I'm not delusional for liking how one musician performs over another. Matt did a good job of filling in but compared to Tom that was just bland and boring to me in singing and guitar playing. I don't give a fuck if Tom isn't perfectly in tune at every show - he has a unique voice, a unique playing style and says some absolutely hilarious shit live all of which is gone now. I'm not gonna pretend these videos made me excited
I think every fan with a brain agrees Tom has turned nuts and was detrimental to the band for years now, but I just didn't think that performance was anything to get hyped about. Glad he's gone but not particularly interested in spending hours searching for every live video like I used to
