Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed that he turned down a role in the American TV Series CSI.

The guitarist is apparently a big fan of the show, but thought twice about starring in the show after speaking to The Who’s Roger Daltrey.

"They wanted me to be Uncle Ron the safe cracker," Wood told Virgin Radio. "But I saw Roger Daltrey do a guest appearance - he said it was all too much. No time to rehearse and he had to play five parts. I said no, I didn't really want to go in like that."

Wood added, however, that he would reconsider if they were to make a London edition of the TV show.

"It would be interesting if they set one in London and I could be an old time safe cracker," Wood said. "That would be fun."
