When you’re the guitarists of one of the most most popular bands in the world today, the whole world wants to be your friend. In the case of Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Slash, that notion got just a bit too real and personal.

A TMZ report claims that Slash has obtained a restraining order against a man that had claimed to be his friend on multiple occasions, while neither Slash, nor anyone in his entourage know who exactly this man is. The restraining order was filed after this alleged man tried to gain access into Slash’s property.

The first attempt was during a Super Bowl party, in which the man had told Slash’s girlfriend that he was friends with the guitarist. After denying him entry into the house, the man suddenly got angry, ringing the doorbell multiple times, and destroying the security cameras.

On a different attempt, the man apparently had returned two weeks later at an “invitation only” party. After he was spotted, and after claiming to be Slash’s friend was again, the man was denied once again. As a result, he went on to wait in the parking lot, on top of his motorcycle, revving the engine.
