I was standing right next to Luther Vandross in a book store in Los Angeles. I am 6ft 1½in. I can assure you that Luther Vandross was at least 6ft 2½in.

@MrTBlack: I'm aware of that. They tend to round up or down. He was described both 6ft2 and 6ft3. Personally, I think he could appear either of those on occasion. But I reckon he was closer to the former. Large-framed guys like Vandross can look taller than they really are.

@Rampage,

Seems unlikely since he was listed as this on a news paper allthough they rarely use 1/2 inches.

Rob, could a fraction over 6ft2 be closer?

No Problem. If he was 6'3", he could fool people into thinking he's 6'4" and he can't so, I had a feeling he was around this mark.

Hey Rob, Got a link quote stating that he's 6'2". Don't know if you acknowledged it but it's below my previous post.

Thank you.
[Editor Rob: yeah I think it's a good shout, was just having a look at him again]

He once said, "I'm six feet three", according to the obit to him in the lastest issue of Rolling Stone, in reponse to his lifelong weight problems. I personally didn't know that he was so tall.

He was always listed at 6-3. He was usually the tallest person on the stage, even when he was skinny. I think he is closer to 6-3.
