Stephen Curry is one of the best basketball players of his generation. Paramore is one of the best bands of its generation. Both Curry and Paramore started their journey to superstardom around the same time, just before the dawn of the 2010s, and have continued to stay at the top of their respective games. Curry just won his fourth ring in 2022, and remains an undisputed top-3 player alive. Paramore’s latest two albums — “After Laughter” and 2023’s “This is Why” — are two of their best. Both continue to reinvent themselves with age.
On Monday night, Paramore played Chase Center, home of Curry’s Golden State Warriors. When it was time for the band to play their early hit “Misery Business,” lead singer Hayley Williams brought out a special guest … none other than Curry himself. Curry got the mic to sing the song’s epic bridge, and sounded great doing it. Please, treat yourself to Stephen Curry singing Paramore live on stage.
I have to admit I am the target audience for the Curry x Paramore friendship as a big fan of both. This is “John Daly covering ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’” for people with taste.
Another day, another W for Steph Curry. What else is new?
