Remember the story of Dave Schneider - It has a happy ending!
A musician’s worst nightmare came true at Detroit’s Metro Airport.
Dave Schneider, lead singer of the band the Zambonis, cares so much about his classic 1965 Gibson ES-335 that he carries it on board.
But recently, while boarding a flight from Buffalo to Detroit, he was stopped and told he had to check the guitar.
Here's video from the airport:
Schneider tells Yahoo News that “As his feet touched the ground in Detroit, Schneider said he already knew something had gone horribly wrong. Sure enough, he wrote on Facebook, a "musicians worst nightmare came true."
There at the gate was his guitar — stuck between the service elevator and a loading dock rail making "this crazy sound" of "metal on metal."
We talked with Dave after the show on Tuesday -- and he's getting a NEW guitar from Gibson PLUS the original (which wasn't destroyed - just damaged) is being repaired for free!
