United Breaks Guitars

I guess a lot of people would sympathize with this guy’s predicament. Musician Dave Carroll was unfortunate enough to witness his $3,500 guitar being damaged by some careless United Airlines baggage handlers. To make matters worse, the airline refused to compensate him for the damage. After several frustrating months, Dave hit back the only way he could – by writing songs and making videos about his bad experience. So, here is Dave and his band performing “United Breaks Guitars”: Dave has promised to release two more songs in quick succession Hil. Published July 8th, 2009 in Music.
