    • Hi Paul, that was a stupid mistake by me. Thanks for pointing it out. I have corrected it now. I knew it was Verdict as I had read your Internet report on the RAR gig, but made the mistake somehow nevertheless. Sacha lives in pandemic isolation: Cheap ‘n’ Nasty and Miami Beach Girls ex-bass player Heleen and a roadie take care of her with shopping. Good to hear from you! I will email you with more info.
