Unexpectedly, renowned musician Robert Fripp—best known for his work with the venerable progressive rock group King Crimson—made news lately by teasing fans with the revelation of an OnlyFans account. The news was made through a lighthearted YouTube video that unusually featured Fripp.

The video, which was posted on April 1st, shows Fripp sitting on a stairway in his underwear, with his confidence kept in check by his handy guitar neatly positioned over his lower torso. Fripp plays about with his instrument, puckering his lips and showing off a link to his purported OnlyFans website on the screen, all while maintaining a devilish grin in his eye.

Fans who anxiously clicked on the link were disappointed to find that it led to a broken page, thus the euphoria was short-lived. Fripp’s revelation turned out to be nothing more than a sophisticated April Fools’ hoax very fast. Although some admirers thought the singer had a great sense of humor, others thought the act was a little uncomfortable.

The Public’s Reaction

The reactions to Fripp’s video were varied, with some fans expressing amusement at the prank. One fan praised the unexpected nature of the joke, commenting, “‘Expect the unexpected’ goes over the top. What a laugh! Thanks for this.” Similarly, another fan lauded Fripp’s sense of humor, stating, “Hilarious, love your sense of humor.”

However, not everyone found Fripp’s antics amusing, with some expressing discomfort and criticism. One commenter labeled the video as “disturbing,” while another expressed concern for Fripp’s well-being, stating, “WTF!!!! Robert’s lost it! Get the doctor!”

Despite the mixed reactions, Fripp’s playful stunt is not entirely out of character. The musician’s continuing “Sunday Lunch” series with his wife Toyah Willcox shows that he is no stranger to welcoming the unexpected. The duo amused fans during the epidemic by posting humorous videos of themselves singing short song excerpts while wearing silly costumes.

Reflecting on the origins of the Sunday Lunch series in a 2021 interview with Rolling Stone, Fripp emphasized the importance of bringing joy to others during challenging times. He explained:

“My wife has been insistent. Performers have a responsibility to perform and, at this particular time, to keep people’s spirits up. This is a very English cultural tradition. Essentially, when things are really bad in England, what you do is begin laughing and do silly things. A good reference point is the Ministry of Silly Walks on Monty Python. Now it’s, ‘Robert puts on a tutu and dances to Swan Lake at the river’s edge with his wife.’ So I have followed my wife’s sense and vision of these things.”
