April 15, 2015  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Thanks to Sara from Cranberries Italia for searching the web and finding this interview of the composer Angelo Badalamenti published on spiritandfleshmag.com
It’s a long interview about David Lynch, movies, Angelo’s musical career and other things.

Concerning Dolores there’s only one line but what a line:

Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries and I are working on her album;
she’s a wonderful lyricist with an edge to her voice.

More information about O’Riordan/Alexandrakis collaboration

March 12, 2015  |  5 Comments  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Composer/producer Eric Alexandrakis continues to tease Dolores’ fans with new exciting bits of information about their collaboration. And it seems like this collaboration has an official title now:
“Electrons featuring Dolores O’Riordan”
Electrons is the name of Alexandrakis’ project which includes different musicians from bands like Duran Duran, The Cure, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and others.

A few weeks ago we reported about the new song “You Got What You Wanted”. Today there’s more information about this track:
The song is written and recorded by Eric Alexandrakis, Perry Bamonte (The Cure; lead guitar?), Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; drums), Dolores O’ Riordan (The Cranberries; vocal) and Andy Rourke (The Smiths; bass guitar).
As you can see, Andy Rourke from Dolores’ new band, Jetlag NYC, has joined the Electrons, too. The lyrics for “You Got What You Wanted” were written by Dolores O’Riordan and, according to the title, it may refer to the recent events in her life.

Yesterday Eric Alexandrakis has posted a new exciting photo on Facebook with the comment “Betcha wish you had one of these.

Electrons featuring Dolores O’Riordan

Probably just a vinyl made to one copy or maybe just a photoshop montage of a record that does not really exist yet and we can only ponder how many songs the A-Side and B-Side of this vinyl have.

And there’s a clue as one of our readers, Mimi, posted a few days ago the following information regarding Dolores’ work with Electrons:

“They have quite a few tracks together:
“Redemption”
“Robophobic Redemption” (by far the most amazing sounding thing Dolores has ever been on)
“Purple Heart Redemption” (very clubby)
“Trust” (a.k.a. “La Fine”)
“You Got What You Wanted” (haven’t heard it yet)
and more coming from what I hear.

So… are we gonna have an ALBUM full of Dolores’ songs with Electrons?
Time will tell, or let’s just wait another hint from Mr. Alexandrakis 😉

Dolores O’ Riordan new live DVD (bootleg!) recorded in Basel at AVO Sessions

February 23, 2015  |  Comments Off on Dolores O’ Riordan new live DVD (bootleg!) recorded in Basel at AVO Sessions  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Danila Aranha shared a couple of days ago on the Facebook page of The Cranberries Brasil a very interesting photo of a new Dolores O’ Riordan bootleg DVD sold officially in store in Salvador by the shop Livraria Cultura.

AVO Session – bootleg DVD

Recorded in Basel, Switzerland on november 15, 2007 during the second European leg of the “Are You Listening Tour”, this show is very familiar to the fans as back in the days it was broadcast on TV in Switzerland and was immediately uploaded on YouTube and still can be easily watched these days on the internet.

Even if the picture of Danila totally makes illusion, this DVD is surely a bootleg item as there are very few chances that, almost 8 years after the performance without any official release, this shop in Salvador has the legal rights to sell it. So pay attention and know what you’re buying if you plan to order it. This dvd probably is reserved to die-hard fans and collectors and not addressed to the general public as production quality may be… uncertain!

DVD is NTSC, possibly factory pressed and not cheap homemade DVD-R.
As it probably should not have ended in that kind of store where people automatically think there are only official products on sale, its selling lifetime can be very limited so if you are a real collector make it fast before it becomes unavailable!

Quite the busy week…
Steve did his bits for a new Electrons song called “You Got What You Wanted”, featuring Dolores O’Riordan on vocals.

Barry Egan reveals that Dolores O’ Riordan has moved to NYC

January 12, 2015  |  2 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O' Riordan

In a new article entitled “Dolores makes a transfer to Manhattan” published on independent.ie, we learn that Dolores “is in the middle of putting down roots by buying a new home in the city that never sleeps” as she’s looking for an apartment in New York City, East Village.

