“By having a song that explained what was happening to me, while it was happening, that gave the audience permission to think about it. They didn’t have to feel bad for me because I was nervous, they could experience that with me and we were all one big, happy, nervous, uncomfortable family” – Joe Kowan, about “The Stage Fright Song”
