He knows almost all the bands on our poster personally, so when Gus goes to William Morris Endeavor (Booking agency) they are familiar with him.

SM: Gus gets the lion's share of the credit for that. We've had some ups and downs trying to get people to believe in our festival. When Gus walked into the room it added a lot of credibility to what we were trying to do. He goes back with Pearl Jam to when they were traveling in a van. It's just amazing the relationships that he has built.

Foo Fighters: Q, June '08

  While Rodney Johnson does machines, tour manager Gus Brandt does people. From making sure the band's two dressing rooms (the Rock Room and the Family Room) are stocked with the correct brands of nutrition bars (Tigers Milk), peanut butter (365 Organic) and strawberry jam (Smucker's), to getting the Foos onstage on time, Brandt is the man upon whose shoulders rests responsibility for the smooth operation of the rock tour's home away from home.   "There are 100 laminates a day, 200 sticky passes," he says.
