It Gets Better and Better – Check It Out
Singer Toyah Willcox, King Crimson founder Robert Fripp and mystery guitarist Sidney Jake are back for a new episode of their Sunday Lunch. This time, Toyah wears a pair of boxing gloves as the trio take on Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” – the theme song from the 1982 movie Rocky III starring Sylvester Stallone.. Like their previous covers, this is entertaining and fun to watch. Fripp is still sporting a mohawk while Jake wears a maroon hoodie.
Toyah and Robert launched their Sunday Lunch series last year where they covered classic hits from David Bowie, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Judas Priest, Metallica, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Guns N’ Roses, and many more. They started it because Fripp missed touring especially since the coronavirus pandemic temporarily shut down live events.
“Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” Toyah told The Guardian. “He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge.”
She added, “I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and the persuading Robert to take part.”
