6ft 5 (195.6 cm)
Scottish Singer Derek W Dick. In an interview with VH1 he said: "I am 1.95 mtrs tall. They go "Ah, we know what you can play, we have this big killer who goes about beating people up. You are 6 foot 5, you are Scottish. You are a drunk or you are a criminal". Stereotyped! I am a nice guy.'"

I knew Fish was tall, but 6ft5 is more than I expected.
Ah - Marillion; an 80's band that I really did appreciate! I thought 'Kayleigh' was a beautiful song and I used to know a gorgeous little girl named this! She was born in July 1987 and was an angel of a baby and a real pleasure to look after, and I don't say that lightly!

"Fish's height is 6ft 4¾in (195cm)"
"Peak height was 6ft 4¾in (195cm)"

He looks like a giant compared to other band members in Marillion concerts and music videos. It's pretty strange for his early persona. A 6'5 giant scottish jester!

On an interview for TVAM in 1990 he said that he is 6 ft 5 and a half. To be accurate, it's 196,85 cm.
I'm his fan and I am 194 cm tall :)

195cm is 6"4.75
So I'll go with that.

I think this guy could've been over 6ft5 at his peak. But I read 6ft4 aswell.

Rothery looks around 5'11 next to Fish if he's 6'5",he's put on a load of weight over the years, he's got to be 20+ stone (300lbs), a great player though. Must admit though, I thought Fish was 6'6"...who knows

Interestingly enough, 195 cm is actually 6'4 3/4" not quite a full 6'5". So when he stated his height, he might of actually been 6'4 3/4".

Easily 6'5 maybe taller.
Paco said on 31/Jul/06
If he says he is 195 cm that's 6'4 3/4 but I do agree, he is probably 6'5" but 195 cm is 6'4 3/4"

He always looked very big to me and he towered over the other Marillion members. I guess he is around 6`5, but no more than that

There are several mentions of 6'5.5" on his site too.
Although the guy himself has always said 6'5" . Perhaps he downgrades the half inch to give it a nicer sounding number? Most fans mention him as over 6'5" ... with some estimates of 6'8". (probably, due to, as Glenn mentioned, the rest of the band members being 'average' height)

http://www.the-company.com/email2004-03-18.htm,in this article, 'Fish' says [of duetting with singer Nikkie Lambourn] "It seemed a perfectly natural inclusion in the set list as Nikkie has such a powerful voice and is well suited to the song. The differences in height cause quite a lot of amusement as I'm 6 foot five and she is about 5 foot 3! The fans love it!"

rest of marillion is average or short.

Oh god I have met fish on a number of occassions back in the eighties and he seems so much bigger, very imposing fella, I would of given him two more inches for sure!
