Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special guest!!
You may have seen today's special guest on the news, but this is just too good not to pass it on.
This guy (Dave Carole) and his band (Sons of Maxwell) were flying on United Airlines. One of the other passengers saw the baggage handlers throwing guitars out of the baggage compartment. They belonged to the guy. Sure enough, his Taylor guitar was broken. He tried for about a year to get United Airlines to repair...Nor Replace...just pay for the repair. he got absolutely no where.
SO, he wrote a song about the experience and posted it on You Tube. It became an overnight sensation. Even CNN and MSNBC heard about it and did a commentary on it. Of course United Airlines THEN offered to pay for the guitar after it received a LOT of negative feedback. The guy told them that it was too late for that and if they wanted to do anything, just take the money they would have used and donate it to a charity of their choice.
Since then, I believe he has received offers from guitar manufacturers to repair and even replace his guitar at no charge.
United says they are using the song for training purposes to improve their customer service. HAHA.
Anyway, today's special guest is his video. He posted it about a week ago and already has over 2 million views! If you are interested, after the video I am also posting the CNN clip.
Have a great day.....and if you're traveling, don't forget....United breaks Guitars!
