The ballad of David Carroll strums on as the Canadian musician’s tussle with United Airlines, which resulted in his “United Breaks Guitars” YouTube smash, is still biting him in the ass.
The New York Times offered a little follow-up on Carroll’s life these days, and from the looks of it, history’s repeating itself. Carroll tells the NYT that the airline lost his bag on Sunday, in turn telling him to wait over an hour at Denver International Airport so he could be present when the “delayed” luggage came down the conveyor belt. And as you guessed, the bag was MIA, causing yet another United apology. “We will fully investigate what regretfully happened,” a spokeswoman said.
Though he was finally reunited with bag on Wednesday, why does Carroll keep taking United? Songwriting inspiration perhaps? Free rides? Whatever the case, we’ll likely have United opus #3 to look forward to.
