It was a few weeks ago that I endorsed Chris Daughtry as the next American Idol.
Apparently I wasn't the only one who was impressed.
Jeff Abercrombie, Fuel's bassist, was so smitten by Daughtry's rendition of 'Hemorrhage (In My Hands)' that he has extended an open offer to the reality show contestant to be its new lead vocalist. Idol judge Randy Jackson has confirmed the offer.
Brett Scallions, Fuel's orginal lead singer, left the band in early February, so the band is looking for a replacement via contest. The official website makes mention of Daughtry's performance, but also invites others to submit auditions.
