At sixteen, Adam Levine had a record deal. His band Kara s Flowers was on a popular TV show and he thought he would be a star. When his first record didn t sell, the band broke up. Afterward, he discovered music he really wanted to play. Most bands weren t playing it and many people didn t think it was cool. Still he kept practicing. He rejoined with members of his band and they became Maroon 5. It took them years to become stars. But, they did it playing the music they loved.
