In the latest episode of their Sunday Lunch series, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp and his wife Toyah have teamed up with a masked guitarist to cover Iron Maiden’s Number of the Beast.

The special Easter cover landed yesterday (4 April) and once again guest-starred guitarist Sidney Jake, the mysterious guitarist who also appeared on the couple’s cover of ZZ Top’s Gimme All Your Lovin’ last week.

Watch the cover below:

Fripp and Wilcox recently spoke to Rolling Stone about how their Sunday Lunch series. In the interview, Fripp said: “Performers have a responsibility to perform and at this particular time to keep people’s spirits up.”

He added: “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 puts on a tutu and dances to Swan Lake at the river’s edge with his wife.’ So I have followed my wife’s sense and vision of these things.”

Fripp and Toyah launched their Sunday Lunch video series last year during lockdown. Since then, the couple have covered music from Britney Spears, Alice Cooper and the Foo Fighters, among many others.
