@Richard Those guys (excl. Melissa) have an average for 179.5 cm. That's average for celebrities but above average in the real world.
Richard Rasmuson said on 25/Apr/22
Slash definitely was a little over 5'9"(175 cm) peak, especially if you look at every Guns N' Roses member photo of all the bandmates together. Slash has terrible posture which made him lose a bit of height over the years, he seemed to have lost close to half an inch. The photo with him, Axl Rose, and Arnold Schwarzenegger made Slash seem short, but that is only because he wears flat converse shoes and slouches. I'm not buying the below 5'9" peak height for Slash like others here are.

If I had to pin-point the peak heights for (previous and current **not all of them**) GN'R members based on all my research and comparative photos:

5'8" 1/2 (174 cm) - (Axl Rose) --- Never was 5'9" he looks shorter than slash in every photo when younger. The 5'10" on his mugshot was grossly inflated.
5'9" 1/4 (175 cm) - (Slash)
6'1" 1/2 (186 cm) - (Duff)
5'10" (178 cm) - (Izzy)
5'11" (180 cm) - (Matt Sorum)
5'8" 1/4 (173 cm) - (Steve Adler) -- (the 5ft 7 claims are ludicrous, he has terrible posture like Slash)
5'9" 1/2 (176 cm) - (Richard Fortus), over listed by an inch for sure
6'1" (185 cm) - (Frank Ferrer)
5'11" 1/4 (180 cm) - (Dizzy Reed), overlisted by an inch
6'4" (193 cm) - (BucketHead). He towered over everyone in the 2000 -2004 lineup
5'4" 1/2 (163 cm) - (Melissa Reese). Most overlisted member, nowhere near 5ft 9 like some sources claim.
5'7" 1/2 (171 cm) - (Tracci Guns).

As you can tell, not a very tall band, especially the original lineup (besides Duff). Enormously talented group!

Well, a downgrade is needed to be done, no more than 5ft 7, look at these photos:

Myles Kennedy is said to be 1m80. He's taller than Slash by a full forehead which is usually about 10cm.
What do you say Rob?
85OK said on 8/Feb/22
Anyone watch the latest Jimmy Kimmel video? He looks way shorter than JK who's only 181cm according to I think he's closer to 170 to 172 than 175cm.

rob, im around 176.5 out of bed and around 175cm at night.

How do my height would compare of the slash height?
Editor Rob
Should look within a fraction of Slash

As I've said here in '15, he needs a downgrade... I would give him 5'6'' max.

yep, just watch it, slash is 5'7. The game is over.
Ethan Larsen said on 12/Sep/18
5ft 9 in his prime and 5ft 8 now. Axl rose was 5ft 8 in his prime from his mug shot and I think hes 5ft 7. There are photos of them together, looks like they are an inch apart.
Silks said on 14/Aug/18
Slash is lucky if he's 5'7".
ChrisM said on 28/Jun/18
He's lost at least two inches from playing 10-11lb Les Pauls for 30+ years.
Greg99 said on 6/Jun/18
I would doubt 5'9", he appeared to be shorter than Lemmy in the pics I see online (Lemmy would have been less than 5'9" in the late 2000's) - I assume - but I don't know - that they were both wearing boots with heels in those pics - maybe not.
Ethan Larsen said on 31/May/18
Look about 5ft 9 now. He maybe was 5ft 10 at one point in the 80's and 90's

Spencer said on 5/Jan/18
Looked an inch taller than Axl in the 80s. 5’9.5” peak is my guess .
assari said on 25/Dec/17
Once I saw Slash and he is a very short man.

Without cowboy boots he is hardly 160 cm (5 foot 3 inch) tall.
Beau said on 7/Dec/17
@Jayy "Looks shorter next too Arnold a axel"

Take a closer look - he's propping himself on Arnold & Axl's shoulders and heavily leaning in. Easily down at least 3-4 inches from doing that.

@James "The thing is I don't get why is in a lot pics axl would actually has some height on him and then there some pics where slash can see over his head."

