Toyah Willcox performed a cover of the classic KISS song “I Was Made For Lovin You” dressed as a giant pink and purple unicorn, and her husband Robert Fripp joined her on electric guitar – see below.
“I Was Made For Lovin You” was originally released in 1979 as part of KISS’ seventh studio album “Dynasty”, but now Willcox and Fripp have reworked it as the last track in their long-running “Sunday Lunch” series.
“It’s that time of the week when everything goes crazy in the FrippCox kitchen, and to be honest, it’s just taken to a new level,” the video’s description reads.
The couple began 2023 with an incendiary performance of the song “Ready To Go” by Republica and a cheeky version of the song “The Kids Aren’t Alright” by The Offspring. Last week, the couple shared an updated version of Toya Willcox’s “Latex Messiah,” and back in December, the couple performed a variety of holiday classics, including “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.”
Their cover of KISS is the latest in a long line of classic rock musicians such as “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath, “Blind” by Korn, “Holy Wars” by Megadeth and “Seek And Destroy” by Metallica.
Sunday Lunch kicked off in 2020, and the following year Toya Willcox explained that she launched the video to help Fripp deal with COVID-19 blockages. In an interview with NME, she said that in the future they are “going to go much further.”
Last year, Fripp said that the series upset some King Crimson fans, but at the age of 76, he was not embarrassed by their negativity. “My wife insists that artists are obliged to lift people’s spirits in difficult times. Do I respect that? My answer is yes, I completely and completely agree,” Fripp said.
“We are well aware of what people have experienced during isolation. I mean, you got fucked in a small apartment when your mother is dying and you can’t go to the funeral. My wife told me that if all we have done in two years is to help one person through difficult times, then it was worth it,” he added.
Elsewhere, KISS announced details of their latest UK concerts, tickets for which have already gone on sale.
The legendary rockers have been on a farewell tour called “End Of The Road” since 2018. Then they announced that they would go on one last tour before hanging up their iconic costumes.
