M is for Maroon 5


Those who know me and/or follow my blog already knew my M post would be Maroon 5 since they're my favorite band of all-time.

And I heart Adam Levine.



I wrote about how I came to like Maroon 5 in a previous post (click here if you want to read it) so in this post I'll just give some general info and pics.

Before they called themselves Maroon 5, they were known as Kara's Flowers. (Fun fact: my main character in my current MS is named Kara. Yes, because of Maroon 5. Don't judge. LOL)


Anyway, they were Kara's Flowers until 2002. They changed their name to Maroon 5, but they keep it secret as to why. The only person the band claims to have shared the meaning behind the name is Billy Joel.



They've been nominated for 9 Grammy awards and have won 3.

 

Current Members:
Adam Levine - lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar
James Valentine - lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Mickey Madden - bass guitar
Matt Flynn - drums
PJ Morton - keyboards, backing vocals (temporarily replacing Jesse Carmichael)



Member on hiatus:
Jesse Carmichael - keyboards, backing vocals
(taking time off to study music)




Former member:
Ryan Dusick - drums, backing vocals



My top songs by them are very hard to choose. BUT if I had to, they'd be:
Harder to Breathe, Sweetest Goodbye, Woman, Losing My Mind, Until You're Over Me, Give a Little More... See? It's too difficult for me to pick!!!

Who is your favorite band? Any songs you love?
