I agree. He does exactly what his fans want to see. And as has been pointed out he and his bands have sold a lot of albums.. which means he has a lot of fans!
Lets not forget around 60% of people are primarily visual. They like to see things more than hear them. I imagine most non instrumentalists love the fact he is so animated.
Personally I don't love him, but I don't hate him either. I'd love to command his power on and off stage, as well as his money!
Course, it's a good thing he gets free cymbals......
