[08:13 PM est] » Read what today's tabloids have to say about the ongoing nanny lawsuit inside.

Click the headline to read text articles or go to the Magazines Gallery to check out the scans and photos sent in to us by Des. Also check out an article from Italian newspaper Leggo about the upcoming Zucchero duets concert in London, sent to us by Lorenzo.

03.26.2004 » Childsitter Lawsuit Continues; New Evidence Arises Today  
[09:09 PM est] » Lawyers for Dolores and Don Burton today put up a strong defense during a cross-examination of former nanny Joy Fahy. Attorney Bill Shipsey disproved dates purported by Fahy that Don Burton had been drunk and exposed Taylor to dangerous activity on a jetski. The defense also brought evidence today that Fahy had received illegitimate unemployment money from the Irish government while she was actually in London working for actress/model Elle MacPherson. All the details are inside, plus pictures, video, and audio reports from the High Court in London. More news on the former nanny's lawsuit to come soon.
 
03.25.2004 » Breaking: Former Nanny Sues Dolores & Don  
[08:13 PM est] » Dolores has recently said repeatedly that she wants to spend more time herself with her children, and for apparently good reason: a former nanny that worked for Dolores and Don is seeking legal action for an alleged broken contract and false imprisonment. The first details from Irish public broadcaster RTÉ are inside, with no doubt more newspapers and tabloids to follow in the coming days. Zombieguide will bring you the details as they happen.

[11:31 AM est] » Amazon.com has put up another short clip of "Ave Maria," though this one is different from the one that appears on The Passion of the Christ's official page. The 30-second clip follows the one that appears on the official site and is available in three formats: web applet, Windows Media, and Real Player. Update 03.23: Amazon has for some reason removed the clip, but where there's a will there's a way...
 
03.15.2004 » More Bad News: Cranberries Lost €1.3 Million During 2002  
[10:40 AM est] » Might a financial setback have been a contributing factor to The Cranberries' decision to call it quits for awhile? They're in no danger of running out of money, but for the past few years, Curtain Call's profit margin has been riding on fumes, and according to two tabloids this weekend, actually went into the red for 2002. Facts and figures within.
 
03.12.2004 » Dolores is Back - In a Terrific Piece of Art  
[03:33 PM est] » Maurizio di Bona, aka "The Hand," is doing what he does best: making some very sharp and witty Cranberries sketches. Sanremo is the topic of the day. I'm sure we could make some joke about this being the Zombieguide and Dolores being "back from the dead" so to speak, but really, it escapes us at the moment.
 
03.12.2004 » "Linger" Included On New Café Rock Compilation CD Set  
[03:23 PM est] » The new compilation "Cafe Rock" is described as a collection of artists that "changed music forever," and accordingly so, it's tracklisting is a who's-who of music from the last decade. The Cranberries made the cut with the ever-classic "Linger." For more on the CD, look inside.
 
03.12.2004 » Dolores to Appear at Zucchero Benefit Concert

03.09.2004 » Sanremo Press Conference Transcript  
[05:43 PM est] » When asked about fans' feelings towards the breakup of The Cranberries, Dolores responded rather coldly: "Come on! It wasn't a fatal attraction, it was just a group." Past tense does not a hopeful future make. More Q&A from Sanremo with Dolores O'Riordan about the dissolution of The Cranberries, inside.
 
03.07.2004 » More Photos from Sanremo  
[09:11 PM est] » More photos from the 54th Festival of Italian Song aka the Sanremo Festival. They come from Reuters this time, with an especially good one taken from Friday's press conference... If you have more, please send them to ZG! Updated 03.11 with another press photo.

03.05.2004 » Dolores Confirms Cranberries Break Up  
[11:25 PM est] » The rumors have been flying for a year and a half. It's now straight out of Dolores O'Riordan's mouth: "Maybe a new Cranberries album will never come out. Maybe we'll return together in 10 years, who knows? Nothing lasts forever. The reason of this decision is that my main priority are my children." The somber news comes from a press conference for Dolores done earlier today in Sanremo, Italy. Photos, quotes, and much more inside.
 
03.04.2004 » Dolores to Make First Solo Appearance at Sanremo Festival on SATURDAY!  
[12:42 PM est] » News reports out of Italy confirm that Dolores will be making her first public appearance in almost a year this coming Saturday at Italy's Sanremo Festival. She is scheduled to perform "Ave Maria" against a backdrop of images from "The Passion of the Christ" which festival director Tony Renis promises to be "a moment full of magic." And really, how could Dolores's first appearance performing solo material be anything less?

02.24.2004 » "Ave Maria" Studio Version Confirmed for "Music Inspired By the Passion of the Christ"  
[01:04 AM est] » Nine years after Dolores performed "Ave Maria" with Pavarotti, there is finally an acapella studio version on the way. But is it Schubert's "Ave Maria"? That, we still don't know. Surprisingly, all of the other artists that we expected on this soundtrack -- David Hodges, Ben Moody, Beyonce, Scott Stapp -- are all missing from the tenative tracklist. The tentative tracklist for "Music Inspired By the Passion of the Christ" plus information about upcoming promotion for the CD is inside!
 
02.23.2004 » Tim Palmer Mixing New Dolores O'Riordan Solo Track

Still no official announcement on its release yet, keep your fingers crossed. (Haha! Cross! Oh, I'm gonna burn for that one...)

02.17.2004 » "Music Inspired by The Passion of the Christ" Status Update  
[01:39 AM est] » It's not much of an upgrade, but the David Hodges official site now says that the "Music Inspired by The Passion of the Christ" CD now has an "unknown" status -- which is sure a whole heck of a lot better than "cancelled." Also, MTV reveals that Creed's singer has four songs written for the soundtrack. Will the CD be released sometime in the near or distant future? That, we can only hope -- and pray.
 
02.11.2004 » Passion of The Christ Multi-Artist Soundtrack Scrapped?  
[06:53 PM est] » According to David Hodges's official website, the soundtrack which was to include his song written for "The Passion of the Christ" has been cancelled without warning and without explanation. This is potentially very bad news, considering Dolores O'Riordan's acapella may have been planned for the same soundtrack.
 
02.11.2004 » Update: TAG Website is an "Illustration" Only  
[01:47 PM est] » Evidently, elements of the website for The Artist Group that were online yesterday were only an "illustration" and information contained on it was "not necessarily final or accurate." The website has now been changed to remove the "illustrative" elements. Also, we asked The Artist Group if Noel Hogan was involved with the new company -- read what a representative responded to that question.

Click the headline for the latest! Scan to (hopefully) come soon.
 
01.21.2003 » Two Soundtracks for "The Passion of the Christ"  
[10:37 PM est] » Billboard reports that while the score for "The Passion of the Christ" will come on February 24th, another "Music Inspired by The Passion of the Christ" multiartist CD will follow soon after. Dolores's acappella may be included on the second multiartist CD rather than on the score itself, but we still have no confirmation either way.

The clip along with the full Music Express interview (Part 4 coming soon) are now available in the Videos Section.

As always, thanks to Norbert of Zombieguide Europe for his handiwork in the video section. More videos will be coming in the future, so keep it tuned here to Zombieguide!

01.01.2004 » "Stars" Discography Now Online; Discography Now Complete!!  
[08:57 PM est] » This update was a long time coming, but we figured there was no better way to start off the new year than to finish off our extensive project of cataloguing every single one of The Cranberries' music releases.
