I know this is a photography site but I had to acknowledge the passing of Delores O’Riordan from The Cranberries. She passed away on January 15th.
I can count on my fingers the amount of people in the entertainment or sports industry that I would be completely awestruck upon meeting. She would have been one of them and I had the chance to meet her but didn’t. We had met a guy that played in a band from the 80’s that would get together with other musicians once a summer. It was a field party/jamming week-end. We got an invite and I chickened out. I knew there was a chance I would not even be able to speak if I saw her face to face!
I have met “famous” people before, and never thought they were any different than anyone else. I am not one to put people on pedestals. Delores was the exception.
R.I.P You will be missed.
The daffodils are for her song Daffodil Lament. Time Is Ticking Out was a fantastic song.
Another of my favorites was Zombie:
