    I believe that you should be able to tell what kind of music a writer likes just from their writing style. I came up with this theory while reading Stephen King books, his writing style is pure rock and roll.

    ....his taste comes through loud, clear and balls to the wall-plus he speaks about his genre favorites often.....this won't hold up though for most other writers...J.K. Rowling for instance.....I have no idea after reading the Potter collection if she likes Chamber Music or Death Metal.....

    Interesting mental exercise. I want to give that a try and pick several authors I'm familiar with, pick what I think they like, and then see if I can find out their musical tastes. Of course I may be way off...

    I think sometimes it holds up, other times it doesn't. I know Dean Koontz listens to classical music while writing--that doesn't show in his stories.

    Dr. Seuss wrote his best stuff to War Pigs and Fairies Wear Boots if I'm not mistaken.........
