Patty Schemel, the hard hitting drummer of Courtney Love's seminal rock band Hole, is not only a master of the sticks, but a true survivor. After growing up as an outsider near Seattle she shot to stardom in the early 90's and was engulfed by the music scene. Patty casually documented her life as a rock star at band practice, on the road, backstage and in front of millions of people. She captured rare, precious moments behind the scenes with Hole and Kurt Cobain, including the intense highs and lows of these dynamic relationships often shaped by an addiction that consumed her and almost killed her.
Schemel's story is compelling on its own, but the solid storytelling and intimate access... make it a document of an era as well. -- Cindy Widner, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
