Interview: Gus Brandt (of Foo Fighters & Deluna Fest)
By RYAN BRAY    FULL ARTICLE

Gus Brandt, in his own words, sums up his life as “one great rock and roll swindle,” and he’s hardly kidding. From his earliest days as a small time punk rock promoter to his current lot in life as an in-demand tour manager, Brandt has seen, heard, and taken in as much of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle as any one person could possibly withstand over the past 20 years. But while he’s logged a lot of miles on the road, the Foo Fighters’ resident tour manager has circled back to his roots in recent years as the talent booker for the Pensacola-based DeLuna Fest, which now in its third year boasts a lineup featuring the likes of Pearl Jam, the Foo Fighters, Guided by Voices, Superchunk, and many others. We caught up with Brandt while on tour with Tenacious D to talk about life on the road, what it takes to book a summer festival, and living out every rock ‘n’ roll fan’s dream.