I love New York […] I guess I was captive for so long. So I love it here. The people are so nice in New York. I have tons of fans here and they’re polite and discreet.
[…]
I spent Christmas here in New York with Andy, his wife and Ole. It was nice and quiet. New Year’s Eve is mad here but really cool. It’s so nice to be alive.

New Barry Egan article: Dolores banishing the darkness

December 21, 2014  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan

Barely a month after Barry Egan last article “Our Lady of Sorrows”, we’re waking up this morning with a fresh new article entitled “Dolores banishes the darkness and returns to the light” published online and in print in the newspaper “Sunday Independent”.

independent.ie

Barry Egan appears to be relieved to see his long-time friend Dolores O’ Riordan finally taking the road to recovery. Indeed, after admitting that he thought “Dolores wouldn’t make it out of the darkness she seemed so engulfed in last November when she was arrested on an Aer Lingus plane” especially as she had told him she was “not going to live that long. I’m 43. If I see 50, I’ll be happy. I mean that. People look at you and see a product. They don’t see a soul, but an empty hole” Barry Egan seems to be much more relaxed after meeting the singer last Tuesday.

From what he relates, Dolores seems to have taken comfort from her family and her new friends, co-band members Ole Koretsky & Andy Rourke (JetlagNYC) who have travelled from NYC to Dublin to spend the week with her.
She tells Barry:

I am just really grateful for the support I have received from my friends, […] I am well again now. I have had great help and support from people who love me. My mom has been great. My brother PJ – he’s my little angel. I had a lot of help from people. I don’t think I ever felt so cared for before. I always felt like this meal ticket.

“[…]no matter what happens I’ve got great friends who love me for me, not the fame bullshit. You really see who gives a shit. It’s cool but I’m still a bit crazy . ..good crazy though!

She admits nonetheless that she is not “100% better” than what she was following the Aer Lingus incident, but affirms she’s working on it, making huge efforts to heal herself, taking meds and trying to be “somewhat normal in a mad world“.

Spending Christmas far from her children who she “[misses] more than words can say right now” should be the next challenge for her.

Again, we can only hope that Dolores will find the love she needs and will manage to step forward on the road of recovery.

Possible short clip of “La Fine” a new song by O’Riordan/Alexandrakis (3 UPDATES)

December 17, 2014  |  2 Comments  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Composer, songwriter and producer Eric Alexandrakis who collaborated with Dolores few months ago has posted on Facebook a short clip of him playing guitar intro to some mysterious song.

Some of you may have read about this tune in the Irish press.

Posted by Eric Alexandrakis on Samstag, 13. Dezember 2014

Some of you may have read about this tune in the Irish press” wrote Eric

Attentive CranFans may remember that Irish press indeed reported about “La Fine” a new song recorded by Dolores and Eric. So this short clip could be a little piece of guitar part of “La Fine” (or not)… we just have to wait and see.


UPDATE #1

One of Eric’s Facebook friends wrote this: “It is! I’m one of Eric’s friends and can attest that it’s La Fine. It’s an amazing track, edgy, dark, killer. Perry Bamonte from The Cure is playing lead guitar, Steve Ferrone of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is playing drums, bass player Mark Egan on bass and Eric on everything else!


UPDATE #2

The forementioned message by Eric’s friend on Facebook was later deleted so we guess this information was a little bit too confidential.


UPDATE #3

CONFIRMED, this is “La Fine”
In the comments on Eric Alexandrakis’ Facebook people kept asking if the video was “La Fine” and Eric replied: “I guess the cat’s out of the bag… yes… this is the tune”

Dolores 3rd solo album: 6 tracks done with Marco Mendoza so far

December 5, 2014  |  Comments Off on Dolores 3rd solo album: 6 tracks done with Marco Mendoza so far  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

2 days ago the webzine 100% rock magazine published the complete interview Marco Mendoza gave in november and that first appeared in edited form in X-Press Magazine’s December 2 issue. X-Press Magazine is one of the most-circulated free street presses in Australia.

xpressmag.com.au

On the edited version the few words about Dolores were skipped (possibly because Marco was coming to Australia to play concerts with his band The Dead Daisies which has nothing to do with Dolores) but on the long & online version his words concerning Dolores O’ Riordan are revealed. Nothing really new that we didn’t know before but one thing: 6 tracks done in studio so far and more to come after his Australian concerts. Obviously this was before Dolores was arrested, now it will/should be after after!

Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries called me from New York, and so I flew up there. We were at the Electric Lady studios recording, we did six tracks.

I got home, and I’m going to continue that after I’m done with The Daisies, she’s trying to get an album together for a solo project. This’ll be my third album with her.

“Our Lady Of Sorrows”: New article by Barry Egan

November 19, 2014  |  11 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O' Riordan

From the numerous articles published recently in the Irish press, one stands out, that of Dolores’ long time friend, the Irish Independent journalist Barry Egan, who decided to relate “the turbulent – and very sad – story of Dolores O’ Riordan.”
Indeed, following the incident which took place a week ago aboard the EI110 flight from NYC to Shannon, tabloids had a tremendous time commenting on the “mighty fall from grace” of Dolores O’ Riordan, making fun of the “pious [now] caught in sin” and emphasizing that the singer was spending time in a “posh hotel” (sundayworld.com) after she left the police cell. How tough for fans and all those who love Dolores to read this.


sundayworld.com

Thankfully, M. Egan felt the need to set the context so as to urge readers to remain compassionate. As a matter of fact, in his article, he recalls his fellows of Dolores torment from the past, going back over the sexual abuse she suffered for four years as child and explaining how this episode led her to “anorexia, nervous breakdowns, and suicidal thoughts over the years”.

We would thus like to encourage everyone to pay attention to Barry’s heartbreaking article, and follow his advice: don’t judge Dolores O’ Riordan too hastily. “Our” lady of Sorrows needs love and support more than ever, and being in the media spotlight will definitely not help her to accept and follow the road of recovery.

Again, we continue to send our best wishes to Dolores, her family and her friends during this difficult time, hoping she’ll finally get the helps she needs to achieve some closure.

Eileen O’ Riordan Offers Update on Dolores’s Health

November 13, 2014  |  5 Comments  |  by Shannon  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Today, the Limerick Leader published an in-depth interview with Dolores’s mother, Eileen O’ Riordan, who shares a bit of detail concerning Dolores’s marriage separation and her state of health. The interview is available both in print and online.

Limerick Leader – Front page

“She is going through a marriage separation at the moment. That’s hard for anyone” said Eileen.

Dolores’s mother goes on to state that though Dolores is currently doing much better, Dolores did not recognize her mother at the garda station in Shannon, Ireland, where Dolores was arrested on Monday morning.

“Dolores was inside in a room, she was lying on the floor, curled up. She had her head covered and her face covered up. She was trying to protect herself. I gave her a hug. I tried to talk to her. She didn’t realise I was there at all. I put Lourdes water on her. She didn’t know who I was, she was trying to cover herself from me” said Eileen.

Mrs. O’ Riordan said that she was anticipating her daughter’s arrival on Monday and was in the process of preparing Dolores’s breakfast when she received a call from her son with the news of Dolores’s arrest.  She says that he had been fearing for Dolores’s health for some time, prayerful that Dolores would not be in New York, away from those who could best care for her, if or when something were to go wrong.

“I was waiting for it, hoping that it wouldn’t happen in New York. It would be awful because she wouldn’t have the support there. She is suffering from lack of sleep over the weeks and her brain is racing all the time. She is working very hard. When she was in New York she kept saying ‘when I go home to my mother in Ireland, I will be fine’. She was working in New York producing a new album.”

“She rang on Sunday to say she was coming. She was OK then but she wasn’t herself. She wasn’t Dolores. She would hide it from me. If I asked ‘are you sleeping?’ she would say: ‘Oh I am, I am.”

Mrs. O’ Riordan says that at this time, Dolores “is a lot better than what she was, thanks be to God”.

She confirms that Dolores remains in Ireland where she is cared for by a nurse and a psychiatric doctor who visits Dolores daily.  Dolores reportedly speaks with her children by phone and they are aware that their mother is not well at this time.  The children remain in Canada with their father.

When answering questions specifically concerning Monday’s on-board incident at Shannon International Airport, related to the alleged assault of a flight attendant and an arresting officer, Dolores’s mother states that when Dolores was taken to the hospital for a medical and psychiatric evaluation following the arrest, there were no drugs or alcohol in Dolores’s system.

“She had two glasses of wine with her dinner when she started off but she had no alcohol or drugs in her system. That is completely clear”, Eileen says.

