Dear all:

[Wenner Media chief digital officer] David Kang and I are very pleased — and I am very proud — to announce that Gus Wenner, after leading the re-launch re-design effort for our website, will now continue by heading up the overall operations of RollingStone.com.

Hopefully this doesn’t get in the way of Wenner’s and Scout Willis’ — offspring of John McClane and Demi Moore — alternative country band, affectionately called Scout + Gus.

Don’t let them change you Gus!
