From being at the concert in L.A. and listening to various youtube video with my headphones, it becomes apparent that Scott does not play the same bass lines as Matt did on the album. This is a real bummer cause I spent so much time learning all of the Blue Album and Pinkerton bass lines note for note.
I have to admit, I am laughing. not just by the OPs comments, but by the responses here.
maybe scott thinks the basslines suck?!?
he didn't write them and i'm guess he wanted to put his own spin on them. keep in mind that a concert is not a record. they should do different things. i think this hard for some people to accept. if you just want to hear what was on the record why didn't you just stay home and spin pinkerton? it would have been much cheaper.
Well I am a bass player and I grew up on Pinkerton, I won't disagree that Scott is a great bass player in his own right but he should at least try to do something similar to the original bass lines, oh well.
