i never realised he was this tall either. i thougth he was maybe 187-188 guy but now when looking closer at photos like with obama he is clearly in the 6 foot 3 range. but he is almost 70? he may have lost half inch?

Could pass for 6ft4...very lanky guy

160lbs is insane but I can relate to being that thin at one point.

I think he may well have never been taller than 6'2.5" personally.

Here is 6'5 Howard Stern with James Taylor. Looks to be way more than a two inch difference.

@Jakob

A news article did mention him that I found 6'3" 155lbs but could have been 6'3.5" or 6'3.25" and just rounded down. The general rule in society is if your a height plus a quarter or half inch, you round down not up.

I'm delighted to find James Taylor on here, I never thought of looking for him. I went to see him in New Jersey in 2010 and we got to talk to him at the side of the stage after the show. I was surprised how tall he was; I'm a shade under 6'3" and my dad is a big six foot guy, and he was a bit taller than me and a lot taller than my dad. Nothing under 191cm, and in his younger days more like 192cm I think. Rob, do some guys in their 60's only lose a cm if any?

Hey Rob, how tall do you think his son is(Ben Taylor)?
He's about 2" taller Click Here
[Editor Rob: would need to see more of him to say]

Agreed on the weight for Stewart...at my most gawdy teenage stage I was already over 6'4" and weighed something around 155 lb...everyone felt I looked unhealthly thin, emaciated, while skinny Stewart never looked unhealthy.

I still can't believe a 6 ft 3 man could be 130 lbs without looking seriously ill/skeletal. Jimmy was always thin but he was at least healthy looking. It's a typical ...

Agreed. Stewart was never that low 150 maybe. I'm 168 and 3 inches shorter and im normal if I was 155 I'd be really slim. Hell I was 148 and 5'9ish in 2007 and I was super skinny. Unless he has a very light build and no muscle and light bones etc. Still 130 for even a 5'5 person is very slim. My 5'10 friend was 129 and looked like toothpick!

Jimmy Stewart was 130 lbs before he joined the army, during the bulk of his film career he was definitely around 160.

When you see Taylor recently he looks strong, like a farmer. He would qualify as one of the few show business people who looks more attractive in late middle age than he did when he was young. So maybe he had some sort of addiction thing going on when he was young.

6'3" 155 lbs would looks like a marathon runner. 6'3" 130 would look like an eating disorder.

I'm about 130 at 4ft 11 and although not super slim I'm not fat, a size British 10!

@ Mathew

Jimmy Stewart claimed to be 130 pounds! Yeah 180 pounds for 6'3" is slender as it is, 150 pounds is more the weight of the average 5'7-5'8" guy.

Keith Richards was skin & bones in '71, same lifestyle. Jimmy Stewart 6' 3" & 130? Gism.

155 was kinda high for '71, he was obliterated on heroin then. H users don't eat.

6'3" 155 too high? Jeez he must have been real thin. I'm that height and weigh 180 - 185 range and I'm considered thin by most.

In any case I do believe 6'3" looks pretty accurate. And I don't think he's shrunk by any significant amount.

He was really skinny in the early 70s. At least 155 pounds seems believable peak, unlike Jimmy Stewart's 130 pounds which is completely ridiculously light for a 6 ft 3 guy!

New article validating he's 6'3". If he was something like 6'3 1/2", they'd probably mention it
Or put 6'4".
[Editor Rob: so the mention was Time magazine in early 70's, 155 pounds aswell!]
Sam said on 28/Apr/14
Thanks for adding Rob and yes a bit more is plausible, possibly up to 6'3.5" at peak. Clearly he doesn't seem to be dipping below 6'3" even today in his 60s.

He's a tall man - a comfortable 2" taller than Obama.

Do you think he could be over this? It's very possible actually.
[Editor Rob: today I'd say he looks 6ft 3, there is a chance he could have been a bit over it I guess.]
Arch Stanton said on 26/Apr/14
Another excellent new addition, nice one. Nothing less than a solid 6'3", in fact he can look 6'4"-6'5" in the Elton/Costello/Krall pictures.
