Ed Sheeran has been one of the most famous musicians in the world for years. However, not everyone likes his work. Recently, Sheeran's music was harshly criticized by the legend of British music, Rod Stewart.

Rod Steward is an iconic figure for rock-roll fans. The musician known for such hits as "I Don't Want Talk About It" and "Forever Young" recently gave an interview to the Times, where he spoke bitterly about Ed Sheeran.

A Times journalist asked Steward if he believed current artists could create timeless music. "I’m sure they are," replied the musician, and he wanted to give some examples, but he forgot the name of the person he would like to mention.

"Oh great, Rod. Well done. He’s British, really talented, and his songs will be around", said Steward. Then the journalist asked if he was talking about Ed Sheeran, but he categorically denied it. "No, not Ed, I don’t know any of his songs, old ginger bollocks. Jesus", Steward commented on Ed Sheeran's music.

Last year, Ed Sheeran released Autumn Variations, and this year, fans in the US will be able to hear him live on his "Mathematics Tour." British, during this event, will play in Boston and Napa Valley.
