Roger Daltrey to guest on CSI

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey is to make a guest appearance in US hit TV drama “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

His voice already opens every episode of the "CSI" franchise - the classic Who hit “Who Are You” has been the opening theme tune since the show’s launch in 2000.

Two other Who songs appear as the themes for spin-off drama series “Won’t Get Fooled Again” on “CSI: Miami” and “Baba O’Riley” on “CSI: New York.”

“CSI”’s producers, Jerry Bruckheimer TV, Alliance Atlantis and CBS Paramount Network TV are keeping details about his character under wraps, calling it "a surprise role that will keep viewers guessing” in trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter.

The Who will release 'Endless Wire', their first album in 24 years, on October 31.
