United breaks Guitars

Canadian Musician Dave Carroll had a bad experience with his guitar.

"We were sitting at the back of the plane with the band, and a woman who didn't know we were musicians yells out, 'Oh, my God they're throwing guitars outside'," Carroll told local media.

After months of trying in vain to get the airline to pay compensation and help repair the instrument worth 3,500 Canadian dollars ($A3,850), Carroll changed tack.

So here wrote this song.

A miilion (internet) hits later he has a hit!!

G'day PeterB.

Poor Irving Leroux has only had under 600 hits, whereas Dave Carroll has had 1.6m in a few days.

Let's hope that one of Irv's hits was Oprah herself and she decides to help him.
