Default Re: Is it fair to play live with a metronome?

I saw Queensryche play in 1992(?), Long Beach Arena, and they played the entire "Operation Mindcrime" from start to finish. And they played with a click track. All the lighting on that tour, was, for the most part, computer controlled. And the big projection screen images. And I'm sure that "technology" was used before then, and that was 18 years ago.
I saw Pink Floyd in 1994, at the Pasadena Rose Bowl, "The Division Bell" tour, and I'd bet that was also done to a click. Look at the shows Nine Inch Nails, Tool, and Marilyn Manson throw. All that stuff is sequenced, and everyone gets the in ear click. That's the beauty of the in ear monitor.
No one holding a gun to anyone's head, however. If you don't want to use a click, don't. If you do, that's fine.
