Ed Sheeran’s old management said he’d fail unless he dyed his hair black
Ed Sheeran has done exceptionally well by any standards, so if someone had, say, signed him once, then quit and let him go because they thought he’d be a failure… well they’d be pretty gutted right now wouldn’t they.
Such a team exist.
Ed has had his current manager, Stuart Camp since 2011, and Camp has now told a story about the management team Ed had before him:
“The other management ac¬tually resigned from him because they said he wasn’t going anywhere,” he told the Straight Up podcast. “He had to drop the looping pedal, dye his hair black and give up the rapping.”
That’s up there with not signing the Beatles.
