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.

I've insufficient time to write many words, unfortunately, but here are some highlights of what I got up to during a fascinating World Cup month...

Myke Gray played a terrific solo gig at the Islington Academy 2.

Jon Hiseman has finally lost his battle with brain cancer. He was witty, honest, modest and entertaining on both occasions that we spoke.

Joe Bonamassa played Hampton Court Palace. A fantastic location but no grog was allowed in the arena - whoever made that decision, orf with his/her head.

Eddie and I had a day at the Oval watching England beat the Convicts in an ODI, with our pals Neil Pudney and Paul Berry.

My copy of Wishbone Ash: The Vintage Years arrived. Andy Powell sent a lovely email issuing congratulations on "an excellent job" of capturing the "wit, ego, defensiveness, swagger, pride, sentimentality, delusion, mutual respect and humour" of his band's tale in its hardback book.

I attended both days of the Stone Free Festival at London's O2 Arena. Great sets from the Scorps, Megadeth (pictured), Yes featuring ARW, Roger Hodgson, Anathema, Tyketto, Ginger Wildheart and Pete Spiby.

England won their first game against Tunisia, then put six past Panama while the Argies were humiliated. I almost cried with laughter at this image of one of the most odious men on planet earth.
