Toyah and Robert Fripp Revive the Foo Fighters Classic Helped with Gold Leaf and Giclee Paint


Light entertainment icons Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp have once again used the internet to spice up the country’s bandwidth.

This week, the enterprising couple took on the Foo Fighters classic All my life – originally from the band’s 2002 album One by one — and gave him a typically rugged workout, with Fripp playing the song’s riff and Toyah singing the lyrics while squirting paint all over his gold-leaf adorned torso. And that’s a sentence we’ll probably never write again.

“This song is kinda dirty,” said Foos frontman Dave Grohl Q Magazine in 2003. “I really enjoy giving women oral sex. It’s a pleasurable experience – giving someone something they’ll remember all their life, and if you do it right, they will.”

Grohl returned to the stage this weekend, joining Paul McCartney onstage as he headlined the UK’s Glastonbury Festival. In his first public performance since the death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins in March, Grohl joined McCartney for a 1963 version of The Beatles. I saw her standing there – a song they also performed together at the O2 in London in 2015 – and the Wings classic Runaway group.

Meanwhile, in Worcestershire, the hand-painted poster that adorns the kitchen wall on this week’s show is now available as an official “Fripp’s My Guru” t-shirt.

“Contrary to various speculations online, Toyah designed this as the backdrop for Toyah and Robert’s upcoming Sunday lunch (which is something of a splashy affair),” Fripp wrote earlier this week. (opens in a new tab). “Toyah was unaware of the Facebook witterings questioning the truth of Fripp’s guruness (a query that has Fripp’s full support). But always good to remember your own place in the world, especially when you’re unable to take public transport.”

The t-shirt is available for purchase now (opens in a new tab)as well as a splendid variety of bags, cups, tea towels, etc.
