Rocker John Mayer will play himself in the new season premiere of hit crime drama CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, which airs in America next month (21SEP06). The singer/songwriter will perform two new songs from his upcoming third album in the two-hour special. Mayer, who is currently on tour with Sheryl Crow, will be caught up in an investigation on the drama when he has to perform at a Las Vegas, Nevada crime scene. Former PARTRIDGE FAMILY star Danny Bonaduce will also make a cameo in the special - as a fallen rock star who is found dead.
