Looking dapper in dark suits, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and James Valentine drew a largely female crowd when they swung by our offices for lunch this Wednesday. The guys regaled us with stories about the making of their new album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long. "We went to Vegas to write, which was a terrible mistake as you can probably imagine," Levine said. "But for me it actually works because I have ADD, so if I go to Vegas I can actually focus."
We were also beyond flattered when Levine let us know not once, but twice that he wants to work for Rolling Stone. You can keep your eyes peeled to see if his dream becomes a reality, but for now take a listen to some of what the guys shared with us.
• On how John Mayer loves Maroon 5...and it's all because of Hanson.
• On the band's new album sounding "reminiscent" of the Police.
• On how the only person who knows the truth behind Maroon 5's name is...Billy Joel!
