Red Hot Chili Peppers Asked to Autograph Metallica Items
"We tried to explain to them that we weren't Metallica but they insisted that we sign anyway."
Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea says he ended up autographing some Metallica items following a mix-up at an airport in Belarus.
Flea has posted a picture on his Instagram account of him signing his name on a Metallica album, a DVD and pictures of the band.
He writes that the Chili Peppers tried to explain to the customs officials who asked for the autographs that they had the wrong band, "but they insisted that we sign anyway."
Flea says he did play a song with Metallica once, but adds that he's no Robert Trujillo, Metallica's bassist.
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.
