On Monday, New York City-based photographer, Brian Moghadam, shared a throwback photo of the Maroon 5 frontman in his high school days, on Instagram. In the photo, the pubescent Levine is almost unrecognizable without his signature ink.
In the caption of Mgohadam’s post, the photographer looked back at his decades-long career and reflected on Maroon 5’s debut 2002 album, Songs About Jane.
He wrote, “I literally picked up a camera in high school and never put it down. And since 2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Songs About Jane I thought it would be nice to post old memories of the band through their early years.”
He continued, “This is a picture I took in high school probably 1996 or 1997. Pretty sure we're up on Amalfi hanging out and enjoying the view. It might even be our old friend Brad T's approach to his driveway. And who can miss Josh's classic Volvo station wagon. Best stick shift I've ever seen."
Long past his high school days and twenty years since the release of their debut album, Levine has amassed a number of intricate tattoos and Maroon 5 has seen global success, earning multiple GRAMMY awards along the way.
Levine is now a father to two daughters, Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 3, whom he shares with his wife and Victoria’s Secret model, Behati Prinsloo.
