Hole Drummer Patty Schemel Readies Rock-Doc

Former Hole drummer Patty Schemel is preparing to release a new documentary about the band. During her stint with the group, from 1992 to 1998, the drummer shot 40 hours of video which she handed over to director P. David Ebersole who transformed into the upcoming film.  The trailer (below) depicts recent interviews with band members, including a very strung-out-looking Courtney Love.  The film is also said to include rare footage of the late Kurt Cobain.

Schemel was a member of Hole during the ’90s and performed on the band’s 1994 platinum record Live Through This before departing from the group in 1998.
