Michael Allen Madden, also known as Mickey Madden (born May 13, 1979) is an American musician, who is best known for being the bassist in the pop rock band Maroon 5.

Life and music careerEdit

Madden was born in Austin, Texas. He began playing in junior high school, 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 James Valentine joining the line-up as the new guitarist 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 5 studio albums: Songs About Jane (2002), It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007), Hands All Over (2010), Overexposed (2012) and V (2014).
