I was very disappointed to hear today that she has left us so early in life.

The official Cranberries website cited, "medical reasons associated with a back problem" preventing singer Dolores O'Riordan from performing.

"Irish and global singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today, family members are devastated", Lindsey Holmes said in a statement.

Waite claimed she appeared to be exuberant and excited to see him and his wife. In an interview in 2013 she said she had been abused as a child which later led to an eating disorder and a breakdown.

The Met Police said they were called to a hotel in Park Lane shortly after 9.00 am on Monday morning, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

While no cause of death has yet been given, police have confirmed it was "not being treated as suspicious". The Corrs stars Jim and Andrea Corr have also added their thoughts, while heavy rockers Bad Wolves, who were working with Dolores on a cover of The Cranberries' Zombie when she died, have posted a message on Facebook, stating they are "shocked and saddened" by the news.

O'Riordan was catapulted to fame as a shy 22-year-old in 1993 when songs from her debut album were picked up by MTV. Overall, the band has sold an estimated 40 million records. "That, aside from her having this lovely unique voice".

The band shared a brief statement following the news saying they were "devastated" by the passing but now Hogan has shared an extensive tribute on Rolling Stone.

"I know how hard it can be for someone in Ireland to take a stand like that so I admire her for her bravery, honesty and compassion". "The world has lost a true artist".

Her most recent project was the band D.A.R.K, which she formed with her boyfriend Ole Koretsky and former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke.

"Dolores O'Riordan and The Cranberries had an huge influence on rock and pop music in Ireland and internationally".

Her body is expected to be returned to Ireland following the autopsy, where a funeral will be held in Limerick.

Dolores, who will be buried in her hometown Ballybricken, was married to Duran Duran's former tour manager Don Burton for 20 years, but the pair split in 2014. At Limerick City Hall, a book of condolences was opened, with a steady stream of people coming in to sign it.
