Dolores O’Riordan to be remembered in candid TV documentary

The late Dolores O’riordan is to be remembered in a documentary featuring rare archive interview footage to be broadcast on TV in her native Ireland.
The Cranberries frontwoman passed away suddenly at the age of 46 in a London hotel room last month (Jan18). British authorities are yet to announce her cause of death, although police officers are not treating it as suspicious.
Bosses at RTE, a TV station in her native Ireland are to broadcast a documentary tribute to the star fronted by Irish rock journalist Dave Fanning, who has compiled a collection of interviews he conducted with the Zombie singer when The Cranberries were at the height of their popularity in the 1990s.
Dave tells the Irish Independent newspaper, “Most of the footage is from the 1990s when they were in the middle of their heyday of 1995 and what happened to them then. It starts off in 1999 and then goes all the way back to the beginning in 1991.
“It’s Dolores talking to me about various things like fame, success, love and all the rest of it – a glimpse into the kind of life that she was leading. She was resolutely un-rock ‘n’ roll and stayed that way.”
Revealing the musician’s love of the simple life, he added, “She always said she’d rather talk to the guy in the bar in Limerick about his cow’s mastitis (udder inflammation) than hang around celebrity places. Her best friend was her mum.”
Dolores, who suffered from bipolar disorder, joined The Cranberries in 1990 but the group really found success after touring America with British rock group Suede in 1993 – as their single Linger became a huge U.S. hit, and their first two albums sold more than 20 million copies in total. She quit The Cranberries in 2003, but reunited with her old bandmates in 2009.
Ahead of her funeral in her hometown of Ballybricken, Ireland last month, thousands of fans queued up to pay tribute to the star at a local church.
