Yes, a lot of popular songs are very simple...however, this does not mean that these musicians do not know their theory. Most of them do...and it is years and years of practice that have allowed them to get there. It is like the argument against guitar lessons...a lot of people say that a lot of good guitarists have been self-taught but fail to realize the magnitude of talent and the effort these musicians have put in.
Those musicians who make it without any "theoretical" knowledge are tremendously talented individuals...and I do not count myself fortunate enough to be amidst them which is why I concentrate on musical theory as well so this would give me a slight advantage because I could come to know something someone else took years to discover.
It is important, in the end, to make good music. No one will care how much more you know or how little you know if you can make them tap to your tune.
