What is Brad actually playing on the piano on WFTE?

There are plenty of other videos where you can see him playing that "one note" part (it's actually 2 notes - an octave interval on E), so my only guess is that the part where the drums drop out is sampled. Brad's the only guy in the band who doesn't wear in-ear monitors, so he can't hear the click track - he relies totally on Rob and wedge monitors on the side of the stage to keep in time. I forget what show it was, but there was one occasion where Rob played a prank on Brad by getting up from his drums and walking away during Bleed it Out, and Brad totally lost track of the tempo. I think he did play the piano throughout that section during some earlier performances, because I know I've heard him get off track there before, so they probably made a change at some point.

 

Also, yay for more "ZOMG THEY AREN'T ACTUALLY PLAYING THEIR INSTRUMENTS" crap.

Dosn't he have a click track and monitor in his headphones? Or are they not electrical and only for noise-reduction?
