    The fugitive task force is looking for Ronnie Williams Jr. of Sciotoville for fraud. He has convinced 3 local churches that he is Ed Sheeran and even went as far as performing The Shape Of You in front of Christ Community Church last Sunday. When the pastor was asked why he believed the real Ed Sheeran would perform for 35 dollars and a sandwich, he said he just assumed he had fell on tough times. If you have any information as to Ronnie’s whereabouts, message us immediately.

    I did it for just a beer and sandwiches!

    At the BlueHaus sessions, players got a free beer, and sandwiches were brought out for the musicians towards the end of the evening. I don't know if this tradition will continue at the new locale, first session is March 5.

    I was gonna say. Musicians tend to perform for much less than 35 bucks and a sammich these days. He was lucky the gigs didn't expect him to make sandwiches for the churchgoers too!

    As happy as it makes me to see that Layne Staley is still alive, he really needs to get off the crystal meth and stop pretending to be Ed Sheeran.

    $35 and a sandwich? OK, brass tacks: what kind of sandwich, and does that include avocado and a side of chips?
