Every year, the star's Michael J Fox Foundation throws a big gala fundraiser called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson's. But this year Fox strapped on a Gibson and played an oldie for the crowd.

To be fair, what you'll see below isn't quite as incendiary as the Back to the Future Enchantment Under the Sea sequence (which, coincidentally, took place on the same night as the fundraiser, 56 years earlier). Fox can't play quite as well as Marty McFly—then again, the actor only learned to play the guitar a couple of years ago so he could play with the Who at the very same event.

For all that, seeing Fox in that suit, playing that guitar is like a warm bath of nostalgia.
