I don’t remember the year however I remember the scene vividly. I was at Griffith Park park in Los Angeles with my friend Helen and my dog Ceasar, a handsome sheltie dog and he was playing and running around and he got very close to a few people sitting down near us. I yelled out to him to come back to me, and then the woman in the crowd spoke out with a very melodic heavy Irish accent – “Ceasar, Ceasar.” She then said, “He is lovely!” As he ran back to us my friend said in a very docile tone, “That’s the lead singer from The Cranberries.” I heard her voice from that day on, and often times mimicked it when calling my boy! So for me, Dolores O’Riordan was much more than just a great pop voice, she was one of the most distinct voices I ever heard call out my dear companion’s name, “Ceasar, Ceasar”. I can hear her today…still.
On another note, I am starting to introduce THE PASS to a few key people in London. So far, so good…more to follow as the story continues. Fall/winter 2018! If you can dream it, you can do it!
