The star of The Cranberries and lead singer Dolores O’Riordan died suddenly at the age of 46. The Irish musician led the band to international success in the 90s and is best known for singles like Linger and Zombie.

The Cranberries shot to fame in 1993 with their debut album titled, quite appropriately, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? It went on to sell about 40 million records worldwide!

Here’s a touching tribute to the singer from the rest of the bandmates:

Ode to my family:
