Willcox revealed in February that her Sunday Lunch video series started because her husband, Fripp, was having withdrawals from performing during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” the musician and actor said of Fripp, explaining that she wanted to occupy the guitarist. “He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge.

“I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and the persuading Robert to take part,” she added.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger shared a new song with Dave Grohl this week.

Discussing ‘Easy Sleazy’, NME wrote: “Reclaim your Stone and your Foo please, they’re lost. It’s like watching two people who have been teamed up at a ‘Write your own song’ workshop and they’ve given it a good go.”

Following the song’s release, Jagger has announced that he is selling an art piece built around the song as an NFT (non-fungible token) to raise funds for beleaguered independent music venues.
