"Our Illustrious Downfall"


Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about something lately...namely, this wonderful phrase that brought laughs from everyone when Eric used it in Chicago. He prefaced an intro to one of the songs with a story, which he began with the words "Before our illustrious downfall..."

There's definitely a title of something in there somewhere..

That was right after “ Its cold outsideâ€. Wally talks about how they play that song every winter in Cleveland ( and he’s glad they do ). Then Eric says “ Back before we recorded, and began our illustrious downfall, we used to play in clubs and we were a pretty darn good cover band, and we made money then. Then we had our hit, it wasn’t that bad. Anyway, we’d like to play one of those songs now â€, the band then goes into Ticket to Ride.