Probably because Axl routinely wore cowboy boots in the early days. If not then he was slouching. There's enough photos out there to show Axl was approx. an inch less in the same footwear when they both were standing straight.
James said on 6/Dec/17
The thing is I don't get why is in a lot pics axl would actually has some height on him and then there some pics where slash can see over his head. I think axl might be a tad taller then him. There's people I know who have a similar built as slash and they seem only a quarter inch taller then me or the exact same height or even a little shorter then me then there's people who look like axl rose and is built like him they seem a half inch taller then me. And I get measured from 5'8 3/4 to 5'9 1/4 all the time
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/17
@Fisticuffs and Danimal: For what it's worth, Slash actually wasn't much taller than my friend who has told me he's 5'6" and looks about that height. Their photo is a pretty good one and Slash honestly looked just an inch and a half or two inches taller in the photo. It's possible Slash had Converse in the photo, but then my friend usually doesn't wear shoes much more than that. I'm not saying he's as short as he looked in the photo, just that I was surprised he didn't look taller.

I've never met Slash myself, but in general, I'd have guessed about 5'8.5". He can look even shorter, though in pics with several of my friends. I doubt Slash has lost an inch or close to it, though. He's not what I'd call old so if he's lost anything, I'd say a half inch max.
anyonmious said on 5/Aug/17
i say peak height is 5'9". Present height is 5'8"
Spencer said on 5/Aug/17
He never looks tall yet he always seemed an inch taller than Axl. I think he's 5'8.5 today and Axl is 5'7.5 now in his younger years slash may have been like 176 . Def not much over 5'9 peak .
Fisticuffs said on 23/Jul/17
Slash is struggling for 5'8" with Dave Grohl..
Danimal said on 5/Jul/17
Slash is nowhere near 5'9". Here he is next to Dave Grohl who has several inches on Slash (he's taller than the top of Slash's hat):

The hat and hair allow him to exaggerate quite a bit. 175-173.
rthydghdfghdfg said on 2/Jun/17
I was a massive fan of GNR growing up so its sad to see them looking so old and heavy...both slash and axl really are carrying a lot of weight on their frames...
lasla said on 27/Apr/17
he looks tall in videos, i always tought that he was like 6'3. But the video of him and jack black made him looks like 5'8 at most.

