Bravo. It would behoove all of us to attempt to take this attitude. There is so much more to appreciate if we just broaden our horizons. Or at the very least, realize that just because we don't particularly like something doesn't mean that it is inherently bad. Taste is personal. Chances are good that if a drummer is famous enough for you to know his name then a significant number of people are getting something out of his music.
