Leading the Vocals

Ask Katy

Hi Katy, hope all is well. I'm sure you're starting to get very busy! If you get a second, I wonder if you'd be able to answer a question. Somebody posted on our board about Simon and Sting recording the whole version of Band aid's "Do They Know Its Christmas" as a 'guide' for the other singers. It looks like they got their info from Wikipedia.com...not always a reliable source...Do you know if this is true? Kind of intrigued me...I'd never heard that before. Mark.

"Hi Mark. I'd never heard this one, so I was pretty sure it was untrue, but I asked Simon this weekend and he said that yes, he and Sting had laid down the guide vocals for the song. Learn something new every day at this job! Katy"
