Check out the video for "Call me Al". There you can really see how short Paul is when he jams next to Chevy Chase.

I stood next to him while he signed a guitar for a fan: i would say that he is 1m55.

Can we get an entry on Garfunkel too? I saw him listed as 6 feet tall on Google, but I really don't buy that. If he was 6 feet tall then he'd tower over Simon by nearly a full head, and he just doesn't. In most shots Simon seems to come up to the bottom of his nose, so I think he's no more than 5'10".

I met him in Atlanta. I'm five one and three-quarters and he is shorter than me by a couple inches.

Saw him live once a long time ago, double-headlining with Bob Dylan and I believe he was about 5 inches shorter than Dylan. Dylan was 5'7" tops, listed at 5'6.5".

On the cover of the album Sounds of Silence (Simon and Garfunkel's first?) Paul and Art are shown walking away from the camera down a country road. It is impossible to tell from that photograph that Art is so much taller than Paul. Also, in their early television performances, one of them was always sitting down, which looks suspiciously like a ploy to disguise Paul's height. By the time Simon and Garfunkel released their Bridge Over Troubled Water album, the cover makes it defiantly clear that Paul is much shorter than Artie. So my guess is that, early in their career, some agent or other told them that they would have to keep people from finding out that Paul was short, but after they became wildly successful, Paul demanded an end to the silly nonsense of trying to kid people that he was taller than he was. And good for him too.
