Ash frontman Tim Wheeler says it was a dream come true to hear his film soundtrack at Abbey Road.

The musician has co-written the soundtrack to British film Ashes, a contemporary film noir in which Ray Winstone plays a man suffering from Alzheimer's.

Tim got involved with the soundtrack for the film, which also stars Jim Sturgess, after his father suffered from Alzheimer's before he died.

He said: "We did the strings at Abbey Road. We had all the music, it had been approved, and then we heard it in Abbey Road.

"It came to life. It was a dream come true to work there. I'd been there before, but never worked there."

He added: "You can't help imagining all the things that have happened there."

:: Ashes is available on DVD now

You have a tendency to rest on your laurels when you have lots of free time. A demanding schedule forces you to step up your game. If your energy starts to flag, make time for daily exercise. It seems counterintuitive, but moving your body can actually refresh you. Working with a partner is strongly advised. A collaborator will attend to practical matters.More
