I agree. At the level where it's show business the look and image is important. And I never saw the Who, the Stones, or the Beatles use a clip on. Funny thing is I'm old enough that I actually saw all three of those groups. So when I started, all there was available was tuning forks and really expensive Peterson strobes that I'd only seen and used in studios. So I still have a strong appreciation for clip on's. I can understand people getting annoyed by clip on's but I'm not one of them.
