Ex-American Idol constestant Chris Daughtry turned down the offer to front the rock band Fuel following a request in May by the group.
Brett scallions, Fuel former vocalist, left the band in February, 2006, and the group has been searching for a replacement ever since.
Daughtry was considered a rocker on the American Idol show and even covered Fuel’s hit single “Hemorrhage” during the competition.
Daughtry is currently touring for the summer with other American Idol contestant including winner Taylor Hicks and runner up Katharine McPhee.

The group’s full length debut “Sunburn” came out in 1998 and was a moderate hit with rock fans thanks to the single “Shimmer.” Fuel’s second album “Something Like Human” reached platinum sales status thanks to the Top 40 hit “Hemorrhage (In My Hands).”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
