Robert Fripp and Toyah Take on Megadeth’s “Holy Wars”: Watch

The post Robert Fripp and Toyah Take on Megadeth’s “Holy Wars”: Watch appeared first on Consequence.

Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox continue their string of heavy covers with their latest “Sunday Lunch” performance, as they tackle Megadeth’s thrash classic “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due.”

King Crimson guitarist Fripp delivers one of the heaviest riffs thus far in the two-plus years the married couple’s been performing rock and metal classics in their popular YouTube series. Toyah, once again leaving little to the imagination in her latest outfit, offers a soulful take on Dave Mustaine’s politically charged lyrics.

In recent weeks, Robert and Toyah have paid tribute to other legendary metal acts, with covers of Metallica’s “Seek & Destroy,” Black Sabbath’s “Children of the Grave,” and Pantera’s “5 Minutes Alone,” among other tunes.

Fripp also recently addressed the backlash he’s gotten from certain King Crimson fans who are not enamored with the couple’s zany performances. He told The Telegraph, “At age 76, why should I give a fuck? This is my life.”
