Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has taken to Instagram to share the story of how the band were mistaken for Metallica by Belarus customs officers.
"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."
Rookie mistake, guys. The bands don't even look the same.
