Traffic/Steve Winwood

In the late 60s/early 70s, Steve Winwood and Traffic were all androgynous and artsy and singing about boys in high heels. Around 1980, Winwood’s amazing “While You See a Chance” helped me survive being a teenager. By the late 80s, he was singing “Roll With It.” Is there some rule that every British art rocker eventually has to sell out?
