When Chris was voted off I started hearing rumors that he was offered a gig with the band Fuel. His wikipedia entry had mention of it, and a ‘friend in the industry’ confirmed it for me yesterday. Last night on Extra! on NBC, the offer was officially made, and today the news is a buzz with the story.
My only question is… What happens to Absent Element? Although I like Fuel, and to see where Chris could go with that band would be exciting… Normally an established band isn’t so open to the songwriting skills of a newcomer. I absolutely love the lyrics of AE, so whatever route the guy takes, I hope he uses a pen & paper as much as his voice.
