    Love that Michael J. Fox even did that classic one leg jump move in the end.

    And quite the perfect timings as this happened on Saturday night, November 12 :cool


    Quotes by Ricky Gervais from that night's MJFF gala.

    "Doing a benefit gig later for the Michael J Fox foundation. We're having dinner with the great man himself beforehand. Inspirational legend."

    "I think I'd have to say that watching Michael J Fox perform Johnny B Goode was a spine chilling magic ****ing moment." Twitter / Ricky Gervais: I think I'd have to say th ...

    "Yes sorry about the bad quality pic but the crowd were going crazy and I jumped on a chair to take it. He is inspirational in so many ways."

    Kudos and admiration for MJF!

    But... Ricky Gervais said something nice about a person with a disability? Maybe there's hope for him after all.

    Way to go, MJF! Looks like he's doing well, mobility/coordination-wise! Looks like someone learned how to play guitar for real, as well... (y)thumbsup:thumbsup

    That was ****ing awesome. Seriously, Fox is the man.

    It's remarkable how well he has aged, especially when you compare the photos of him in 47 year old Marty make-up from BTTF2.

    He always knew how to play guitar. Although the recording in BTTF is not him, if you look closely he is actually playing it note for note.

    He faked some of the lead stuff pretty well as it was important for selling the playing to get those couple shots in, but the simple chord stuff was done pretty badly. I have a hard time believing he could really play then - looks great now though!

    Simply fantastic. I love how he doesn't let Parkinsons slow him down.
