United Breaks Guitars

Have you seen this You Tube video?

It's hilarious!!! (and unfortunately true)

It's a song written by the Canadian band, Sons of Maxwell who witnessed United Airlines employees damaging their guitars. After a year of negotiations United Airlines has refused to compensate the band members. So they wrote this song

Full Story: http://www.davecarrollmusic.com/story/united-breaks-guitars - 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 didnt 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.

We say:

Way to go

Sons of Maxwell!!!

I hate it when big Corporate America (or Canada) takes advantage of the regular people and I absolutely hate getting bad service in a service based industry!

So far the video has had well over 1,200,000 veiws in just a few days.

And it's a pretty good song too! ;)

We are going to check out some of their other music.

Hope you liked this one!
