On today’s Kyle Meredith With…, Noel Hogan of The Cranberries shares what it took to put together their final record, In the End, and how many of its songs now carry new meanings beyond how they were intended when Dolores O’Riordan wrote them. He also discusses the possibility (or lack thereof) of working with another singer for live shows in the future, the upcoming reissue of No Need to Argue, and why Woodstock ’94 was one of the band’s greatest shows ever.
