Over the weekend, the Michael J. Fox Foundation hosted their annual “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s” charity event. During the festivities, Fox joined Dave Matthews onstage to perform “All Along the Watchtower.” Watch Fox bring the house down with some fancy guitar work.
YOU KNOW THAT NEW SOUND YOU’RE LOOKING FOR!?!? WELL, LISTEN TO THIS!! That was awesome. I knew that Fox could play guitar in real life, as I remember him rocking out with Coldplay over the summer. What I didn’t know is that he was capable of melting off faces like that. Such an impressive performance.
It’s been a huge week for actors with musical chops. First, we had Shia LaBeouf freestyling his crazy ass off on “Sway in the Morning,” and now, we have Marty McFly himself ripping guitar solos. Hell, even Dave Chappelle got into the mix by singing Radiohead’s “Creep” at an SNL afterparty. Maybe a Trump presidency won’t be so bad after all?
According to Today, last year’s event raised $5 million for Parkinson’s research, so let’s hope Fox inspired donors to write even bigger checks this time around.
