Indeed what I exactly said as my first reaction hearing CIIC was "I wish I asked for something else in life."
It's an expression Turkish people use when one of their wishes they made without too much thought is granted all of a sudden that if they wished something bigger and greater (like winning $100k for instance) instead could have been granted. So, we say I wish I asked for something else in life, then it would have been granted in place of this one.
Anyway, simply put I was quite stoked because I did not know they still made music. I am deeply moved by Savatage - both early and later years. I am very intrigued by their creativity and the tonal changes they do incorporate quite dramatically.
Have been a fan at large for many many years to come.... I will make sure not to miss their show.
they are NOT any of the original members of Savatage, though. Don't get your hopes up too high!
