Maroon 5 Get Back to Basics on Mutt Lange-Produced LP
Eric Helton, Matthew Murphy
Years before Maroon 5 stepped into a studio with Robert "Mutt" Lange, the producer played a huge role in their musical upbringing. "He was involved when you were a kid, no matter what," frontman Adam Levine says as he and keyboardist Jesse Carmichael recall their love of Lange hits like Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me," Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" and AC/DC's "Back in Black" (check out our full video interview above). And when the California-based band decamped to Switzerland for two months of intense work on their third disc, Hands All Over, they were focused on soaking up the experience of working with one of the best-selling producers of all time.
