I think the problem is that we have different definitions. I think that a simplified version of the main bassline is still basically the same. 

But I've been wrong before, and I'll be wrong again!

Regardless, Paul doesn't play something similar to the main bassline on the album at all, he just plays A (x8) D (x8) C (x8) D (x8), hope you understand what I'm trying to say. As for it being because he hasn't played it in a long time, it's possible but I think option 1 is the most likely option especially considering that The Beatles Book Monthly says "Paul didn't contribute to all songs on this album, John played bass on Back In The USSR and Helter Skelter " and then follows in it's article on the song "John plays bass here, George does too". If I had to guess, the backing track had Paul on drums, John on bass, and George on rhythm guitar, with John's original bass being wiped and replaced with a new bass part by him as well as a bass part by George but then again, if that were the case then why would he play bass onstage instead of piano or guitar.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Maybe he would rather play the bass live instead of piano or guitar though.
