Λίγες ώρες μετά το θάνατο της Dolores O’Riordan, τα μέλη των Cranberries μέσω του επίσημου λογαριασμού της μπάντας στο Facebook, έσπευσαν να εκφράσουν τα συλλυπητήριά τους στη φίλη και συνάδελφό τους.
Χωρίς να μακρηγορούν και με απλά αλλά πολύ συγκινητικά λόγια εξέφρασαν τη λύπη τους:
Είμαστε συντετριμμένοι με το θάνατο της φίλης μας Dolores.
Ήταν ένα ξεχωριστό ταλέντο και αισθανόμαστε τυχεροί που υπήρξε μέρος της ζωής της από το 1989 όταν ιδρύσαμε τους Cranberries.
O κόσμος έχασε μια πραγματική καλλιτέχνιδα σήμερα.
Νοel, Mark και Fergal.
H Ιρλανδή καλλιτέχνιδα βρισκόταν στο Λονδίνο και ηχογραφούσε, ενώ ακόμα είναι άγνωστη η αιτία θανάτου της, με τις πρώτες, ανεπιβεβαίωτες, πληροφορίες να αναφέρουν πως βρέθηκε από την αστυνομία νεκρή στο ξενοδοχείο που διέμενε.
Εκτός όμως από τους Cranberries, δεν είναι λίγοι και οι άλλοι καλλιτέχνες που σπεύδουν να αποτίσουν φόρο τιμής στην Dolores O’Riordan μέσα από τα social media:
I have just heard the new regarding #DoloresORiordan I need a little time to process what has happened. Suffice to say, I am very sad to lose someone who meant so much to me and to many people across the world. RIP my songbird

My first time hearing Dolores O'Riordan's voice was unforgettable. It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way. Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family.

Absolutely shocked to hear about the passing of Dolores O'Riordan! @The_Cranberries gave us our first big support when we toured with them around France years ago! Thoughts are with her family and friends

Devastated for fans and her family- Dolores O’Riorden had such an exquisite voice, so distinctive and defining of an era. She would have continued to be a rare musical treasure late into a long life #gonetoosoon https://t.co/2QH2cPgRf6

For my 13 years old self with my Doc Martin boots and the lyrics learnt to Zombie…. Dolores O'Riordan was the epitome of cool. What an amazing voice and performer. Such sad news. Thoughts to her family. #RIPDoloresORiordan

Dolores O’Riordan was so incredibly unafraid of being vulnerable. Or maybe she was afraid, but she did it anyway. She taught a generation of girls not to shy away from being too much, too loud, too obvious and ugly in their pain.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan. Don’t know a lot of the Cranberries catalog, but Zombie is an incredibly powerful and great song. Very sad. Gone way too soon. God speed

Dolores O’Riordan has had such a huge impact on me in so many ways. Watching the light and shade in her performances, her voice, her attitude. She’s the reason so many young girls saw a place for themselves in rock music. So, so sad. #DoloresORiordan

So sad to hear about Dolores O'Riordan, she's one of few artists who is ingrained in my psyche even though i never actively listened to her work, such is the unending genius of songs like Linger and Zombie. thoughts are with her kids and her family. X

Was shocked to hear that Dolores O'Riordan passed away….. So young and so talented! She was a huge part of the soundtrack to my childhood and a great representation of Irish music on the world's stage. #RIPDolores pic.twitter.com/1nKVwQANrG
