King Crimson founder and guitarist Robert Fripp is at it again, with his wife Toyah Willcox, as they cover yet another rock and roll classic for the Toyah and Robert’s Sunday Lunch Series.
The two have been making waves on the Internet with their homemade quarantine covers of classic rock hits for the past few months but really gained traction with their version of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”, where Toyah rode an exercise bike while wearing a daring top as she sang along to Fripp’s guitar.
They followed it up with Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”, “Welcome To The Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses, and for this particular video, “I Love Rock N’ Roll”. The song was originally recorded and released by the Arrows in 1975 but was popularized by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in 1982, roughly the same time when Toyah was seeing success as a New wave artist.
This cover now has Toyah playing the guitar along with Fripp and has her wearing the iconic shirt from their Metallica cover.
