Former Hole Drummer Patty Schemel on New Memoir & Addiction: 'There Is Hope'
Patty Schemel nearly lost everything to addiction -- twice. In 1998, four years after watching heroin's grip claim her close friend Kurt Cobain , the Hole drummer was so strung out on dope and crack that even Courtney Love 's well-documented chaos was no match for Schemel, who was kicked out of the massive '90s band and ended up living on the streets, trading sex for drugs at age 31. The next year, the Washington State native got clean and joined actress Juliette Lewis ' outfit, Juliette & The Licks -- only to relapse, get fired and lose everything again.
