King Crimson’s Robert Fripp and His Wife Return With Cover of Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Last week’s big Internet viral hit was a a video of 74-year-old King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his 62-year-old wife, Toyah Willcox, performing “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.

The cover was excellent, but, inevitably, a lot of viewers seemed to hone in on an entirely different detail of the video.

Fipp and Willcox have acknowledged this with a new cover video — Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell” — that begins by utilizing a particular pun to thank fans for helping the “Sandman” clip reach nearly three million views.

The new cover video finds Ms. Willcox in a cheerleader outfit jumping on a trampoline, which, I imagine, was also designed to acknowledge the proverbial elephant in the room.

You can watch the new video below. And don’t forget to come back next week, when Fripp and Willcox will cover Iron Maiden while Willcox jumps rope in a micobikini.
