Hot Press Sinéad O'Connor Tribute Issue


Hot Press special edition of the magazine in commemoration of the life and work of Sinéad O’Connor.

When Sinéad O’Connor died at her home in London, it sent shock waves through the community in Ireland – and among friends, musicians and fans across the world.

“Sinéad was one of the most important Irish artists of the past 50 years,” Hot Press editor Niall Stokes says. “She was a singer, songwriter and performer of transcendent ability and huge emotional range and depth. Her voice was an amazing instrument, capable of moving from a whisper to a banshee wail, traversing the full spectrum of where the human spirit can take us. Her music made an enormous impact, inspiring people and touching so many of them to the very core. Her extraordinary legacy demands that we mark it in an appropriate way.”

Hot Press' Sinéad O'Connor Tribute Issue includes crucial interviews with Sinéad from the Hot Press Archive, marvellous pictures, the late Hot Press great Bill Graham on Sinéad (from the Hot Press archives) and will feature special contributions from the Irish singer's friends, family, and fellow artists – including Bob Geldof, Joseph O'Connor, John Reynolds, Denise Chaila, The Edge of U2, Kathryn Ferguson, Shane MacGowan, Gavin Friday, Dot Allison, David Holmes, Victoria Mary Clarke, Moya Ní Bhraonáin of Clannad, and many more.
