Hit So Hard (Q&A) (9 mins)
Patty Schemel, drummer of the rock band Hole, discusses Hit So Hard, a documentary about her life that covers her coming out as gay, and her troubled time with the group, which eventually led to drug addiction and homelessness. Schemel talks about her new life as a drum teacher, her contact with Hole lead singer Courtney Love (whom some blame for Schemel's departure from the band), and her musical influences.
