    They did War Pigs justice even with the changes.
    All players and the singer went all out at some point in the song.

    Yeah but playing electric instruments while sitting in a pool is pure stupid. I wouldn’t even stand that close next to it. Hopefully it was dubbed. Just image a slip and fall in the pool, even if there was no owner, you’d ruin your instrument.

    The keyboardist could get away with it as the keys are plastic.
    But not the bass or guitar. When I was 11 years old my brother let me hold his
    335 while he went to answer the phone, I was standing on wet concrete bare footed.
    Zap. But I didn't drop it.

    It's rock, it's not supposed to be played safe!

    I think it was played and recorded live. At least that's what I deduced from the comments.

    Unless something was seriously wrong it's highly unlikely that either of them (guitar or bass) would damage anything but their instruments. The keyboard player could be toast (literally) unless he took some precautions and went through an earth-leakage circuit breaker.

    A guitar or bass is a passive instrument, there's no electricity in any circuits except for the very weak one induced in the pickups by the movement of the strings. If the amp starts outputting electricity on the guitar chord which is possible, something is very wrong.

    The keyboard isn't powered directly by 230VAC, or in this case 110VAC but rather by some DC, probably in the range between 12 and 32 volts.
