King Crimson frontman Robert Fripp has enlisted the help of his wife, musician Toyah Willcox, for an excellent cover of Guns N’ Roses 1987 classic ‘Welcome To The Jungle.’ 

The cover is part of their Sunday Lunch video series, which was launched amid the thick of the coronavirus pandemic last year. Together, the pair have covered beloved tracks by David Bowie, Metallica, Nirvana and more.

The extremely wholesome cover saw the duo take to the kitchen to perform the glam rock number, with Willcox performing armed with a pair of gym weights.

“Welcome To The Jungle and welcome to a new exercise lesson with your favourite pair,” Willcox captioned the new video. Check it out below.

At the dawn of this year, Fripp and Willcox covered Led Zeppelin’s 1971 track ‘Black Dog’. The duo prefaced the cover by musing on their hopes for 2021.

“For my 2021, I wish for an inclusive, equitable and compassionate society,” Fripp said in that clip. “And how I’m gonna get my wishes [is] by strapping on my guitar and rocking out like an uncontrollable fireball of rock fury.”

2020 marked a tragic year of loss for King Crimson. In October, former singer and bassist Gordon Haskell passed away aged 74. Haskell played with King Crimson for the band’s 1970 record Lizard, following the departure of original vocalist Greg Lake.
