Musicians

Ok. I want to start this by giving the disclaimer I have never met anyone super A-list famous before.  But like alot of people, I have spent brief amounts of time with lesser known musicians (like metal musicians more popular in certain parts of the world)...and like most people, I feel nervous before encountering them because of anticipatory anxiety. Yes i KNOW they pay bills like us, burp, fart, use the toilet etc like the rest of us so i really hate idolizing these people. In my defense, I have had some unusual encounters with some musicians so maybe that makes it worse in my case?
Anyway, meeting up with these types of musicians in 4 hours AND lodging with them, so i am very excited but a nervous wreck at the same time.  All these 'what ifs' keep bombarding me. Advice please???
Thanks.

That's awesome you are staying with a musician. From my experience meeting famous people and musicians, the anxiety leaves pretty much a few seconds in, at least for me. I usually say after the first few nerve wracking moments, there's a calm that comes over me after they actually speak to me. I sometimes pretend they are not famous and just some random person. Keep a conversation going and if they want a drink, guage if you should get it or if they'll get their own. If you become their butler from being so nervous, it'll get awkward.

Thanks for the response!! The nervous feeling ended up going away moments before seeing these guys, and i was pretty relaxed all weekend with them. Of course, more unusual, interesting experiences occurred LOL, so maybe these events are just unique for me and I should accept that. Hoping to become less (anticipatory) nervous as time goes on because it seems I have seen it all before at this point!
