Just think that even if you suck and **** up horribly, you'll still be the one on stage, which makes you better than everyone in the crowd.

This isn't true, but just pretend like it is

The only thing I'm aware of is just keep doing it over and over again man...possibly have A (one, maybe no more than two) drink before you go on.

If you focus on creating good music and not on the fact that you're on a stage in front of people, then it shouldnt bother you.

What I think is that, if I freak out I'll look like an idiot, this usually keeps me pretty calm. I don't mind being in front of a crowd, so long as I know it, and don't mind whatever I am doing.

The pit knows not about these so called women with their "vaginas." Do not speak of such filth and blasphemy here again or it will be the end of you.

if you have bad eyesight and wear contacts or glasses you could remove them for a couple gigs, just until you're comfortable because without them you cant really see the audience that well, or at least their facial expressions.

I remember how nervous when I played my first show, I forced myself onto the stage and have not felt nervous before a show since, you gotta press on and if you really lock in with the performance it will be exhilirating, you'll never wanna be off the stage again.

this^ there are two things that work best for me. one is the things is knowing how its gonna go down - improvisation is great but your screwed if you dont remember your parts. the other one is just about gathering all of arrogance on stage - just think as said above

It doesn't matter to me anymore. Listen to Stage Fright by Def Lepard, which will relieve any worries ever.
