There was also a video of Steve Gadd playing to a clicktrack and he grooved just as well.

If you dont want to use a metronome, then fine, but dont try to convince everyone that metronomes take out the soul of everything. If people didnt practice to metronomes they would be sloppy and be all over the place.
All i'm saying is that the internal clock is more important, In the studio I understand using a click just not live. I knew there would be haters out there when I did my posts. If you don't. have a good internal clock and you don't. feel the beat inside you, It doesn't. matter how long you spend with a metronome it just not going too happen. you might as well get a drum machine & hit play.
