He's still got it.

Actor and activist Michael J. Fox rocked out on stage with Dave Matthews Band over the weekend, performing the classic song "All Along the Watchtower."

It was part of the Michael J. Fox Foundation's annual gala in New York City, called "A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to Cure Parkinson's"

The Canadian-born actor's performance was a sweet reminder of a certain high school dance in "Back To The Future," one of Fox's most famous films.

Enchantment Under The Sea, anyone?

Fox has lived with Parkinson's disease since he was diagnosed in 1991, when he was 29.

"I was diagnosed 25 years ago, and I was only supposed to work for another 10 years. I was supposed to be pretty much disabled by now," he told Haute Living in a recent interview.

He went on to set up his foundation with the aim of curing the degenerative neurological disorder that affects movement and is characterized by tremors and loss of balance.

Fox was born in Edmonton and grew up in Burnaby, B.C.
