St. Vincent Will Always Heart Dimebag Darrell

Before St. Vincent's killer Live in NYC performance, Hive caught up with the songstress and grilled her on a topic near and dear to every music fan's heart: Guitar skills. Though she's known for her eccentric style on the six string, you'll be surprised to hear that she has an affinity for metal that stems back to her early days growing up in the suburbs outside of Dallas. In the clip above, watch her profess undying love for Pantera and the classics, and find out who's on her radar these days.

St. Vincent also admits to "nerding out" on Rush, Steely Dan, Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, as you'll see below.
