    Awful news. I have an extra-bad feeling about this. I hope I'm wrong.

    Quite a few rockstars seem to end up dying in hotel rooms, it seems.
    Very sad.

    Crushed. Been listening to the Cranies again over the past few weeks, and reminded how enigmatic her voice and punk attitude were. Loved her.

    RI Peace, Dol'.

    No big fan of The Cranberries or Dolores' voice, but that's really sad, only 46? RIP.

    I feel sad at her passing but I thought The Cranberries were overblown. An average rock band who got the lucky breaks.

    Aren't they all? (From the point of view of an ex-member of an average rock band who didn't get any of the lucky breaks :) )

    But I do find that single very memorable - I can hear it in my head now. Not to mention somewhat courageous.

    She does seem to have been in good form shortly before her death but when you are suicidal it can be easy to up a cheerful front as I know from personal experience.

    In the early hours of Monday morning O’Riordan left a voicemail message for Dan Waite, the Managing Director of the music label, Eleven Seven. He told People Magazine “Dolores left me a voice message just after midnight last night stating how much she loved Bad Wolves’ version of Zombie. She was looking forward to seeing me in the studio and recording vocals."

    Waite continued: "She sounded full of life, was joking and excited to see me and my wife this week. The news of her passing is devastating.”

    The international renowned singer, originally from Ballybricken, in east County Limerick, suffered with depression throughout her career. In 2013, she attempted to take her life. In 2015, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

    Police are still saying they are treating her death as unexplained.

    Yet another brilliant, creative, yet delicate talent who found the stress of living unbearable. She battled the mundane, the depths, the contradictions. Was overcome by the intensity, and chose exit. I understand the conflict and choose to endure the fierce challenge of it all, but appreciate the difficulty of those who can't. Life's a bitch. Feeling deepest sorrow for her kiddies and direct family. The bottom of my heart dropped out today. Theirs must be unmendable. So so sad.

    Awww, nooo, not Peter Wyngarde! He was about as camp as a man could be and yet audiences believed in him as a ladies' man. What a total mystery.

    I had a geography teacher at school who looked like him, even dressed like Jason King. He didn't last long.

    According to Wiki:

    Peter Wyngarde's date and place of birth, his birth name, and his parent's nationalities and occupations are all disputed.

    Evidence suggests that Wyngarde's original name was Cyril Goldbert and that he changed his name after arriving in the UK in the mid 1940s. Author J. G. Ballard wrote in his memoir (and stated in interviews and private letters) that he and his family knew Wyngarde as Cyril Goldbert in Shanghai during World War II, but in interviews Wyngarde denied knowing Ballard

    Wyngarde claimed in a 1993 interview that his mother was a racing driver.
