AWOLNATION’s Aaron Bruno, Anthrax’s Scott Ian Share “Game of Thrones” Thoughts: “I Don’t Think Jon Snow’s Dead”

Courtesy of HBOAfter a year of not knowing what is going to happen to Jon Snow, Game of Thrones finally returns this weekend. Many people have thoughts and predictions for the new season, including AWOLNATION's Aaron Bruno, who spent last month touring on Fall Out Boy's GoT-inspired Wintour Is Coming tour. For one, Bruno does have an optimistic outlook on the fate of Jon Snow.

"I don't think Jon Snow's dead," Bruno tells ABC Radio.

"Obviously we know that that weird witch creature can bring people back to life," he continues, referring to the Red Priestess, Melisandre. "So I just can't imagine that [Jon's] actually dead."

As for what happens once Jon is brought back from the dead, Bruno hopes he begins a relationship with the dragon-wielding Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi.

"The ultimate thing would be for Khaleesi and Jon Snow to get together, obviously. That's what everybody wants," Bruno says. "But, you know, the thing about Game of Thrones is they always just break your heart over and over."

Bruno didn't read the A Song of Ice and Fire books by George R.R. Martin on which Game of Thrones is based, but Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian did. Ian will be in the same boat as the non-book readers for this season, though, as the show is now outrunning the novels, but he doesn't mind.

"The last two books are my least favorites, because the way [Martin] splits the narrative, you're spending so much time in one world and you're missing what's going on in the other parts of that world that he's created," Ian tells ABC Radio. "I love on the show the fact that they didn't do that, they didn't just spend one whole season with Daenerys, let's say, or one whole season in King's Landing. They keep all the story-lines going."

Game of Thrones has already passed A Song of Ice and Fire in one regard: the much-anticipated meeting between Daenerys and Tyrion Lannister was shown last season, which hasn't happened in the books yet.

"[Tyrion's] on his way, he's on his journey to meet [Daenerys], but they kind of moved it up on the show, which totally worked for me," Ian says. "Those last two books get really long. You're like, 'Would you get there already?'”

"It's a little long," he laughs. 

The sixth season premiere of Game of Thrones airs Sunday, April 24 on HBO.
