Yeah, whenever I hear Bruce playing it's always the DX7-esque electric piano patch. When it stands out, it's a little cheesy, but when it sits right in the mix (as it usually does), it probably adds a nice cushion, that the audience can't really distinguish. Similar to Al's guitar playing in Brian's shows.

Bruce’s piano is only live for about 3 songs in the set

Bruce said to Howie Edelson in an interview (which can be looked up here) that he (Bruce) saw his keyboard at live shows as mainly an accompaniment for himself, and also mentioned that the audience would really only notice anything if Bruce's keyboard dropped out of the live mix.

There's no question Bruce is a good piano player. So it's worth noting that any criticism of his prominence or lack thereof at live shows either in terms of what he's playing or how audible it is, has to do not with his ability, but with his practical usefulness musically at live shows.

Scott Totten told me that Bruce's keyboard is always on and that his keyboard is the "main sound" in Darlin' and the chorus and bridge of Good Vibrations.
