Game Of Thrones author and creator, George R.R. Martin confessed in a recent interview that his love of the Grateful Dead inspired many aspects of his popular series.

“I’m certainly a fan of the Grateful Dead,” Martin told Salon’s Laura Miller last fall. “My wife Paris is perhaps more of a fan of the Grateful Dead than I am.”

Martin discussed how music helps his creative process. The interview was part of a 92Y event and made available on Billboard’s website.

Many Grateful Dead fans have noticed several similarities with Game Of Thrones and now they finally have their proof.

“I have Grateful Dead lyrics rattling around in my head all the time,” he says. ” ‘Ripple’ is one of my favorite songs of all time… [quoting the song] ‘There is a road, no simple highway.'”