Max 5'9 peak height
RisingForce said on 14/Apr/17
Correct on both, berta. Axl was never any taller than 173 cm peak and 175 is the most Slash could be. There's a good chance he's 174 cm. He usually looks shorter than Glenn Hughes, who I showed to be about 5'9" himself on the Height Request page: Click Here Slash is also usually shorter than Steven Tyler, no more than 5'9" himself and nearly 2 decades older: Click Here It looks like there's a good probability Slash is 5'8.5" and employed the 2" rule.
berta said on 5/Dec/16
in his interview on swedish/ norwegian talkshow skavlan. he looked about 10 cm under skavlan who say he is 183. i think he is even 1 cm shorter than this and axl rose could be 173
Anonymous_1 said on 3/Dec/16
Is a peak 5' 11" (180 cm) possible for Slash?
Gaza2121 said on 3/Nov/16
There's no way he's any taller than you! But maybe he doesn't stand at his tallest at times. I think 173 cm would be fair enough. Do you think you'll ever get a chance to meet him though?
Editor Rob
unfortunately it would be unlikely.
Gaza2121 said on 29/Oct/16
Rob, can you explain why he looks so short next to Jack Black? He looks no taller than him in that video in fact he looks shorter! But to be fair he is wearing converse. 5'6-5'7 max! Even 5'8 is too generous. Downgrade?
Editor Rob
I think he looked a couple of inches taller, 5ft 8 range is very possible for him.
Jay said on 25/Oct/16
Looks same height as Jack black on Conan Click Here
Josh Jeffords said on 8/Oct/16
He looked taller in 90 with big hat.
Funny rock stars are often short.
Never saw live but I'd say 6 2 with hat Ò˜º.
Slashsince20's said on 2/Aug/16
I'm a big fan of slash, and I doubt he's been 5'10.
for what I know he's been only 5'8 since the 80's .
I don't see 5'10 on this guy.
5'9 seems more believable.
Leo said on 27/May/16
He before looks 5'9.25 with normal weight, but maybe the hair help him.
Today he looks 5'8.75 with his weight.
Jamie said on 22/Mar/16
5'10.5 peak
Arch Stanton said on 18/Mar/16
Duff can look close to 6'2, perhaps 6'1.5.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Mar/16
Rob, photo for Slash? I think a little over 5 ft 9 is possible. 176 I think might be better.
James C. said on 18/Jan/16
From looking at slash he actually does seem more 5'9 range and especially looks it in his converse then his boots which can confuse you. I can understand the 5'10 listing from before because he can tower axl rose who is 5'8 1/2 by eye level in some pictures though in some pictures axl rose actually looks an inch taller then him or has an inch higher then him matching over his eyebrows. Plus Slash has an similar built too Taylor lautner when he was younger though I wouldn't go less then 5'8.75 for him maybe not over 5'9 1/2 for him. Though him claiming 5'10 1/2 maybe it's the hair or maybe he got measured at that or maybe the two inch rule which he is really is 5'8.5 range. Though too back that up I'm 5'9 myself believe or not at an urgent care place I gotten measured at 5'10 1/2 only once though and i know I'm not that high I have coworkers who are that range 5'10 1/2-5'11 and they're an good amount of taller then me like they're taller then me. In pics of slash comparing too my coworkers he definitely isn't 5'11.
Prince said on 14/Jan/16
Hi Rob. I noticed you had Slash at 5'10" before and now you have him at 5'9". Any reason why? Was it photos of him with others appearing an inch less than you previously thought?
Editor Rob
I think from looking at him with more people he just didn't come across as being that tall.
Xass said on 13/Jan/16
Rob, what do you think about former Guns bassist Duff McCagan? He gets listed as 6'3", but Slash says in his biografy that Duff's a bit over six foot.
Editor Rob
he can look maybe 4 inch range taller than slash
RisingForce said on 30/Nov/15
This is a better listing. I saw some pics of friends with him, even indoors where I thought he could look more 5'8" range! Can look shorter than Glenn Hughes who is probably about 5'9" and really looks similar in height to Ozzy who is only 5'8" range these days. Click Here Click Here Also, look up Slash with Eddie Trunk who says he's "just under 6-2". Slash is much shorter with his hat.
Anonymous_1 said on 21/Nov/15
Peak height was 5 ft. 11 in. (180 cm)
scooch said on 18/Oct/15
I think his former listing was absolutely bang on at 5ft 9.5 or 177cm.
I'm not too sure he would measure a full 5ft 10 by say 11 P.M.
Prince said on 29/Aug/15
I may have to reconsider my 5'10" listing and say possibly 5'9" I have to admit that Slash's height is really difficult to exactly pin down for some odd reason. I would guess at least 5'9" and at most 5'10" Michael Jackson almost all the time looked taller than Slash in just about every picture with them together and Michael was 5'9" I guess it's possible that Slash could've been a little taller than him but Michael Jackson perhaps was wearing shoes that gave a lot more height than his.
Dancer said on 25/Aug/15
I think he is 5"9 at best,when he wore one inch heels he looked same height as 5"9 Michael Jackson!
Prince said on 15/Aug/15
Slash is likely 5'10" barefoot. He's probably 5'10 1/2" right out of bed but drops to 5'10" after being up and around.
Prince said on 14/Aug/15
I think Slash is 5'10 1/2 barefoot as soon as he gets out of bed but after being up for several hours drops to 5'10" barefoot. Average height for white males in the U.S. as of Summer 2015 is 177cm which translates to 69.6 inches. Just over 5'9 1/2" but a tad under 5'9 3/4". The average for All American males is 5' 9 1/2".
Iluvhiphop5 said on 8/Aug/15
He's approximately 5'10. I know him personally. I'm 5'8 he's 2 inches pass taller than me.

Shorter in boots than Charlie sheen at his roast
an anonymous peach said on 10/Jul/15
5'6? Lol c'mon... that's an obvious troll who thinks they're being funny. It's like when females come to this site and post stuff like "I had high heels on and he/she came up to my ankles, I'd give him 5ft 2 which is being generous" (more like 5ft 7). Slash is 5ft 9.5 at worst.
MulletPr00f said on 4/Jun/15
I'm 5'8'' and met him while working at a ski resort. He was with ski boots on (that adds at least 2-3 inches) I was wearing just regular boots that would add me an inch or so. He still looked about 3 or 4 inches shorter than me. I would give him 5'6'' max. Just look at the picture that Bernardo posted: Click Here
Richard Barkley said on 24/Feb/15
He looks 176 cm, but he is 5'10
Goldsick366 said on 8/Dec/14
Rob you might want to shade off that half inch. 177cm could be dead on if one doesn't count his hairstyle and his hat.
Prince said on 31/Oct/14
I doubt Slash is 5'10 1/2 barefoot. He's probably 5'9" barefoot.
Bruce said on 20/Sep/14
If people saying Slash is around 5ft9 then Axl is definitely 5ft7/8 max

176 cm at the absolute max, he rarely looks like a legit 5'10" guy.

Heylo said on 21/Apr/14
Seem to be about the same height as Michael Jackson, give or take 1-2 cm. I would say 5'9 for slash.

