United Airlines Breaks Guitars and Other Music (Video)

The songs I like are those that speak to me, tell me a story.

I love to write; I love the power of words. I can’t carry much of a tune, and what I can carry, you wouldn’t want to hear. Just because I really can’t sing, doesn’t mean I don’t listen. The problem is, the songs I like are those that speak to me, tell me a story. Those that repeat a few meaningless words don’t speak to me, don’t call to my heart and feelings.

It’s sometimes a bit embarrassing to admit who my favorite singers are – my children certainly laugh (except for my oldest daughter, who shares my love of Harry Chapin, Garth Brooks, etc.). Every time Shmulik hears an old English song on the radio, he says, “oh look, Ima, one of your songs.”

Garth Brooks has retired and Harry Chapin is long gone but I think I found a new singer. He isn’t famous yet – well, a little, but he should be more famous. He’s got an amazing story that started several years ago when he got on a plane, only to hear that United Airlines workers were throwing his band’s guitars…his guitar, that is…his TAYLOR guitar…that cost him $3,500…around.

The expensive guitar was badly damaged; United refused to take responsibility. And the rest, as they say, is history. Dave Carroll tried to work through their system but after almost a month, he did it his way. He promised he’d make three videos telling his story, and he did. The full story is posted here: United Breaks Guitars.

He’s got other songs. He came to Israel last week to speak at our conference and he sang several. So many of them touched my heart and reminded me that there are still people who put meaning and stories in song. As a present, Dave gave me two of his CDs. I keep listening to them, hoping others will realize how talented he is; how HE should be on the radios of the world. Before his music career was boosted by United Airlines negligence, Dave and his brother were firefighters. One song – The 911 Song has been made into a video.

It’s just inspiring. I can’t tell you yet which one of his songs are my favorite yet; I can only tell you as I drive from client to client, my car is once again filled with music. Watch this video, and you’ll see why. His website (if you want to buy his amazing music), is www.davecarrollmusic.com.
