(Classic Rock) Red Hot Chili Peppers were mistaken for Metallica by customs officials at Belarus Airport in Eastern Europe. The band were called into an office by airport staff and asked to autograph CDs and photos - but to their surprise, the items were Metallica-related.

Chili's bassist Flea says: "We were called into a custom officials' office at an airport in Belarus and they asked us to sign a bunch of Metallica CDs 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 Fire with Metallica once. I love Metallica anyways, but I'm no Robert Trujillo." See the photo here.
