It looks like now MB is pulling biography and pictures from the artist id tag (if you see use multiple artist splitter(+ sign in tag editor) it uses that entry). As I use that Id tags to make MB display band members and their instruments I don't have picture results. Using album artist for searching and pulling artist pictures would solve that problem.
Bump it up if you see this to be a useful change, maybe as an option....

What if the album artist is Various Artists?
it doesnt look at album artist. The change made was that when all split artists are performers (which are excluded), then the fall back is to use the display artist

That makes more sense.

I list all band members as Artists in my tags ( not in the performer / role format, but as Artist).  Will I continue getting pictures of individual band members in the rotation? I quite enjoy that.

the change is for the very specific edge case i described - no changes as far you are concerned
