Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox

King Crimson founder Robert Fripp and his wife, singer Toyah Willcox, have shared a cover of Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams’ – watch it below.

The pair launched their Sunday Lunch video series last year, sharing renditions of songs by Nirvana, David Bowie, Metallica, Billy Idol, The Rolling StonesJudas Priest, The ProdigyGuns N’ RosesAlice Cooper and more through Willcox’s YouTube channel.

Last week (June 6), the pair performed a version of ZZ Top‘s ‘Sharp Dressed Man’ alongside “mysterious stranger” Sidney Jake on guitar, with Willcox wearing a sleeveless suit jacket and tie, minus a shirt.

For their reworking of ‘Sweet Dreams’, Willcox is seen sporting a pair of black feathered angel wings, a studded collar and some red and black face paint. She also has the same paint colour combination spread across her chest – which is blurred out.

“The kitchen trio are back having travelled the world and the seven seas. Don’t miss this one, sure to provide sweet dreams,” Willcox captioned the new video.

Earlier this year, Fripp and Willcox covered Led Zeppelin’s 1971 classic ‘Black Dog’. They also shared a New Year’s message with their viewers in a separate video.

“For my 2021, I wish for an inclusive, equitable and compassionate society,” Fripp said in that clip. “And how I’m gonna get my wishes [is] by strapping on my guitar and rocking out like an uncontrollable fireball of rock fury.”

Willcox revealed in February that her Sunday Lockdown Lunch video series started because her husband, King Crimson‘s Robert Fripp, was having withdrawals from performing.

Last October, former King Crimson singer and bassist Gordon Haskell died aged 74. The late musician was asked by Fripp to join the band in 1970 following the departure of Greg Lake, their original vocalist.

Bill Rieflin, the former drummer of King Crimson, also passed away last year. He was 59 years old.
