Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox cover Foo Fighters’ Everlong… with the help of a snake

Watch King Crimson’s Robert Fripp, wife Toyah Willcox and, um, a snake rocking out to Foo Fighters’ classic hit Everlong.

King Crimsons Robert Fripp and his wife Toyah Willcox have covered Foo Fighters’ classic single Everlong – with the help of a real-life snake.

The pair have been sharing all sorts of weird and wonderful renditions as part of their Sunday Lockdown Lunch series in quarantine – from Metallica to Nirvana to Guns N’ Roses. Now they’ve tackled the Foos’ awesome 1997 single – with Robert on guitar and Toyah handling vocal duties – with a snake casually hanging around to enjoy the performance.

No animals were harmed or mistreated in the filming of this episode,” the video reassures viewers. All handling was done under the strict supervision and instruction of a trained professional.”

Speaking to The Guardian last year about how their Sunday Lockdown Lunch videos started, Toyah explained, Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without. He was withdrawing, so I thought: I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge.” Once it started garnering attention online, she revealed, It was: Wow, I’ve never experienced the power of that connection.’ ”