5'9 at best, needs a downgrade. this is him standing next to jack black who's 5'6. Click Here
Thomas said on 8/Feb/14
I think 5'9.5" (177cm) could be spot on. He's most definately taller than 5'9".
lol said on 21/May/13
He was a bit taller than axl .. it's hard to say how much ...
But I think he's a good example of a 5'9 guy ... ( Nowdays he's looking 5'8.5'')
joe said on 18/Mar/13
look in these 2 videos, standing infront of his marshall stack Click Here and Click Here i cant see him at 5'8

He is 5ft8 range, maybe 5ft9 bust most likely 5ft8.5.

Theres a video on youtube of him standing infront of his marshall stack and he is slightly taller and those are around 6 feet, explain that. He often does look short though.

Sean said on 30/Oct/12
Look up "Conan o'brien guitar battle with Jack black" on youtube. Slash appears at the end, and I seriously can't see him being more than an inch, MAYBE two taller than Jack Black.
Shaun said on 3/Oct/12
In all fairness he generally looks nearer 2 inches taller than Axl. 5 ft 10 could be right for him but I find it hard to believe he and Trinny are the same height.
Shaun said on 3/Oct/12
I'd be tempted to shrink Slash down to 5 ft 9 or 5'9.5" seeing him next to Trinny Woodall especially, I don't think he looks a legit 5 ft 10, not seen enough comparisons of him with others but I get a 5 ft 9 impression with him, could be wrong. Wasn't he about an inch taller than Axl Rose?
Shaun said on 20/Aug/12
Click Here

Doesn't look any taller in comparison to Jeremy Clarkson than Tom Cruise did. Doesn't look taller than 5'9" here. Slash is a cool guy but his hair, hair, shades and voice scream insecurity.
Slashfan said on 8/Jan/12
I met him several times. Most recently in Vegas at a casino. He and I were standing face to face. I am 5'4, and I can assure you he is 5'8 at most, more likely 5'7. He has good posture and thin legs, which make him appear taller. Besides, he's an amazingly talented guitar player and a super nice guy., wouldn't matter if he were 4'11
somebody new said on 23/Oct/11
5'9,5 is possible. 5'10,5 with shoes maybe
Daniel said on 15/Oct/11
I knew him, in 2006. A strong 5'9 for this guitar hero!
somebody new said on 26/Sep/11
He doesent look much shorter than Adam Levine in the third photo. 5'9,5'' is the lowest he looks there. 5'10'' is a reasonable estimate. Not over 5-10 tho
olivia said on 24/Aug/11
i met slash at a concert in milwaukee wisconsin because i am good friends with his godson. i am 5'9" and i have a picture of me with slash and he was definitely shorter than me. but he's ****ing hot in person :)
tmh said on 7/Aug/11
His posture often makes it hard to tell, but I would say 5'10-5'11 seems pretty accurate. His kids are getting pretty tall for their ages, so you know he's probably passed on some height genes.
Jimmy said on 7/Feb/11
5'10? Does that make Fergie in heels 6'?

She had him by an inch or two during yesterday's Superbowl. I thought he was really short
Marty said on 11/Jan/11
5'10" is probably right.

One more thing I'd like to add is, when two people pose together for a picture they don't usually stand like they're gonna be measured or anything. For that, they'd have to be standing straight with their backs facing each other.

LP said on 22/Jun/09
I disagree. Slash is min 177cm (5'9.5"), max 179cm (5'10.5"). His posture, heavy guitar, and Converse shoes do not add any inches to his height, that's for sure.
guyfrommars said on 17/Jun/09
184 cm Arnie also wears heavy boots as The Terminator. Slash is 175 cm, max 176 cm.

Nah 5'9" barefoot, 5'10.5" in rock star shoes maybe. Weiland is around 5'11" and Duff 6'2"
fern said on 6/Jun/09
Slash is around 5'7 maybe 5'8, his goofy hair makes him look 5'10, at the end of this video just look how tall 6' Arnold the terminator is, he towers over Slash and others, and Slash has his Rockstar boots on!

