You could combine approaches: use a drum machine for
extremely simple parts (just kick, maybe) and play
your fills live into the loop. That way, you've got
midi tempo *with* the live performance aspect of
playing the drum parts.

I used to do something similar on demo recordings
10-15 years ago: my drumming was sloppy, but the drum
machine I had at the time sounded stiff and
mechanical. By assigning simple steady parts to the
machine, and playing the 'Keith Moon' parts manually,
the end result was quite interesting.
