Out with Deitel, in with Tempesta?

It looks like Blabbermouth has the scoop on who'll possibly take Ralf Dietel's place in the Nine Inch Nails lineup. According to a post on Audio Agression, that man is Mike Tempesta, of Powerman 5000 and the Human Waste Project. It turns out this information was being reported on a Texas radio station as early as January 9.

In addition, some people have reported a brief Nine Inch Nails appearance on Ticketmaster, with a Cleveland show where tickets went on sale January 17th. Now that link is dead. The link I was given by Scott had a band called 216 listed.

Why am I telling you this? Primarily because I want to avoid further email clutter. Speculation of this type is pretty much a waste of time, you might as well wait for an official announcement from nin.com or from a popular music magazine, even if they postponed their follow-up article.
