How did you transition from synth to rock oriented bands?

How did you make the transition from working with artists like Eno, Talking Heads to Jane`s and AIC? A lot of times, engineers/producers can get pigeonhold when they have been extremely successful with a particular genre of music. Did the more rock oriented bands come to you, or did you actively seek them out? Were the labels ok with you producing/engineering certain bands or did you get a lot of push-back at first?

That is a simple to answer question. Having worked with the Rolling Stones I knew I wanted to work with guitars! i learned so much with the Stones it was a natural progression (or regression)
Also working with Frank Zappa had a big influence on me. By the way, before Talking Heads I had recorded a lot of Punk Bands.
