Fuel, schmuel: Chris Daughtry has a deal, baby! He’s signed with Clive Davis, and “has already begun to work with A-list collaborators.”

A-list collaborators? Who might they be? Well, let’s speculate. That’s what we’re good at.

Clearly, the dream is a Bon Daughtry hybrid, though a co-rocking of this magnitude might have catastrophic consequences.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind hearing Daughtry front a classic band lately fallen on hard times.Take it away, people: Who is Daughtry working with? (And why did that come out sounding like a bad-cop police interrogation?)
