Chat with Pete Bauer

Auto Update: Off

Catch The Walkmen on tour now with Kings of Leon.
Welcome to The Life! In our never-ending quest to bridge the gap between the sports and music worlds, we bring you a live chat with Pete Bauer, bass player for The Walkmen, and full-fledged NBA fan.

Bauer and The Walkmen are currently on tour with Kings of Leon and still basking in the glory of their heralded 2008 release "You & Me" which appeared on numerous year-end best lists. The band is made up of Paul Maroon (guitar, piano), Walter Martin (organ, bass), Matt Barrick (drums), Hamilton Leithauser (vocals, guitar) and Bauer who also flexes his organ skills in addition to playing bass.

A self-diagnosed obsessive basketball fan, Bauer is in a fantasy basketball league with other musicians and despite being in first place all season, suffered a heartbreaking loss in the playoffs. A fan of the Chris Webber-Vlade Divac edition of the Sacramento Kings, Bauer currently is without a favorite team and instead chooses to follow specific players including his favorite, Allen Iverson.

Bauer will join us on Wednesday, April 29 at 3 p.m. ET. Send your questions now about life on the road, playing in a successful rock band and whether we are all just biding time until the Cavaliers and Lakers face off in the NBA Finals.
