Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan Dead At Age 46

by Christian Mower on January 15, 2018

LONDON, ENGLAND – The lead singer of the Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan passed away today in London at age 46. According to the Rolling Stone the band’s publicist released a statement confirming  O’Riordan’s death.

The Statement said “Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time. Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

No cause of death has been revealed.

According to BBC News O’Riordan was reported to have unspecified back problems, which caused the cancellation of the second part of the Cranberries most recent European tour, although in late 2017 O’Riordan claimed to have been recovering and performed at a private event.

WMWV sister station Magic 104 Morning Show host Gino Devaney had a chance to interview O’Riordan last year about their latest album. You can listen to the interview below.

O’Riordan was the lead singer of The Cranberries for 13 years before the band took a break starting in 2003, reuniting in 2009.

According to wikipedia Dolores Mary Eileen O’Riordan was born and brought up in Limerick, Ireland. She is survived by her three children, who she had with her ex husband and former Duran Duran tour manager Don Burton.

NH Senate Passes Decriminalization Of Marijuana

by Christian Mower on May 12, 2017

Concord, NH (AP) – New Hampshire is on the path to joining its New England neighbors by decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana. The state Senate passed legislation Thursday to remove criminal penalties for possessing up to three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana.

It must go back to the House for a final vote before heading to Gov. Chris Sununu. He’s likely to sign it.

Thursday’s vote marks a major victory for advocates of marijuana reform, who have seen their attempts at decriminalization stymied for years in the Senate. Police chiefs have long been opposed, arguing marijuana use can lead to harsher drugs.

Backers of decriminalization say a marijuana charge can ruin a young person’s life, potentially harming their ability to get a job. They say the police’s resources are better spent fighting the state’s opioid crisis.
