Published on May 24, 2007 with 3 Comments

Adam LevineMaroon 5¬†frontman Adam LevineE broke a band pact recently when he revealed to fellow musician and member of the tribe Billy Joel the meaning behind the group’s name.

Nobody but the members of Maroon 5 knows the reason for the band’s name, until Levine decided he had to tell Joel after the singer/songwriter unveiled a secret of his own.

“I’m a huge Billy Joel fan. I was having dinner at Nobu in New York, and I ran into Jay-Z, who I’d just met, and he introduced me to Billy,” he says. “I had to ask him, ‘What do you say in the sax solo in Still Rock And Roll?, because I thought he said, ‘All right, Rico.’ He was astonished. He took a second and said, ‘All right, Rico.’

Levine added: “Later he came over and asked, ‘Where’d you get the name?’ It’s the stupidest, s**tiest story you’ve ever heard, but I had to tell him.”
