The Walkmen - "Blue Turns To Grey" (Rolling Stones Cover)

They’re having some of the station’s favorite bands take on classic Rolling Stones tracks, so, without much further ado, here’s the Walkmen’s faithful cover of the Stones’ “Blue Turns To Grey.” Stream it below.

  1. I was digging through some 60′s Rolling Stones a couple months ago and came across a great early version of this that came out on “Metamorphosis”,a rarities LP. It’s more stripped down than the “December’s Children” version and has a great guitar lead. Check it out:
