Nick is easily a better fit than Matt Maggioni was. Matt & Summer also didn't use picks as far as I know. Nick also clearly actually wants to be there. I don't see what the issue is.
EDIT: Clearly I'm wrong about the Matt pick part after a youtube search. I don't remember Summer using them when I saw them with him the band though, and since he was the bassist for most of the discography.....
