Watch: ROBERT FRIPP & TOYAH WILCOX Cover QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE’s “No One Knows”

King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his spouse Toyah Wilcox are again, as they’re each Sunday, this time with a canopy of the Queens Of The Stone Age traditional “No One Knows.”

Toyah and Robert have been interviewed by Rolling Stone in 2020, and supplied some attention-grabbing perception into their creation of this weekly video collection. Asked why they began the collection, Wilcox responded “This whole thing about being in lockdown was people were stopping moving, and our generation must move.”

Fripp added “Mine is a slightly more nuanced view of this. 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 places on a tutu and dances to Swan Lake on the river’s edge along with his spouse. So I’ve adopted my spouse’s sense and imaginative and prescient of these items.”

Toyah revealed she presents Robert with a list of songs and he picks one he feels he can pull off. Fripp says “I take a look at the difficult technical features. Can I play it on guitar? Is one guitar ample to help my spouse? Can I honor the music? If it is an orchestral ballad, it is probably not going to be a go.”

Willcox told NME previously that she started the series to occupy Fripp, who was getting really bummed out about not being able to tour. “Here I’m on this home with this 74-year-old husband who I actually do not wish to dwell with out,” she said. “He was withdrawing, so I assumed: ‘I’m going to show him to bop.’ And it turned a problem. I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual aspect and the persuading Robert to participate.”