It is suspected that Dolores had been hassled for autographs, photographs, and requests to sing during the flight and had been poked by a couple of passengers who were reportedly drunk, seated behind Dolores, for the duration of the flight and that Dolores “lost it”.

Mrs. O’ Riordan also says that the injured flight attendant is a long-time acquaintance of Dolores: “That girl is a friend of hers. She is a very nice girl. She knows [Dolores] for years.”

Dolores’s mother goes on to say that Dolores had been flying in the company of a “producer and songwriter” (presumably JETLAG partner Olé Koretsky, with whom Dolores had been photographed during her time in New York City over the last several weeks).

When asked how she remains strong to care for her daughter, Mrs. Eileen O’ Riordan credits her strong faith.

“I pray.  I don’t know what I would do only for my religion. There are so many good people – so many I have met are lovely and are thinking of her and praying for her and what more can we do at this stage.”

From all of us, we wish Dolores a full and speedy recovery.  We also express our deepest regret to learn of Dolores and Don’s marital separation and send all of our absolute best wishes to Dolores and her family during this difficult time of transition and healing.

Eoghan McDermott supports Dolores O’ Riordan

November 12, 2014  |  Comments Off on Eoghan McDermott supports Dolores O’ Riordan  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Eoghan McDermott, an Irish television presenter who is hosting “The Voice of Ireland” has expressed his support for Dolores O’ Riordan in an interview entitled “Eoghan McDermott hopes DOR bounces back from air rage arrest – as she’s an awesome person” and published by Goss.ie yesterday.

I think she is amazing. This morning I heard a reporter on who said an eyewitness said she didn’t deliberately stamp on the foot that she was jumping like going a bit mad” he said.

It was collateral damage so that was some reporter that spoke to an eyewitness. Wait till it all falls out. And obviously she was taken into hospital so you just wish her well you know that she’s okay.”

At the same time it’s s**t for the air hostess to have her foot stamped on. I think Dolores is amazing and I will always stick up for her she’s an awesome person.

I remember she told us on the show that she moved into a pretty desolate part of Canada just because she liked solitude a bit” he said.

I don’t know if she gets angsty around people or confined spaces so obviously they felt she needed to go to hospital.

Eoghan McDermott also told Goss.ie the very first time he met the 43-year-old was an extremely bizarre encounter:
Literally the first time I met her she was chatting to Bressie and I walked in the room and she was like ‘Lads let’s go, let’s touch a tree
She made us go outside and touch a tree just because she wants to be connected with the earth.

Dolores “Getting Help She Needs” – Eileen O’ Riordan

November 12, 2014  |  2 Comments  |  by Shannon  |  Dolores O' Riordan

According to an article entitled “Cranberries star held after claims of fight” published by The Irish Sun, Dolores’s mother, Eileen O’ Riordan, has confirmed that Dolores is currently under a doctor’s care and is getting the help that she needs, following the news of Dolores’s arrest at Shannon International Airport in Shannon, Ireland on Monday morning.

The front-page story posted on thesun.ie goes on to confirm that Dolores remains in the custody of her mother who is optimistic about Dolores’s health.  Mrs. Eileen O’ Riordan is quoted as stating: “My girl will be OK”.

“The Irish Sun” also quotes Mrs. O’ Riordan as saying that she was “not surprised” that this incident occurred – suggesting that Dolores’s family  has had cause for concern over Dolores’s health and well-being over the course of recent weeks and months.

“The Irish Sun” also alludes that additional charges may be pending related to Monday’s incident, citing that Dolores may have allegedly further resisted arrest.

We will continue to provide updates and additional information as news becomes available; and we continue to express our best wishes for Dolores’s health and recovery during this troubling time for Dolores and her family.

Dolores O’ Riordan placed under arrest in Shannon, Ireland (UPDATED)

November 10, 2014  |  10 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Quite an unexpected news this morning as we’re learning that Dolores has just been arrested by the garda following an “alleged air rage incident” on a flight from NYC to Shannon, Ireland.

The article entitled “Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan released into custody of mother after alleged air rage incident in which ‘garda was headbutted and air steward injured’” published by independent.ie describes the incident, explaining that Dolores refused to seat as the flight was landing and stamped on an attendant’s foot.
She then headbutted a garda before spitting in his face at the airport.

