new twitter from Brian:

briangaslight "No one fly amaerican airlines, if they break your guitar that you wrote every record on... They don't cover it. Sweet!"
"That's American Airlines, just so my spelling doesn't lead you gentle people astray."

gaslight_anthem If you fly American Airlines they will break your guitar and then say they aren't responsable. That seems fair, If your the devil.

Doesn't sound good :S

I assume it's the accoustic he played in LA.

That was nice guitar and looked expensive too.
I'd be really pissed if someone would break my guitar. A guitar and the player almost have a relation to each other.

Gaslight Anthem Frontman's Prized Guitar Broken by American Airlines

With so many commercials touting excellent baggage handling services, you would think airlines would have gotten better at not destroying instruments. But like so many musicians before him, Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon recently had a guitar broken by careless employees. In this case, American Airlines cracked the headstock of an acoustic that Fallon used to write nearly all of his songs, including the ones on their upcoming third album, 'American Slang.'

"I checked it and they just did what they do -- they threw it," Fallon tells Spinner. "I took it to them and they were like 'Well, if the case isn't broken, we're not responsible for what's inside.' I said, 'If you wrap China up in a box and you smash it to pieces, you're not responsible?' and they're like 'yeah.' I was like 'That's awesome!'"

If you're confused by American's odd distinction, you're not alone. "I wish I could get that policy, because with bar fights, I would never have gotten a ticket when I was young," Fallon says. "I could've punched someone in the face and been like 'Hey, your teeth fell out. I didn't damage your face, though.' I wouldn't have gotten in trouble at all when I was a kid."

Though American Airlines has refused to pay for it, Fallon still has some unfinished business with them. "The funny thing is, they just asked us to do a feature in their in-flight magazine like two days ago," he tells Spinner, laughing. "I was like 'I don't think so!' Or, 'Yes, I will do a feature and talk about this!'"

Whether or not that comes to fruition, Fallon says the band's trusted guitar repairman thinks he can fix the acoustic, which has already survived some hard times. "Before I got it, it was actually in a house that burned down and it survived. Like a whole wall of a house entirely burned down and this guitar was leaning on the other side of the wall," Fallon says. "I've never had a broken headstock before. Some people say it's not quite the same, some say it's fine and some say it doesn't work at all. I guess I'll find out."

The Gaslight Anthem's 'American Slang,' the follow-up to 2008's acclaimed 'The '59 Sound,' is due out June 15 on via SideOneDummy.

Me too.



How many airlines let you bring your instruments as handbaggage? I bought a bass when I was in london like two months ago and was really scared it was gonna break during the flight but I could take it with me on the plane and that was no big deal to them (british airlines). Has anybody similar experiences?

^I've wondered that myself. A lot of planes have a sort of closet at the front, but I don't know how they determine what can go there or not.

The Airborne Toxic Event have had the same problem with Delta Airlines.
They have publicly stated numerous times the Delta Airlines breaks music instruments.

That's why I carry my guitars on every flight. They have an on board closet they can put guitars in if you don't want to put it in the overhead (don't ever do that)

I don't like my guitar up there rattling around with other people's luggage. I have a soft case, so that influences my decision to an extent too. People tend to get pissed at large guitars taking up an entire overhead, in my experience so I stick to the closet where it's safe.
