Rumour has it Adele didn’t even pick up her phone when Sir Bob was looking for singers for Do They Know It’s Christmas Time? and it’s unlikely Damon Albarn will be buying a copy after criticising his fundraising efforts. He told Channel 4 News in the UK: “There are problems with our idea of charity, especially these things that create a media frenzy where some of that essential communication is lost and it starts to feel like… if you give money you solve the problem, and really sometimes giving money creates another problem.” Actually, what’s key is how cash is managed, but it is needed. In the words of Sir Bob, “It doesn’t matter if you hate all the artists. You have to buy this song.”
