Stephen King's Favorite 24 Rock Songs -- The Memphis Angle 

"So I run into one of my Constant Readers and — everybody's a critic — the guy says, 'Your column's suckin' out lately, Steve. You're losin' your edge.' My first impulse is to tell him I have a cozy place where he can put my column, but since he looks like a recently retired Hell's Angel, I rethink this option. Instead I ask him what he thinks would make a good piece.

"'Best rock songs of all time,' he says. 'That subject always starts arguments, especially if you don't put Stairway ... on there.'"

So begins horror novelist Stephen King's weekly column in Entertainment Weekly. Read it to discover Cujo Man's faves. And don't be surprised to se another King on the list.
