When a customs official tells you your part of the band Metallica, I guess you’re part of the band Metallica.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers were mistaken for Metallica at the Belarus airport and asked to sign memorabilia. Flea posted the story on his Instagram page.
“We were called into customs officials office at an airport in Belarus and they asked us to sign a bunch of Metallica cd’s and photos. We tried to explain to them that we weren’t Metallica but they insisted that we sign anyway. They had the power. Well I did play fight fire with with with Metallica once. I love Metallica anyways but I’m no Robert Trujillo.”
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently on tour promoting their new album The Getaway.
