Paul Young's Height
6ft 1in (185 cm)
British Singer. This photo (by Malcolm) was from a Collectormania show in 2007, he wore cowboy boots, giving him at least 0.6 or 0.7 inches more than my sneakers.
I'm 6ft 1in and somewhere between 13 and 14st now, although I feel I should be under 13 [stones].

Only 51 here, hard to see him having lost much height at all. Claims 6ft1 and that's what he looks, I think on the whole he does like big footwear which means he looks 186-7 in them.

Max 183-184cm with footwear advantage,no more than ~182cm/5'11.5 range,imo.

i see him around 5 inches taller than Rob in this picture,so without cow boy boots i think he would be around 3.5 inches taller than Rob so around 5"11.5.A little more because he seem have a strong forehead.Around 6"0' for me.
Editor Rob: remember I have an inch sneaker, he has a cowboy boot that looked 1.6-1.7 inch, not as big as 2 inches.

Yeah, a celebrity who doesn't exaggerate their height which makes a change. At least 6'1'' perhaps a little more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/15
I'm shocked he's only 6ft1. He's listed 6ft3 in most places and I believed that he was. Probably in boots.
Rob, is 186-187cm peak a possibility?
Charlie said on 22/Nov/14
"Hob" r u nuts? Ofc cowboy boots are not 2 inches...most likely 3 cm, 4 cm maximum, this dude i clearly not under 6ft1 but you are clearly short since u want him to only be 6 ft wich makes u feel better.
avi said on 29/Jun/13
Didn't notice he was cowboy boots! In that case he looks close to 6'2 but 6'1 is what he is.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
solid 6'1 yea tall man

Rob does belly fact affect height and posture?
[Editor Rob: very big belly might effect a bit more than just being a couple of stone overweight.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/12
Ok...he claims 6ft1. But there is always
that rare occasion where a celebrity may
round it down a wee bit. 185cm is fair. But I don't think we should
rule out the possibility that Paul Young may be 186cm.
I think at this point it can be accepted that he wears boots
that make him look 6ft2+.

cowboy boots was not under 2inches. if rob was 5'9 in sneakers which consider he bend a little up here, he should be a flat 6'0
Editor Rob said on 1/Aug/12
There's your dinner ;)
Paul yesterday: "I'm 6 ft 1 in and somewhere between 13 and 14st now, although I feel I should be under 13"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/12
He's 185cm max in the picture with
the slouch, losing an inch. Since he has a
shoe advantage he'd be 188cm with better posture.
So chop off 1-2cm.
IMO, his true height is 6ft1.4(186.5cm)
ChiasmataX said on 16/Jan/12
Any guesses above 185cm for this guy are absurd. He's not taller than the guy from height challenge # 8. If we take away Paul's footwear advantage, he will be nearer to the guy from height challenge # 10. Rob got this guy bang on at 185cm.
said on 15/Jan/12
Rob do you Paul could be between 6ft1 and 6ft2?
[Editor Rob: it's always possible to lose a fraction of height by 50's, but I didn't think he was 6ft 2. ]

I toured the UK with Paul and his band in 1983 on the "No Parlez" tour. At that time I would suggest he was easily 6'2" possibly even 6'3". At the time he routinely wore very flat shoes because his stage show was very energetic, so heels would have been a major hazard!
said on 21/Dec/11
Did hé apear 187cm because of boots or how tall did hé look not counting footwear
[Editor Rob: between 6ft 1 and 2 range]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 7/Dec/11
if he had that advantage, he looks no more than 6'0 here!
LAN Jiao said on 29/Oct/11
In pic he came near 6'0. In person he is 6'1.
Josh B said on 18/Jul/11
He is in boots in the picture, and is nowhere near 6"3, he's pushing 6"1 with them on lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/11
Probably 6ft3 in boots
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
Now I see where the 6ft3 and 6ft4 came from...I still think he's near 6ft2

Paul is from my home town - Luton. I've seen him, when he's been visiting relatives in town, and performing with his Tex Mex band Los Pacaminos. He always wears cowboy boots, even when he's not performing with his band. Tall guy, but appears even taller because of the boots. 6'1", is a good estimate for him, however he has claimed up to 6'3" in the past.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/11
Up straight he'd look 187cm or 188cm
James said on 15/May/11
Actually he looks at least 6'1 with rob like maybe 186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/11
I reckon he fluctuates between 187cm and 188cm

I reckon he flactulates between 185 and 186cm
Chameleon said on 30/Apr/11
Absurd? Look at his footwear adventage and his height next to Rob int he pic now tell me this guy is 187??
Whats wrong with you ;/
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
The 5"11 and 6"0 claims are absurd
187cm(6"1.75) looks nearer...
Chameleon said on 29/Apr/11
Nah SAK was right this guy is 6'1 max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
Closer to 6"2...
Dave said on 20/Apr/11
186 cm was right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/11
I actually don't rule out 6"2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/11
He's a weak 6ft2...looked around the same as Simon LeBon in the Band Aid music video
Chameleon said on 31/Mar/11
Yeah SAK I agree.
SAK said on 30/Mar/11
The difference here looks about 4 inches, ok I take into consideration that Young's posture is not great, but he also has shoe advantage.
I would say he is 184cm/6ft0.5 @ most.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/11
He looks 6ft0.75(185cm) with bad posture with Rob...
Upstraight I think he's 6ft1.5 or even 6ft2
James said on 26/Feb/11
184cm next to rob and would appear 182cm or 183cm if he did not have footware advantage

In the video Do they know it's Christmas by Band Aid Click Here
(If that doesnt work, type Band Aid-Do They Know It's Christmas 1984), It looks like Paul Young is 6'1 compared to 6'4 Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet) on 2:52-2:53.

Jon 183cm said on 4/Nov/10
186cm fitted him better rob, even with the half inch-ish shoe advantage...
hb45 said on 25/Sep/07
I watched the video of the Live Aid concert(1985). He looks very tall, with long long legs. For me, he's around 6'3" (191cm).
marco said on 22/Aug/07
I walked right by him in London years ago; he's taller than 6'1; i would say a solid 6'2

[Editor Rob: 1/4 inches are sometimes given for a reason.]
wanna play the game of the 1/4 inch? it's very easy you add i substract. :D i win automatically though otherwise the game wont count. LOL
lets start......i take 1/4 off Eddie Van Halen and off Paul Young height.
both look like they lost 1cm. ;)

[Editor Rob: when folk do compare by height, maybe you'll cotton on why I have some 1/4 inches here and there. There's eventual rhyme behind reason.]***
sorry, i didn't get the last 60 words.
