Huey Lewis is giving props to Michael J. Fox. Lewis wrote “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the movie “Back to the Future” which of course starred Fox, and now has a big-budget Broadway stage production. 

Lewis says Fox has been a source of encouragement throughout his hearing loss.

Fox has lived with Parkinson’s disease for more than 30 years, which causes tremors, stiffness and balance problems.

Lewis says he's spoken with the actor about their respective health struggles and joked, "That in itself is a chore, because he speaks a little funny with his affliction and I can’t hear, so we’re really a pair. We have to be about this close to one another to be able to understand.”

Lewis says Fox has offered lots of support and said, “He’s going to come see the [Broadway] show; he’s been very supportive. People don’t realize how funny he is. He is very funny and warm and genuine – just a great, great guy.”
