Before Dolores O’Riordan’s untimely passing, I sat down with both Dolores and Noel Hogan from The Cranberries and we spoke about their then new album "Something Else." The initial inspiration of which was around the band’s 25th anniversary, how the album came together and where it was recorded. Dolores tells a great story about the band being on the TV show The Bachelorette, and they both also spoke about coming to NYC for the very first time, where they played, and being on that first US tour, playing college campuses, and getting into trouble at hotels along the way. They reminisce and tell anecdotes about REM’s Michael Stipe, playing Woodstock 1994, Dolores’ duet with Pavarotti, and meeting Simon Lebon, The Edge, Brian Eno, and opening up for AC/DC and The Rolling Stones, and lots more. Here’s the “Out Of The Box Uncensored” podcast with The Cranberries.
