Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has shared a weird and hilarious story about the band’s awkward interaction with Belarusian customs...

“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,” explained Flea while showing off evidence of this unlikely autograph session. “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.”
