Michael J. Fox Recreates ‘Johnny B. Good’ At Parkinson’s Benefit [VIDEO]
Michael J. Fox has always been awesome in my eyes. Fox wowed the crowd at the “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s” event Saturday night when he took to the stage with a guitar and played “Johnny B. Goode.” The Washington Post reports it’s the same song that wowed the 1950s-era high-schoolers at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in “Back to the Future.”
Here’s the clip from “Back to the Future” in which, the Huffington Post reports Fox actually pretended to play the same song. (He has since learned to play guitar.)
Michael J. Fox is such a great actor! From his days at Alex P. Keaton in “Family Ties” and Marty McFly in the “Back to the Future” movies to his role as Mike Flaherty in the hit TV show “Spin City,” Fox seems to move people in a way many other actors don’t or can’t. Maybe it’s because he has been so open about having Parkinson’s Disease, maybe it’s his charisma. It might be both!
The “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s” event is a fundraiser for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
