the few artistic genres where people demand the artist be always exactly who they
were 10,20,20+ years ago. If it's a painter, no one wants the artist to keep painting
the same stuff and having the same beliefs. That would be a sort of artistic death
and is considered a liability and lack of artistic virility. But when a musician grows
up and has different ideas and opinions due to that growth, then they are
"sell outs" and everyone wants to completely discount the early work as
being "fake" and "posing".
