Demme's death at the age of 73 means that the final scenes he shot in his adventurous, hopscotching career were musical, too. His last full-length documentary was a Justin Timberlake concert film. Few filmmakers have been so drawn to the marrying of music and image the way Demme, a self-avowed "fanatical rock'n'roller," was. Demme, and his films, were never so alive as when the music was playing – and playing loud.It's about a Nevada service station owner who claims to be the beneficiary of the billionaire.From early on, music played a central role in his films, especially in 1986's music-stuffed road-trip comedy "Something Wild," in which Jeff Daniels starred a tax consultant drawn into the wilder orbit of Melanie Griffith.Demme most recently directed an episode of the police drama "Shots Fired," scheduled to air Wednesday, and a film for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to debut July 1 .Demme was initially married to Evelyn Purcell, before divorcing.
