Michael J. Fox is a man of many talents — he's an accomplished actor, a passionate activist and, as he reminded fans on Saturday night, he's also one heck of a guitar player.
While hosting the Michael J. Fox Foundation's annual charity event, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson's," Fox joined blues rocker Dave Matthews onstage for a performance of "All Along the Watchtower." But he didn't simply strum along.
Midway through the jam, Fox broke out in a free-form guitar solo that wowed the crowd.
Of course, the star has a history of making a big impression when he grabs a guitar, as he did so memorably in 1985's "Back to the Future."
Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991 and created his foundation in 2000.
Last year's "Funny Thing" gala raised $5 million for Parkinson's research.
