147When Maroon 5’s debut album, Songs About Jane, was released in 2002, the band went on tour with Train, O.A.R., and Sheryl Crow — playing a second stage in each venue’s parking lot. They fought hard for their success, and it’s paid off with a career featuring four platinum albums and nine Top 10 singles, including their latest, Maps. The band’s accomplishments have made its lead singer, Adam Levine, a celebrity in his own right, with a regular gig on The Voice and a co-starring role in the new movie Begin Again.
