Tribute to matt flynn

In 2006, after being the band's touring drummer for two years, Flynn officially replaced the original drummer of Maroon 5, Ryan Dusick, who left the group due to serious wrist and shoulder injuries sustained from constant touring after the release of their first album, Songs About Jane in 2002.

Flynn was born in Woodstock, New York. When Flynn was 14 years old, he picked up his first pair of drumsticks in his father's basement and immediately started drumming the beat to "Jump" by Van Halen, impressing his father greatly. Later that year he came third in his high school talent show, behind stand up comedian Daniel Tosh and a dance crew known as "Tropic Lightning".

Flynn graduated from Gunn High School and briefly attended San Diego State University.

Personal life

Flynn is married to Heidi Ford, who has a fraternal twin named Jenny "Jenni" Ford. On June 5, 2007, Flynn's wife gave birth to their second child, named Michael Ford Flynn. His elder daughter is named Ryan.
