Game of Thrones Writer George R. R. Martin Crashes Concert and Destroys Guitar
George R. R. Martin really wants everyone to know that he’s not our bitch. The author of A Song of Ice & Fire, the novel series upon which Game of Thrones is based, stormed the stage during a Paul and Storm concert at San Diego Comic-Con to interrupt their parody song, “Write Like the Wind (George R. R. Martin).”
The song pokes fun at the unusually long time gaps between Martin’s novels, and implores him to please finish the series before he dies. While the band was performing the catchy tune at Comic-Con, Martin made a surprise appearance on stage, snatched the lead singer’s guitar, and proceeded to smash it to pieces. Then author Neil Gaiman came out and forced Paul and Storm to admit to Martin that he is, in fact, not their bitch.
Gaiman coined the popular, “George R. R. Martin is not your bitch” phrase back in 2009 in response to a number of letters he had received from angry Martin fans asking if he thought Martin owed it to them to write faster. It would appear that Martin wants to really drive home this point in true ASOIAF-style: through physical violence.
The appearance is pretty epic, and you can view it here. We think the only thing that could have made it any better were if “The Rains of Castamere” began to play right before Martin appeared on stage.
