Met tons through the Moonlight run but my man Demme was the kindest, most generous. A MASSIVE soul. He lived in love. And rests in peace.

Very sad to hear of the passing of the great Jonathan Demme. Admired his movies, his documentaries, his concert films. He could do anything.

Often on tour I'll watch Jonathan Demme's "Heart of Gold" to remind me of what performance is about. Demme was a one of a kind filmmaker.
