Marty McFly rocks out with the best of them. After recreating the Back to the Future dance scene with Coldplay over the summer, Michael J. Fox has now brought his guitar along to play with Dave Matthews. 

Fox played “All Along the Watchtower” at “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s: An Evening of Comedy & Music to Benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation” event. The jam session happened during the benefit, which took place this weekend in New York City at the Waldorf Astoria. 

Fox was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinsons in 1991, but did not disclose his condition to the public until 1998. Since his announcement, Fox has created The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, which works to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease through research and therapies for those living with the condition today.
