Downtime In The Trailer

Actor Sam Neill, who is starring in the US television series Alcatraz, has convinced his famous friends to compile Top 10 lists of their favourite songs, publishing them on the website for his boutique winery, Two Paddocks. Compilation lists from stars include Sir Ian McKellen (who lists his No.1 as ‘When I’m Cleaning Windows’ by George Formby) and Stephen Fry (whose eclectic list is topped by Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass’s Spanish Flea) as well as Willem Dafoe and Marianne Faithfull. “One of the things I do on the website now, when I’ve got downtime in my trailer, old friends that I’ve worked with and so on, I get them to do their top 10 records — we’re up to 57 [people] now. I think the last one was Fred Schepisi, so there’s all sorts of people,” Neill said.
