Founders of 1984 charity plan new version of hit

The founders of Band Aid, the 1984 charity effort that raised millions for Ethiopian famine relief, plan a new version of the single "Do They Know It's Christmas," a British newspaper reported.

The Sun tabloid said Wednesday that Bob Geldof and Midge Ure had approached top British acts including Coldplay, The Darkness, Robbie Williams and Dido to appear on the single, which would be released before Christmas.
