Rehab was originally formed as a trio: Denny Campbell (Steaknife), Danny (Boone) Alexander, and Jason Brooks (Brooks Buford). Danny Boone and Steaknife, both from Warner Robins, Georgia, were the rap group "Prime Suspect"
Danny Boone and Brooks Buford, both recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. It is a common misbelief that they met at a rehab facility. The trio formed Rehab, literally a product of their namesake.
Early on, they released their first album To Whom It May Consume produced by Steaknife and Brooks Buford. Soon after, Epic/Sony offered a record deal. Shortly before the record deal, Steaknife was incarcerated and the group continued on as a duo. Mashing rap with rock, the duo released their major label debut album, Southern Discomfort, in 2000 on the Sony label. Cee-Lo, Goodie Mob, and Cody ChesnuTT were some of the guests on the album, which would spawn the Top 15 modern rock hit "It Don't Matter." Two years were spent on the road supporting the album, including a stint on the Warped Tour, and then the duo splintered.
"Rehab" is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna for her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007). Def Jam Recordings serviced the song to contemporary hit radio in the United States on October 6,2008, as the eighth and final single from the album. It was released in the United Kingdom as a CD single on December 8,2008. Development of "Rehab" began while Rihanna was accompanying Timbaland on Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow tour in 2007. Timberlake wrote the song in collaboration with its producers, Hannon Lane and Timbaland, and provided additional vocals. "Rehab" is a mid-paced R&B song with an emotional, melancholy chorus; the lyrics are about the protagonist's painful memories of her former lover, who is portrayed metaphorically as a disease.
Regardless of venue, musicians usually perform on a stage. Concerts often require live event support with professional audio equipment. Before recorded music, concerts provided the main opportunity to hear musicians play.
The nature of a concert varies by musical genre, individual performers, and the venue. Concerts by a small jazz combo or small bluegrass band may have the same order of program, mood, and volume—but vary in music and dress. In a similar way, a particular musician, band, or genre of music might attract concert attendees with similar dress, hairstyle, and behavior. For example, concert goers in the 1960s often had long hair (sometimes in dread lock form), sandals and inexpensive clothing made of natural fibers. Regular attendees to a concert venue might also have a recognizable style that comprises that venue's scene.
Kontsert (/kɒnˈtsɛərt/; Russian:Концерт (commonly corrupted to Kohuept); English:Concert) is the second live album by Billy Joel, released in 1987. The album was recorded during the Soviet leg of Joel's 1987 The Bridge tour. The tour made history, as it was the first live rock radio broadcast in Soviet history.
Joel's cover of The Beatles' "Back in the U.S.S.R." became the first single released by Joel that was written by someone other than himself. The B-side was "The Times They Are A-Changin'", Joel's live cover of Bob Dylan's song.
Joel himself has said he was disappointed by the album and that his vocals were not up to par during its production and Columbia Records released the album without his input.
On May 19, 2014 the album was rereleased & retitled as A Matter of Trust: The Bridge to Russia, A two CD, one DVD/Blu-ray set incorporating eleven previously unreleased tracks on CD and seven previously unreleased & restored songs on video. In addition the DVD/Blu-ray set contains a newly produced documentary of the same name which features updated interviews with Joel's current & former band members as well as personnel involved with the original 1987 production.
