Today, July 6 2019, is the 10th anniversary of the blockbuster video United Breaks Guitars, which remained at the top of the most watched music video on YouTube for a month. For those three people here who have never heard of this, here's a history and link to the video.

If they treat passengers like this, I wouldn't expect them to treat guitars any better.


Passenger being "re-accommodated" from a United flight.

Real airlines just keep raising the stakes for someone to give up their seats. Jeez. I got a $400 travel voucher and was rebooked in first class because no one would give up their seat. I bet if United had offered $1,000 for someone to give up their seat, it would have happened. How stupid can they be?

Oh right...apparently, very stupid. Never mind.

When I was doing DJ gigs in Germany, I always took my Peavey Milano guitar. It was/is indestructible. It and Cher's career are the only things that would survive a nuclear war.