We shall probably wait for more information before we get to comment on this surprising event.
Let’s mainly hope our favorite singer is fine and not enduring tough times as it looked like she was lately…

UPDATE

The Independent’s article was updated with more details on the situation.
It seems Dolores has been released from garda custody and has now been hospitalized.
Journalists are awaiting comments from O’Riordan’s representatives…

Dolores O’ Riordan & Marco Mendoza in studio (2 UPDATES)

November 8, 2014  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan

Andy Rourke may not play bass on Dolores’ upcoming album as Marco Mendoza seems to be back in the game. You might remember that he had started working with Dolores back in October 2013 on new tracks, which he said would not necessarily end up on a third solo album.

This time we trust this project is beginning to materialize as Dolores has been working in NYC for more than a month now. Mendoza mentioned on Facebook on Nov.4 that he was flying back from Miami (where his band The Dead Daisies was opening for KISS ) to NYC so as to join Dolores in studio.

KISS CRUISE !!! what a great time ………… Just got back to MIAMI > on my way to N Y city to work with DOLORES O”RIORDAN ………… stay in touch and updated at : marcomendoza.com and thedeaddaisies.com …. Australia !! see ya soon.

and confirmed the information the day after, still on Facebook, even adding the name of the studio: “Electric Lady”

In THE Studio with DOLORES O”RIORDAN in N Y at ”ELECTRIC LADY”
Great Music !!!!! marcomendoza.com and thedeaddaisies for up dates and
more info ……….. see ya out there soon !!!

And today Katarina Benzova, who’s none other than Guns N’ Roses photographer as reported last week, posted on Tumblr a great new photo of the guys at Electric Lady Studios.
This is all getting quite exciting, isn’t it?

Dolores jamming in studio today with… Marco Mendoza

October 30, 2014  |  Comments Off on Dolores jamming in studio today with… Marco Mendoza  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

A new photo of Dolores O’ Riordan in New York City appeared on Instagram today. This time it wasn’t posted by a random fan but a famous professional concert photographer named Katarina 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 guitarists of the band).

It seems that this time Dolores stopped for a little jam in the studio with the rock band “The Dead Daisies” made of Marco Mendoza, Jon Stevens, Richard Fortus, Dizzy Reed and more. Right now they are in NYC rehearsing for their upcoming shows. According to Katarina’s instagram, the photo was taken at SIR Studios on 25th Street in New York City.

It is not too surprising to finally find a photo of Dolores taken by Katarina Benzova as she’s been on tour a lot with Marco Mendoza recently, with Thin Lizzy for instance, and as you might remember Marco used to collaborate with Dolores on her first solo album and tour. He is said to be a very good friend of the Burtons.

On Katarina’s photo, everyone will notice Dolores wearing that kind of medieval hat which was part of the costume she already wore in the streets of NYC a few days ago. Remember? How cool is that!

October 17, 2014  |  Comments Off on Dolores O’ Riordan emerges from shadow in NYC  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan

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 medias, photos 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 on Facebook the following message which also includes a great new photo:

Love DoloresO Riordan…October 2014…..

This heartwarming message comes as confirmation that Dolores seems to have met, with Rourke, a bunch of people who makes her feel particularly alive and at peace.
The Supergroup Dolores mentions (Jetlag) is that of Andy Rourke and Olé Koretsky, a record producer who has turned into a DJ on a radio called East Village Radio.
The duo claims their music is disco, post punk and adult contemporary. You can give it a try by visiting JetlagNYC’s Soundcloud.

The duo has officially added Dolores to their line-up by mentioning her as a band member on Twitter, saying Jetlag (@JetlagNYC) sounds like @AndyRourke64 + @doubleOle + @DolORiordan

Also to note, the photo posted yesterday (Oct.16) by JetlagNYC on their Facebook tends to show that they are in perfect harmony with Dolores and vice versa.

We can only be pleased to see that Dolores is feeling at ease with their way of life, as if she had found herself again which, once more, makes us believe that the upcoming album should be very interesting, possibly darker than “No Baggage” and as alternative and deep as “Are You Listening?”

With all our love to the beautiful person she is, hoping that she follows her own advices (“enjoy your life… lighten up”).
