Singer Lionel Richie admits he used to be terrified being on stage and it took him five to eight years to get over the fright and be comfortable.┬áRichie brought up the subject on “The Drew Barrymore Show”, when host Barrymore asked, “I actually heard a story that when you were in the (band) Commodores you were sort of hesitant to be a front man. Is this true?”

The singer replied, “That is so true. To show you how terrified I was during the Freshman talent show when the curtains opened, I literally walked off with the curtains,”

He added that his fright would be severe. “It took me about maybe five to eight years to really get comfortable on stage, but I suffered from a tremendous amount of stage fright. Actually, it was the Jackson 5 tour that took me out of that little nervousness,” Richie said on the show, which airs on Zee Cafe in India.
