This journal of the comings'n'goings and musings'n'enthusings of Dave Ling will be updated daily - except after days of stress and nights of excess.
Wednesday 27th February
One of my fave 'new' bands - The Struts at Shepherd's Bush. Great performance but way too much waffle from Freddie Mercury wannabe Luke Spiller.
Tuesday 26th February
Sensational gig from Steely Dan and Steve Winwood at Wembley Arena, an extra surprise at the end when Elliott Randall walked on for 'Reelin' In The Years', a solid gold classic tune that reportedly features Jimmy Page's all-time favourite guitar solo.
Saturday 23rd February
Blue Öyster Cult made a triumphant return to Hammersmith, a hallowed venue in which I last saw them play in 1984 for two nights on the trail of The Revölution By Night (supported by Aldo Nova).
Sunday 17th February
A comfortable, professional win to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. Nice one, Roy.
Thursday 7th February
King King at Koko. You realise that time is racing along when one of your fave newer bands is out on a tenth anniversary tour. Ulp!
Wednesday 6th February
An emotional visit to the house of Lee Kerslake for a big story that appeared in Classic Rock #261.
Sunday 3rd February
Fulham must hate Jeff Schlupp. Three more priceless points. It was time for a small sherry... or three.
