According to TMZ, Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis was trying to enter the Four Seasons in Philadelphia when he was stopped by security. As the singer tried to walk past the guard, a heated shoving match broke out and onlookers ran to join in the fight.

The Rolling Stones were also staying at the hotel and apparently exiting the building as Kiedis walked up. The guard reportedly mistook him as a fan trying to get closer to the band and the confusion led to the brawl.

Once the singer's identity was established, everything began to calm down and the violence never escalated past the point of a high-school wrestling match.

The odd part of the story comes from the fact that both the Four Seasons and the Rolling Stones denied that the guard worked for them. A source close to the Stones says it's possible the bodyguard was hired in Philly to supplement the band's regular security.

Kiedis also gave a statement to TMZ, but didn't acknowledge the incident. "I love the Rolling Stones," he said.
