One of my fondest memories of the last few years was playing a BC show on the rooftop of a hotel in Cabo and then crashing the house bands set with “Zombie” while Payton Manning was hanging in the audience (lol) RIP Dolores, your voice always got me good ???? pic.twitter.com/WoeGhM8zCt

My first time hearing Dolores O'Riordan's voice was unforgettable. It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way. Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family.
