Fuel’s Carl Bell is on a list of rockers that includes matchbox twenty singer Rob Thomas, Three Doors Down singer Brad Arnold and SR-7 singer and Bo Bice collaborator Mitch Allan, who are writing tunes with ‘American Idol’ season five finalist Chris Daughtry for his forthcoming debut album. “I’m writing on my own, as well as getting together with some great artists and songwriters who I’ve always respected and who have expressed an interest in collaborating with me,” Daughtry said in a statement, according to MTV News. “It’s been thrilling to approach this album as a new canvas, with the experience of the show and such an incredible year to draw on.” Read more.
Though rumors of Chris Daughtry taking Fuel’s vacant frontman slot have been circulating since he was voted off ‘American Idol’, and after its band members offered him the job, Daughtry tells the York Daily Record it’s unlikely he’ll make the move. What he does want to do is work with Live, after singing with Ed Kowalczyk during the ‘Idol’ finale. “I think it’s a very good chance,” he said. “We’re already talking about collaborating in the near future, even on songwriting. We stay in touch.”
Though Fuel offered ousted ‘American Idol’ finalist Chris Daughtry the chance to front their band 13 days ago after his surprise elimination from the program, TMZ has now learned that Fuel isn’t expecting a thumbs-up from Daughtry, and has started to look at other options.
‘Extra’ correspondent Terri Seymour showed ousted ‘American Idol’ finalist Chris Daughtry Fuel’s offer to make him their new lead singer. “That’s really cool,” Chris said. “I’m flattered. You know, I don’t want to say yes, and I don’t want to say no right now. I just want to make sure what I decide on is the right thing for me.” Read more, and watch video here.
On Thursday, Fuel bass player Jeff Abercrombie and songwriter/guitarist Carl Bell came straight to ‘Extra’ to offer ousted ‘American Idol’ finalist Chris Daughtry a chance to front the band and replace Brett Scallions, who left the group. “Chris, if you are watching, we’ve talked about this before, and if you want to entertain it again we’ll take it and go,” Abercrombie offered.
