Full Story: http://www.davecarrollmusic.com/story…

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 Breaks Guitars is the first of those songs.

  1. Fantastic! That’s how to use the Internet to spank the daylights out of these arrogant corporate pigs.

    This talented musician is definitely getting even. United will loose millions over this. I’ll bet all management personnel who refused to compensate him for damage to his guitar get walked.

  2. Expertly and very tastefully done …
    The composition and the band are pro’s for sure.
    Should become a classic video, if not already.
    Enjoyed watching it …..packs a message.
