Drummer Matt Flynn spent time behind the kit with the B-52's and Gavin DeGraw prior to his work with pop/rock outfit Maroon 5. He initially stepped in on a temporary basis in late 2004 to help out the band after original drummer Ryan Dusick injured himself from constant touring and playing and was unable to perform. Flynn was called to learn the band's songs in just a couple of nights, and wound up sitting in with Maroon 5 for over a year before becoming a permanent member of the group in September 2006, after Dusick's injuries did not heal. His recording debut with the band was on their 2007 sophomore album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long.
