The origin of Maroon 5 could be tracked back to 1994 when Adam Noah Levine (born March 18, 1979 in Los Angeles, California) and Jesse Royal Carmichael (born April 2, 1979 in Boulder, Colorado) were still the students of Brentwood High School in Los Angeles, California. One night, they went out together with Adam's old friend, Ryan Michael Dusick (born September 19, 1977 in Los Angeles, California) who was an alumni from the same school. All of them came up with an idea to make music together as a pop rock band which they quickly named Kara's Flowers. Looking for one more member among the other schoolmates, they were finally joined by Michael Madden (born May 13, 1979 in Austin, Texas) after he responded positively upon their request to include him in the band. » more
