    • Adam Levine: Eventually I want to focus on being a completely different person because I don't know if I want to do this into my 40s and 50s and beyond, like the Rolling Stones.

    • Adam Levine: I have to usually drink a little tequila, that's usually what happens, I get into celebratory mode, because I can't really party much on the road because I sing every night, so that's an important thing. Hang out with friends, loved ones, family.

    • Adam Levine: (On the single, If I Never See Your Face Again) Sometimes you have really meaningful deep sexual experiences or you experience attraction but it may be fleeting or may it be something that you just are feeling lustful about. Not every song has to be about love and tenderness, sometimes you have those strictly physical feelings for somebody and it's OK to have those feelings. I think that's kind of the point of the song.

    • Adam Levine: (On touring France) [It was] kind of a nice change of pace from everything... not hectic, very serene, very pretty, a lot of nature, a lot of hills and mountains and beautiful countryside. it was very relaxing. We had a lot of fun and drank a lot of red wine.

    • Adam Levine: (On believing in a mind-body connection from yoga) I was skeptical, to say the least. I was wary of the cliche´s associated with yoga: spirituality used as a marketing tool or Eastern philosophy sold at Starbucks to disenchanted lawyers and accountants looking for meaning. What I soon realized is that yoga welcomes everyone-that's extremely appealing.

    • Adam Levine: (On starting yoga) A year and a half ago, my trainer recommended I try working with Alanna to help with my flexibility issues. I'm naturally very tight in lower back and my hips and hamstrings too. My first class felt like someone was ripping my body apart. It wasn't what you'd call peaceful. But I was excited by the idea that the more dedicated I became the more effortless it would become to relax and give in to that tightness. Yes, the torture subsided a bit over time.

    • Adam Levine: (On how yoga changed his body) Physically I have always been on the slender side. When I started practicing I instantly felt more sculpted. Yoga carves you into a different person-and that is satisfying physically.

    • Adam Levine: (On practicing yoga) Yeah, I do it all the time. We're fortunate enough to have a private instructor out with us who is with us every day, so we practice. So it really helps. It helps your brain, it helps your body. It helps your life in general.

    • Adam Levine: (On working with Rihanna) It was amazing. She's incredible, you know? She's so talented, so beautiful, so sweet. She's the complete package, the whole package.

    • Adam Levine: (On how Maroon 5 ended up working with Rihanna) We thought we needed a female touch, and you know, she was just perfect. We really wanted to get a great female singer to add to the song. She was our first choice and we made it happen, and we love her.

    • Adam Levine: (On Counting Crows, Maroon 5 and Sara Bareilles performing together) I think those three voices together might sound interesting. I'm really excited about this tour because there's so many great singers and so many great musicians. I can guarantee there's going to be some sort of collaboration.

    • Adam Levine: We straddle this world of pop music and this world of ... I don't even know what it is, but we're very much in this kind of in-between place.

    • Adam Levine: I was happy to be touring with [Counting Crows] because there are so few bands at this point that are touring bands that are for real. There's a lot of smoke and mirror these days, but it's nice to be thought of as the same type of band and we can go out and hit the road and do it the old-fashioned way.

    • Adam Levine: I've spent my 20s on tour and there's no consistency in my life, which can take its toll. Eventually I want to focus on being a completely different person because I don't know if I want to do this into my 40s and 50s and beyond, like the Rolling Stones.

    • Adam Levine: It's flattering, but although I actually dated some of them, I've never even met the others. Until I'm married, I'm going to keep my private life quiet. I would like to be with somebody for ever, but marriage is a failed institution statistically, which is kind of disheartening. I don't know if it's possible to live the rock'n'roll lifestyle and still be romantic, but I think long, deep relationships are amazing.

    • Adam Levine: (On Kelly McKee and Rihanna) She was amazing – we had a lot of chemistry. Much of our music is sexually driven, because I love women.

    • Adam Levine: Let's face it, I only practice yoga because the classes are always packed with beautiful women.

    • Adam Levine: There are so few bands at this point that are touring bands that are for real. There's a lot of smoke and mirrors these days, so it's nice. I think we both have the same touring ethic in that we both go out there and hit the road and do it the old-fashioned way still.

    • Adam Levine: It's a really big struggle for me to write a song. Songs take either 30 seconds for me to write or a year or two to piece together, depending on the song and how I'm feeling on any given day. I don't really like to write music at all unless I am completely unbothered by touring.

    • Adam: Caffeine is like a really attractive girl that has nothing to say. You get all jacked up on it and then you're left feeling hollow and empty. You drink eight cups of Starbucks, you might as well have done cocaine.

    • Adam: (On former lover, Maria Sharapova) She wouldn't make any noise during sex. I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I really thought, like a lot of guys, that she'd be the loud screaming type. But instead, she just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, said it 'ruined her concentration.' It was so disillusioning that I went on Paxil (an antidepressant) for a month afterwards. Really, it was much more of a shock than when I found out there's no such thing as the Easter Bunny.

    • Adam: Every male secretly wants sex with Brad Pitt.

    • Adam: I was a huge Beatles fan. The Stones, Dylan. Later on, I got into Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers--he's one of my heroes. Al Green, too.

    • Adam: John Mayer was the first real avid supporter of the band that was a big name. He genuinely loved the music, and walked into our dressing room like a year and a half ago and said, 'I love your record.' I think he was the first person to really jump on board.
