Michael J. Fox rocked out in iconic Marty McFly Style

Michael J. Fox played Johnny B. Goode at his annual Parkinson's disease benefit, recreating the iconic Marty McFly Back to the Future scene.

For average kids that grew up in the 80's, Marty McFly's Johnny B. Goode is probably the closest non-guitar playing kids would ever get to a good guitar oriented song. It's possibly one of the most memorable guitar solos at that to time to ever reach the masses.

And I can imagine that a number of kids might have decided to pick up a guitar after watching the said scene, myself included. Although my interest with the instrument was primarily short-lived, I really thought that the guitar was the coolest instrument ever after watching that scene. Thankfully I regained the same interest when I got wiser and older.

According to huffingtonpost.com, the actor was only acting out and simulated the iconic guitar playing scene of the movie, a real guitar player (Tim May) was playing the actual music parts. Michael J. Fox did eventually learn the song sometime after working on the film and he still plays the song up to now, which even his Parkinson's disease is unable stop him from playing.

This year, Michael J. Fox has recreated the iconic scene at his annual "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson's" benefit in New York. He carried the same red Gibson hollow body electric guitar and wore a similar suit. Only difference is that he is not singing, and he is playing the actual guitar parts of the Chuck Berry hit song.

Here is a video clip of the Back to the Future Johnny B. Goode scene:
