Rehab's Danny Boone: "Everybody's Thought 'Whore' at One Time or Another"

By Caleb Haley

Usually it happens this way in the music industry: A band comes together based on its talent and, eventually, drugs and alcohol get in the way, tour dates get canceled, and members go their separate ways into substance-abuse rehabilitation and counseling. Rock/hip-hop group Rehab took the opposite route; they were formed inside a rehab center.

Led by singer Danny Boone, Rehab has played music they love (and some they hate) across multiple genres for more than a decade, finding success with jukebox sing-along anthems that support deeper, more personal stories. Their upcoming tour and album, Whore, looks to hook the next generation of Rehab fans. In the meantime, we talked to Boone about the band's new album, his current state of mind, and how he manages to keep his music fresh.

Rehab is scheduled to play Tuesday, May 7, at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe.
