United Airlines breaks Guitar

details from :- http://www.davecarrollmusic.com/

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

But United Airlines are much more out of pocket in this case.但是,美国联合航空公司得多了口袋里,这起案件。

The company has lost 10per cent of their share value – a massive $180million – after being blamed for damaging a musician’s guitar.该公司已失去10per以上的股票价值-大规模$ 180million -后,被指责为破坏音乐家的吉他。

Carroll told the BBC today: ‘I asked myself: “if Michael Moore was a singer-songwriter, what would he do? and I gathered my tools together and said I would write three songs about the airline, make videos about the airline and share them with the world.

He said he was amazed to get so many hits – he had hoped to receive a million over the course of the year.

His song has helped him financially though – it is currently the 20th best-selling track on the Itunes music sale website in Canada.
