Live Aid works 'by the noise you create around it'

Sir Bob Geldof has defended Band Aid 30 and said despite criticism from artists like Lily Allen, the fundraiser works by creating "noise around it".

Speaking to Good Morning Britain, the Boomtown Rats singer said "of course" there would people who did not like the artists singing, but Band Aid 30 had "a huge cross-section of the biggest selling British artists" and was for a good cause.
