Product Description

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 and the intense highs and lows of these dynamic relationships often shaped by an addiction that consumed her and almost killed her.

Exclusive behind the scenes footage of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain singing Stinking About You .

Amazing rare footage, revealing the raw truth, the Cobains were not drug ravaged monsters all the time, and they loved their daughter quite a lot. The bonding of the couple with Patty was a magical time for all three, but once the dominos fell, they fell hard and harshly.

Hole has NEVER received the credit it is being the musical genuis band that they arem musically and lyrically. And YES Patty, after hearing the story, you can tell quite well that you are not the drummer on Celebrity Skin. That douchebag producer wanted Courtney at the forefront, but in the end, even though I love that CD too, the passion is missing, it is polished up for the masses.

I am happy Patty has come to terms with her exciting life, and is happy where she is these days. One of the very best rock and roll docs I have ever seen.

As a fan of both Hole and Patty's i watched this with great excitement, if your a Nirvana fan you will love the never before home footage of a happy Curt and Courtney and the interviews with countless rockers from the early 90s period but this is all back drop to a much more important and interesting story of a woman who caught all the odds to become a hugely respected hard hitting drummer. Respected by her pears as well as the press Patty while fighting a long history of drug and alcohol addiction pushed through and became one of the 90s more polarizing musicians on the scene. All to just get blown away with the now over powering drug addiction that at the hight of her fane found her homeless, living on the streets and panhandling for money for a little crack. How far a person can fall and how amazing a person can climb back to reclaim her rightful place as one of Rock and Rolls best drummers. This documentary has it all an amazing story with great never before footage of the Courtney and curt, you will learn allot about Patty and her world , which just happened to be one with the days biggest stars all of whom seem to not care at all. This is an amazing documentary about an amazing woman that i always had allot of respect as a musician for but now have for as a person.

I love Hole and I feel like they never got the credit they deserved, and I was excited to watch this documentary and get an intimate look at one of the greatest bands of the 90's. I really appreciated the footage of Hole performances and The Cobains, but felt the documentary was edited SO POORLY. The spilt screen footage and transitions between interviews and sound quality was absolutely terrible. It seemed like a high school production club made this documentary for a final project.

Great movie about Patty and the Hole team. ;-) Most real footage of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love ever captured. Great footage in the extras of Patty and Melissa Auf Der Maur. And a warning to all musicians: don't ever let some low-life douche bag hired-gun label producer abuse you. Do your takes until YOU like them and tell the producer to piss off. And whether you're in a band or a solo performer, you NEED a good manager (no, not the band's manager, your manager) to run interference and make sure you always get your fair share of credit, royalties, publishing, touring & merchandising revenue, etc., whether or not sick bastards like the producer who f'd over Patty come around.

An interesting film about the origins of Hole. Great nostalgic footage and biographical details but it goes a little too much into Courtney's opinions and gets off topic at times. The footage of Kurt Cobain is fascinating, but the subject seems to want to play up her friendship with Kurt and Courtney .

For some time now, I have been reviewing movies from Well Go USA, and all of them have been either about martial arts or Asian history - great films, I must say. However, what was my surprise when I saw "Hit So Hard," a movie that significantly departs from anything that I have seen previously from this entertainment company. This is one of the best rock & roll documentaries that I have had the pleasure to watch, and a great acquisition for the folks at Well Go USA.

Right from the beginning, we are told that "Hit So Hard" was not meant to be, and that it was the result of a fortunate accident. You see, Patty Schemel, drummer for the iconic rock band Hole, was given a video camera before they went on the road for their "Live Through This" tour. Consequently, she began to film anything that had to do with the band and its members. Under the leadership of Courtney Love, Hole is one of the female-driven rock bands of all time (that is, with the exception of Eric Erlandson, the guitarist). As a result of all the filming, Schemel compiled a lot of footage to generate not only a documentary about the band, but also about, as the subtitle of the film says, "The life and near death of Patty Schemel."

In regards to the band, we watch portions of videos from Hole's history and their tours in Nagoya, Japan; Lollapaloozas in Vancouver and Detroit; Brixton Academy, in London; Le Bataclan, in Paris, Pukkelpop Festival, in Belgium; and more. We also see Courtney Love with the late Kurt Cobain (of Nirvana), playing with Frances Bean, their daughter; the effect of Cobain's death and fellow Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff; and much more. Of course, Schemel also talks about her musical history, as well as her homosexuality and that of other lesbian musicians.
