Ash star's delight at Abbey Road

Tim Wheeler helped write the soundtrack to the film Ashes

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

Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
