Local Halifax band The Sons of Maxwell, has struck a nerve with it’s brilliant video, United Breaks Guitars.

If you have ever traveled by air with your guitar you will certainly relate to this video. I can’t remember the number of times that I waited for luggage at the end of a flight, in angst wondering if my guitar was going to make it. Luckily for me, it always did.

Well, in Dave Carroll’s case, his beloved Taylor 710 guitar didn’t make it. The Sons of Maxwell were on tour in Nebraska and while sitting on the tarmac waiting for all the luggage to be loaded, Dave heard the woman behind him scream, “My god, they’re throwing guitars out there”. The bass player looked out the window and saw his bass flying. The guitar before had been Dave’s Taylor. You can read the rest of the story here: United Breaks Guitars.

After a year or so of run-arounds and excuses Dave made this video. Check it out. It’s genius. Apparently, there are two more videos coming. Stay tuned.
