    I was wondering if any of you had any 'rituals' or anything like that that you always do before you go on stage.

    I don't really have anything like that except smoking a siggarete and taking a piss. :p And sometimes when I have to kick in the first song I play the intro before I'm plugged in (I play the electric guitar) just to make sure I still know it haha.

    Does anyone do thing like that?

    Drink a shot of whiskey and play around with a few riffs. I think everyone has their rituals.

    I never really had a ritual. I make sure that I am warmed up before I go on, and then when it is time to go, I just go out and play. Generally I am pretty relaxed before I go on so I guess I never really felt a need for one.
  4. Well when I played at Lincoln hall I pretty much just ate a ton of fruit for energy and I've been doing the same ever since

    I usually run some scales on my guitar unplugged to loosen my fingers up well sitting with my band having a couple drinks! Then my singer and I like to go out and have a little puff before it is time to hit the stage.

    I remind myself that the nerves are just my body's way of saying I care about the outcome. Then I remind myself who the fuck I am and why I'm there. Deep breath. Big smile. Showtime.

    Yeah, once had an Ozzy moment lol...
    Just made noise and moved a lot by the guitarist. He smiled and broke into a bit of a mini solo so I could catch up.
    He knew some chuckles afterwards for that one. From all of them. For a few days.

    I tune Irmi's fiddle and violin. With some difficulty because I've never touched either in my life.

    Then I get a blowjob.
