United vs Guitar
If you are a musician and you fly then you may want to think carefully about who you book your flight with. Dave Carroll of the Sons of Maxwell flew United. United broke his Taylor guitar. United refused to pay for it. So he promised them three songs, this is the first one. I'm looking forward to the other two, if they are as good as this.
Revenge song or not, it's still good music. Full story below the video.
I think the score now is Dave Carroll 1 United 0.
Full Story here: - In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didn't deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say no to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise. Sons of Maxwell.
