Patty Schemel in person! Presented in collaboration with Women of Rock Oral History Project
Patty Schemel, the hard hitting drummer of 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 and the intense highs and lows of these dynamic relationships often shaped by an addiction that consumed her and almost killed her.
