Lead guitarist/vocalist of Ten Years After. - zxm

42 Adam Levine (Maroon 5) Adam Levine (Maroon 5) Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

AH, Yah... He DOES play the guitar and drums and sings, not all at the same time but guitar and singing... Definitely, very sexy!

Shouldn't be on this list as he isn't the lead guitarist for Maroon 5, and very rarely plays guitar in Maroon 5.

The best singer of all times

He doesent play guitar

Some of the greatest rhythm playing I've ever seen. rapid fast downpicking and some his parts seem nearly impossible to play and sing yet he does it with ease.
