Biography

Michael Allen "Mickey" Madden (born May 13, 1979) is an American musician. He is the bassist for the pop rock band Maroon 5.

Life and music career

Madden was born in Austin, Texas. He began playing in junior high school at the Brentwood School in Los Angeles, playing in garages along with friends Jesse Carmichael (guitar/vocals) and Adam Levine (vocals/guitar). The bands Pearl Jam and Nirvana were among their influences. In 1994, with the addition of Ryan Dusick (drums), the band Kara's Flowers was formed.

After the break-up of Kara's Flowers, Madden attended classes at UCLA. After Madden attended college, the group reformed with guitarist James Valentine joining the line-up, and Jesse Carmichael mainly playing the keyboards, and pursued a new musical direction, changing their name to Maroon 5. Throughout their career, the band has released six studio albums: Songs About Jane (2002), It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007), Hands All Over (2010), Overexposed (2012), V (2014) and Red Pill Blues (2017).

He is the only other member besides Adam Levine to have remained in both Kara's Flowers and Maroon 5 consistently.

Madden also has a side project called Collapsing Scenery, with multi-instrumentalist Don Devore and Madden (who under the alias as Reggie Debris).

Personal life

Madden was a dedicated vegan for several years and supports Farm Sanctuary.
