I personally can say that I draw huge influence from Chad and I think his playing is what everything is about, feel, groove and passion.
Of course he isn't for everyone and there will be hates but what musician doesnt have theirs haters.
Take a look at this video of Chad playing Readymade from Stadium Arcadium at a Clinic live in Northampton, U.K
There is sure as hell feel, groove and passion in this performance.
Just my 2 cents,
