upcoming album and would collaborate with The Smith’s Andy Rourke.
It seems the work is “in progress” as an employee from a tapas & wine bar located in New York recently posted a picture of the two rock stars, saying that they had already visited the place twice last week and had planned to return.
It has just been announced in the Irish Independent that Dolores O’Riordan will definitely not seat in the red chair this year as Una Foden, from the band The Saturdays, will be the third coach on new series of the TV show. As we know, Dolores was not willing to return to the show as commuting from Canada to Ireland was very tiring.
The singer is also supposed to be releasing a third solo album at this end of this year/beginning of 2015, and should then be going on tour to promote her news songs, which should not allow her enough time to dedicate to The Voice of Ireland.
Let’s note Jamelia should not return either due to expensive commute from London every week. Her replacement has not been announced yet.
