Hanging out with Dolores O'Riordan

On Friday evening, I interviewed Dolores O'Riordan. I was terrified beforehand, but she turned out to be utterly lovely and was more open, honest and candid than I could ever have imagined.During the interview, her words were wise and worldly as she told me all about her descent into illness and depression. While the interview was pretty heavy in subject-matter, she was actually very funny and cheerful. The mood was one of comfortable conversation rather than interviewer/interviewee as she sipped beer, admired the picture-book view of Sydney through the window, checked out the photos on my digital camera and even complimented me on my clothes.

When, as a young fellow, I watched an impossibly cool O'Riordan belting out Zombie on MTV, I never dreamed that I would one day be accepting her compliments about my sartorial elegance in a five star Australian hotel. Life is strange sometimes. Strange yet wonderful.

You look on the verge of a bit of a cry in that photo mate. I guess it was all to much. I shed a tear last week when a lady complimented my trousers.

With their tanks, and their guns, and their bombs - they are fighting.

"Six foot tall man looking like he is about to cry" is a really hot look this season...
