Olé Koretsky’s statement / D.A.R.K.’s statement

January 17, 2018  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan, The Cranberries

D.A.R.K. just released a statement which includes Olé’s first words:

My friend, partner, and the love of my life is gone. My heart is broken and it is beyond repair. Dolores is beautiful. Her art is beautiful. Her family is beautiful. The energy she continues to radiate is undeniable. I am lost. I miss her so much. I will continue to stumble around this planet for some time knowing well there’s no real place for me here now.

The statement also reveals that “Dolores was in London working on a mixing session with Martin Glover / “Youth” for the follow-up to Science Agrees which hopes to see a future release as that would have been Dolores’ wish.”

This morning, independent.ie announced that post-mortem results are due for release tomorrow.

Let’s note note however that website Santa Monica Observer announced that a source in the London Police Department said Dolores O’ Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning:

Lead Singer of the Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning Monday, said a source in the London Police Department. Authorities found counterfeit fentanyl near the 46 years old rocker’s bed. The source added that an official cause of death will probably have to wait for a toxicology report. He added that suicide and a deliberate overdose are suspected.

The Mirror reported that Dolores’ body was discovered in the bathroom of her suite by the cleaners. She was staying at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

WORST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry we just can’t find words to comment on that…
Here’s just a link to the article of Independent

Dolores once said in an interview that she couldn’t picture herself live over 50.
Unfortunately she was SO DAMN RIGHT.

Our deepest condolences go to Her Family, first.
Thinking also of the boys, the beautiful Cranberries team, and all our fellow fans.

WE LOVE YOU DOLORES
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

Noel Hogan on stage yesterday for charity event

January 13, 2018  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

Noel Hogan was one of the surprise special guests yesterday at “Metis Ireland”, an event in aid of 2 local charities, Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch. Concert held in Limerick at Dolan’s Warehouse, the famous local pub, so yes Noel kinda played home.

After Dolores last month, it’s was Noel’s turn to appear on stage to play 2 Cranberries songs. Funny thing, he played the exact same 2 songs, “Zombie” and “Linger”.

Singer Emma Langford posted on Facebook a video of “Zombie” with the following comment:

It was *just a bit* nerve-wracking singing Zombie with its actual writer playing guitar right behind me…
Kind of incredible though?
Na… Totally. Totally incredible.

Thanks – endless immeasurable thanks – to Karl Daly of Metis Ireland for making this gig happen; to Dolans Pub for hosting the occasion; to all the artists who gave their time and talents and to everyone who came out to support Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch; to Dan Murphy and Dermot Sheedy of Hermitage Green, Nile St. James and Cein Daly for sharing a stage with me; and Noel Hogan of The Cranberries for writing such an epic tune, giving his time, and allowing us to perform it on a great night full of great intentions for a great cause.

I love Limerick, and music.
