Speaking about his radio program, Nobody can ever walk alone, Danny opened last year about his fight against mental illness.

& # 39; Guys would text me & # 39; and, say they would come by, because they knew that I fought a little. I would live around them sms & # 39; and & # 39; & # 39; and pull down the shutters on the blinds. For some reason I didn't feel worthy enough, & he said in November.
