Dan Weiss will forever be known as the creator of Game of Thrones, but did you also know he could shred?
The showrunner recently found himself in a room with guitar-weilding greats including Audioslave/Rage Against the Machine icon Tom Morello, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme. After noodling on Game of Thrones inspired Sigil Collection Guitars from The Fender Custom Shop, and receiving some playing notes from the show's composer Ramin Djawadi (who can also wail), Weiss called in an unlikely sixth member to get in on the action: Brad Paisley.
After Bettencourt suggested the country star "sprinkle some fairy dust" on the hard rockin' rendition of the show's iconic theme song, the six-piece got to playing. Djawadi led the charge as Morello kept the top melodic line, and each musician was given his turn to add a little flare with his own short solo (who knew Brad Paisley could rock so hard!). Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in that room.
Watch the all-star guitar ensemble give the Game of Thrones theme song a hard rock makeover below.
The Game of Throne series finale airs Sunday (May 19) at 9pm EST/PST on HBO.
