At 74 years old, Robert Fripp, founder, and guitarist of King Crimson is more than active than ever: for several months he has been making home music videos with his wife Toyah, who is also a renowned singer. Those sessions were dubbed “Sunday Lockdown Lunch” and they became a way to have fun and stay connected with their fans amid the pandemic.

The couple is known for delivering eccentric covers of their favorite artists. On this occasion, Robert and Toyah covered “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, while she rides a stationary bike and makes dramatic gestures trying to represent what the lyrics of the song say while singing it.

She’s also wearing a pretty smooth top that motivated one viewer to comment, “I missed It first but if you look to the left there’s Robert Fripp!”

In just one day, the clip amassed more than half a million views on YouTube. Watch it below, followed by their interpretation of “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin, in which Toyah wears a Leopard print suit.
