keeping tempo steady live no met
do famous drummers do this or do they use a met?

A few use metrenomes, but most don't. As far as I'm aware, a lot will only use metrenomes if they need the song to be 100% accurate, like if recorded synth or something is playing throughout the whole song.

Some use metronomes, if they have to change time signatures in songs. Going from 4/4 to 9/16 will sprain your mind.

A lot of pop/hip hop acts will use metronomes or a time keeping beat of sorts for their drummers to keep everything tight. It's really only anything that uses samples or an electronic track live, stuff like that requires a metronome. Rock bands vary, I've seen some use metronomes on a few occasions and not on others.

Basically what Whoomit said

It seems to depend on the genre, most of the bands I know that play to a click are metal bands. Avenged Sevenfold play to a click I believe, Periphery do, and so do Billy Clyro because I heard it going just before they started there set. Animals as Leaders run everything (lights and stuff) through a laptop next to Matt so they will have to play to a metronome to sync up with it.

Saying that Dave Lombardo didn't play to a click until 1993 I think he said. It kind of depends on the genre, using the metronome can be a bit of a groove killer for something like funk or jazz.
