Dolores O’Riordan’s Death Ruled “Not Suspicious”

ABC News reports:

The death of The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan is not being treated as suspicious, British police say. O’Riordan was found dead at a London hotel on Monday morning (local time) and officers initially described the death as “unexplained” but now say nothing suspicious had been found.

The case is being passed to a coroner to determine the cause of death. The 46-year-old Irish singer was in London to record vocals for a cover of The Cranberries hit Zombie by Los Angeles rock band Bad Wolves. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said that “for anyone who grew up in Ireland in the 1990s, Dolores O’Riordan was the voice of a generation.”

    They tell us to live today like it’s the first day of our life.
    I disagree. Live today like it’s your last. It well could be.

      The problem with that philosophy is I’d never do the dishes or laundry, or even brush my teeth and shower.

          I don’t wanna brag, but last night I recycled all my empty liquor bottles, which was four or five.

          There’s a 20 cent deposit on liquor bottles here, but they’re only returnable to beer stores, and I don’t buy beer.

          So I was faced with hanging on to them till the weather’s nice enough to walk to the beer store or just recycling them with other recyclables. I have no actual use for coins in my life, since I don’t do any cash transactions.

      I’d rather live each day without the fear of death to motivate me. Living with fear as a motivator seems like hell itself. Don’t live each day like it’s your last, live each day like you have no fear, it’s much less likely to induce neurosis and you’ll be happier without that pressure.

    Zombie is one of my all-time favorite songs. I love the music. I love the singing. And the lyrics resonate with me more than most.

    I just think of one of the most amazing songs of all time – “Linger”. It truly filled me with awe.
