I remember one time Soapbox Symphony was on tour somewhere, flying Delta, we couldn’t fit Kyle’s hand drum on the plane so we had to gate check it. We politely asked the baggage handler to be super careful as it was an expensive instrument. Instead he threw it down the slide. We watched as the drum, almost in slow motion, spun cartwheels down the slide towards the tarmac. At that point we vowed to never fly Delta again. A vow I kept… ’till the next time they ended up being the cheapest flight.
Peace, hope and love.
