Video: Back to 'Back to the Future' -- Michael J. Fox Revisits 'Johnny B. Goode'
This past Saturday night, Michael J. Fox (who lives with Parkinson's Disease) strapped on a red Gibson ES-335 and performed Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" -- just as he (as Marty McFly) did in the 1985 comedy Back to the Future.
Except he wasn't actually playing the guitar in the movie, of course; he was just going through the motions, as actors tend to do.
But when he took the stage in New York City this past weekend for his annual charity benefit, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson's, he made up for all that by actually playing the song -- guitar solo and all.
It was obviously his density!
