Hit So Hard: The Life & Near Death Story of Drummer Patty Schemel is a 2011 biographical documentary film that chronicles the to-hell-and-back journey of Patty Schemel, drummer for Courtney Love’s band Hole.
Directed and co-written by P. David Ebersole, the movie offers audiences a chronicle of life as a rock star in the 1990s from Schemel’s point of view – at band practice, on the road, backstage, performing in front of millions of people and partying after the gig is through. It also reveals the story of the drug addiction and other problems that consumed Schemel and almost took her life.
The film includes a slew of personal home video footage revealing Schemel’s life offstage with Courtney Love, »
Patty Schemel is best remembered as the drummer of the alternative rock group Hole, fronted by erstwhile alt-queen rocker, now-notorious loudmouth Courtney Love. For top level context, Schemel laid the thunderous beat on both of Hole’s most popular and well-known records, including 1994’s Live Through This, which was released just four days after frontwoman Courtney Love's husband, Kurt Cobain, was found dead in their home. This is all well-documented. What only the most hardcore of rock aficionados will remember was that Schemel’s drum parts on 1997’s follow-up record Celebrity Skin were replaced by a session drummer at the behest of producer Michael Beinhorn (knob-twiddler for records like Soundgarden's Superunknown, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Mother's Milk and Grave Dancers Union by Soul Asylum).
