Maroon 5 band mates stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday morning to talk up the band’s upcoming album, Red Pill Blues, but what they were really excited about was paying tribute to one of their musical icons: Chris Cornell. The 90-plus minute appearance kicked off with Levine talking about one of his few regrets so far in his otherwise charmed musical career.
Of course in this biz we get to meet a lot of people we love and respect, I never got to meet Chris… and it’s funny because we have so many friends and people in common and it just never really happened,” Levine said of his missed chance to get to know Cornell.
“Wait” is Maroon 5’s 3rd song in their album “Red Pill Blues.” It’s an upbeat pop song that is asking Adam Levine’s girl to stay and hear him out while she is leaving. He loves this girl, but knows he was a bad boyfriend to her. He wants to make up all those bad times just to get her to stay.
