Singer Paul Weller recalled the “horrible” Band Aid’s music video shooting experience “Do they know it’s Christmas?” in 1984. Weller claimed that “Everyone was beating the toilet”.
Weller appeared in the video alongside known names like Bono, Phil Collins and George Michael. The track was composed by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure.
The video features footage of the star performers recording their parts for the song at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London.

Weller “horrible” experience
“(The shooting of the video) was horrible”, Weller said in a recent Q&A session. “Everyone got away with cutting in the toilets.”
“I probably would have liked it in the 90s but I was not in all this at the time”, Weller added. “I was totally out of my comfort zone”.
Recently, Paul Weller said he always gets very nervous for the hour or two leading up to a show. He also added that it was weird to adapt to going out on stage without having a drink.
“It’s almost a weird thing because, just before going on stage, especially in the hour before, I’m in pieces”, the former Jam leader said.
“I’m so nervous and so I don’t want to be there and I want to go home, then a few minutes after being on stage, as soon as the first song hits, I automatically feel like it’s completely there that I I’m supposed to be “, He continued.
“When I finally stopped drinking, it took me at least two years to get used to this feeling of going on stage totally sober and upright”, Weller added.
“But it took two good years to get comfortable, because it was really weird at the beginning ”, He continued. “I’d be on stage and notice so many things, like there’s a guy in the front row wearing a green shirt or something, and now I don’t feel that at all.”
“I drink a cup of tea these days. In the past, I would have done it, but I don’t.
