I don't go to shows to watch the musicians with my arms crossed studying their every move, but when there are blatantly obvious fuckups on multiple occasions it starts to get annoying. When you're unable to perform a song like "Sad But True" adequately, that's not a good sign.

Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
