    They busted a pro's Taylor?

    True revenge won't be had until there's a 757 or an L1011 busted up in pieces all over the tarmac. And even that be a lopsided trade.

    It was an amazing and great idea for that song. Wonderfully executed too.

    If United was smart, they would give him something to spin this around and endorse United + do some program like JetBlue's bill of rights. Turn negative PR into excellent positive PR.

    I kinda hope he sticks to his guns and keeps hammering at United. The publicity his band is getting out of this is worth more that the $3500 for a new guitar.

    How did I miss this? Thanks Lox for sharing. I cannot watch this all at once though because my sides hurt.

    That was great, very well executed indeed and got the right message to them. They might next be on Dave and Conan, lol

    Sons of Maxwell is now on my Facebook, and they posted earlier today referencing that L.A. Times article about United now being eager to do the right thing. (HAH!)

    Just thinking what if this incident never happened at all. United could have hired this guy and produced the video and it cost about $5000. They make it right by paying for the guitar and United looks like the good guys all for only about $5000. Much cheaper then paying for an add in a newspaper

    Vinny, being a cynic I thought the same thing. Guerrilla Marketing 101, but the story says it took place a year ago and they still hadn't taken care of the problem. That doesn't look good on them... unless they are rolling out some sort of "Passenger Advocate" program due to the 'unacceptable response' this passenger had with them.

    We'll see...

    I love this guy and what he's accomplished. United should be put out of business. They suck HUGE, I've been on a rant against United Airlines for years. Love that he got the world's attention and that United is sweating over it.
    Peace,

    Maybe he should offer to sell the rights to the song to United for a big pile of cash?

    I love that video. My question is this:
    If United ends up paying for his guitar, will they ask Obama Corporation for a bailout? With no one flying thse days and the airlines in trouble, I figure $3,500 to equal about 78 suitcase fee charges.

    Eh, if he doesn't make it in music, he's at least got a noggin' for marketing.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    This is a feel good video, this one man and his small group made a name for himself, if I see him on the streets I will remember him as the poor man whos guitar was savagely broken by united....
