Toya Wilcox performed a cover of the KISS classic ‘I Was Made For Lovin You’ dressed as a giant pink and purple unicorn, with husband Robert Fripp joining her on electric guitar – watch 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 final track in their long-running “Sunday Lunch” series.
“It’s that time of the week when everything goes crazy in the Frippcox kitchen, and honestly, it’s just taken to a new level,” reads the video’s description.
The pair kicked off 2023 with a fiery rendition of Republica’s ‘Ready To Go’ and a sassy version of The Offspring’s ‘The Kids Aren’t Alright’. Last week, the pair shared an updated version of Toya Willcox’s “Latex Messiah,” and in December, the pair performed a variety of holiday classics, including “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.”
Their cover on A KISS is the latest in a long line of classic rockers such as Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid,” Korn’s “Blind,” Megadeth’s “Holy Wars,” and Metallica’s “Seek And Destroy.”
Sunday lunch launched in 2020, and the following year Toya Wilcox explained that she released the video to help Fripp deal with the COVID-19 lockdowns. In an interview with NME, she said that in the future they will “go much further”.
Fripp said last year that the series upset some King Crimson fans, but at age 76, he’s not fazed by their negativity. “My wife insists that artists have a duty to lift people’s spirits in difficult times. Do I respect that? My answer is yes, I totally and completely agree,” Fripp said.
“We are well aware of what people have experienced during isolation. I mean, you’re stuck in a tiny apartment when your mom dies and you can’t go to the funeral. “My wife told me that if all we’ve done in two years is help one person through a difficult time, then it’s been worth it,” he added.
elsewhere A KISS have announced details of their latest UK concerts, tickets for which are now on sale.
The legendary rockers have been on a farewell tour called ‘End Of The Road’ since 2018. At the time, they announced that they would go on one last tour before hanging up their iconic suits.
