The couple launched their Sunday Lunch video series last year, sharing renditions of songs by Nirvana, David Bowie, Metallica, Billy Idol, The Rolling Stones, Judas Priest, The Prodigy, Guns N ‘Roses, Alice Cooper and more through the Willcox YouTube channel.

Last week (May 30), the couple performed a version of Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ alongside “mysterious stranger” Sidney Jake on guitar, with Willcox sporting a blonde wig and gold studded bra.

In this week’s cooking version, the pair perform ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man.” It’s the second time Fripp and Willcox have offered their own rendition of a ZZ Top song, following their cover of ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’ in March.

For his version of “Sharp Dressed Man”, Willcox wears a sleeveless suit jacket and tie, without a shirt, while Fripp and Jake sport a combination of shirt, vest and tie.

“The kitchen trio is back and, even if we say so, looking great …… AND ROBERT FRIPP FINALLY BREAKS !!!” Willcox captioned the new video.

Earlier this year, Fripp and Willcox covered the 1971 Led Zeppelin classic “Black Dog.” They also shared a New Years message with their viewers in another video.

“For my 2021, I wish for an inclusive, equitable and compassionate society,” Fripp said in that clip. “And the way I’m going to get my wishes [es] strapping my guitar and rocking like an uncontrollable fireball of rock fury. “

Willcox revealed in February that her Sunday Lockdown Lunch video series began because her husband, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp, had withdrawal issues when acting.

Last October, former King Crimson singer and bassist Gordon Haskell passed away at age 74. Fripp asked the late musician to join the band in 1970 after the departure of Greg Lake, their original vocalist.

Bill Rieflin, former King Crimson drummer, also passed away last year. He was 59 years old.
