In their latest “Sunday Lunch” performance, the saucy couple pays homage to the Prince of Darkness. Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox’s most recent “Sunday Lunch” performance honors the Prince of Darkness. The guitarist of King Crimson and his wife, a singer, perform Ozzy Osbourne’s signature solo hit “Crazy Train” with their customary vivacity. In yet another revealing ensemble (see-through top and black pasties), Toyah pays homage to Ozzy by donning a cross necklace and fringe evening gloves, resembling the fringe sleeves that Ozzy has worn in multiple on-stage ensembles. Meanwhile, Fripp attempts to replicate the late Randy Rhoads’s iconic guitar riff.
Toyah rubs the fringe all over Robert’s face as he tries to concentrate on his guitar playing, while the prog-rock legend unsuccessfully attempts to blow the hair away from his head. Toyah exclaims at the conclusion of the performance, “We love Ozzy!” It’s not the first time Robert and Toyah have paid tribute to Ozzy. Toyah sang and danced behind bars in one of the earliest viral videos from their “Sunday Lunch” series, a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” This performance prompted Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi to comment to Heavy Consequence, “I actually believe they’ve gone insane. I believe the lockdown has driven them insane.” In recent weeks, the playful couple has performed covers of “Back in Black” by AC/DC, “Psychosocial” by Slipknot, “Kein Lust” by Rammstein, and “All My Life” by the Foo Fighters.
Robert and Toyah have recently announced that they will embark on a “Sunday Lunch” tour in 2023, although tour dates have not yet been disclosed. In the interim, you can see each of them on the road this autumn. Tickets are available for Robert’s North American speaking tour with his producer and manager, David Singleton, while Toyah will support Billy Idol on a string of UK dates (tickets here). Below is a video of Robert and Toyah performing “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne.