Guys remember that Slash has a horrible posture. For all you know he is 5'10.5'', but bad posture, gravity, Converse shoes and a heavy Les Paul guitar don't help in height boost do hey :)

i think he is somewhere between 5'9 half and 5'10 half if you look closely in some puics of v'n'r he is about the same height as dave kushner so he's not that much taller than me im 176-177cm which myself personally not tall but about avereage

While we're on topic of guitar heros Glenn, have you ever met the great Stevie Ray Vaughan?
Thomas said on 15/Apr/08
glenn is right, markus, velvet revolver didn't break up, scott left,they still plan to continue just with a differant singer
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
thanks here for people like you.some here dont appreciate me.
lp said on 15/Apr/08
Thanks Glenn. How awesome is that we have Glenn here, he can answer questions about most celebs!
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
i met zakk between the years 1988 and 1994.havnt seen him since.i always felt 6ft.people here say 6-1, maybe im wrong.
lp said on 13/Apr/08
Glenn, ever met Zakk Wylde, how tall is he?
Thomas said on 12/Apr/08
yeah markus and leung my friend payed 650 dollars to go to the concert and meet the band and scott didn't even show up
Anonymous said on 12/Apr/08
I'm mean those two other pictures looks like he's 3 inches taller than you, is he wearing big boots or something.
glenn said on 9/Apr/08
he can look 5-9 with horrible posture.he is no taller than 5-10.5 and has a rap for being short in the with all celeb men that height.
Anonymous said on 8/Apr/08
5'10.5-5'11 sounds right, I think 5'10 flat is alittle absurd.
Leung said on 2/Apr/08
Yes Markus prior to seeing Slash in real life I got the impression that he looked about 5
glenn said on 2/Apr/08
velvet didnt break up.
Markus said on 2/Apr/08
Yes Leung, looks like our estimates were pretty close to each other!
Did you also think Slash looked taller in real life than from pics ? I actually was a bit surprised.

The funny thing is that both Slash and Weiland don't look much taller than Glenn in the pictures posted on this site. From above pix with Glenn, I would put Slash at 175 cm, but what I saw is that he could pass for a 180.

Still bothered Weiland didn't show up afterwards...wanted to see for myself because some people claim him at 173 - 175 which can't be.
Markus said on 2/Apr/08
I'll check it out!

Just got word velvet Revolver broke up, so I probably saw theit final last show :S
Leung said on 1/Apr/08
I know what you are talking about, I posted a similar experience on the Scott Weiland page.
Tall Pig said on 9/Feb/08
Duff Mckagen is about 6'3 ... but he looks taller becasue he is unhealthily skinny. He slouches too.
glenn said on 7/Dec/07
no.thickest footwear of the 3,yes.
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/07
are you wearing heels in that first pic Glenn?
Brian said on 5/Nov/07
Met him at a guitar show in the mid 90's...he was 5'10-11'ish but had some boots on
glenn said on 24/Sep/07
try 5-9 for coming.
Nevermind said on 24/Sep/07
How about the other VR guitarist, Dave Kushner? Looks about 6'...?
Jason said on 16/Sep/07
I remember she said she's 5'6''.
Markus said on 16/Sep/07
Nice pic Rachelle! For the comparison, whats your own height?
I'd guess you at around 5-5 ?
glenn said on 22/Aug/07 time we both have to remember about the flash.youll probably have your digital by then.
Rachelle said on 21/Aug/07
Yeah, he does slouch.

It is very dark, but here's the pic:

glenn said on 21/Aug/07 are lucky.i didnt know those kind pics were salvageable. maybe i have pics i can save.slash is 5-10.5,but has a hell of a slouch that fooled me for years.i thought he was 5-9 years ago.
Rachelle said on 21/Aug/07
Glenn, I took my pictures with Slash to Rite Aid and they didn't come out, so I went to a special developing place, and they came out! I will post them later.

And I think Slash is 5'10"ish.
glenn said on 16/Aug/07
scott doesnt sign or pose hardly for 10 years.i have one lost from 1993.he is 5-11.
Markus said on 15/Aug/07
Glenn, any chance on a picture with Scott Weiland?
Mattiew said on 20/Jul/07
Maybe 5'10"1/2 with his hairs back to Guns n' Roses epoch xD
Rose said on 2/May/07
out of interest will the song "Come on, Come in" be in the new album "Libertad" by Velvet Revolver
glenn said on 7/Apr/07
converse.he is still cool to me.not to cool to other dealers.
gn'r said on 6/Apr/07
Cheers Glenn. Bloody Slash :) he's such a legend. I thought he looked 5'10ish when I saw him a couple of years ago. And Glenn, is he still wearing the cowboy boots these days, or Converse shoes?
glenn said on 6/Apr/07
he usually looks 5-9.i have friends that look 5-9 to me and others.but when they strectch out,they are the 5-11 they claim..i realise this i think slash was telling the truth.i saw him a few weeks ago.5-9ish,slouched.
gn'r said on 5/Apr/07
Hold on, is this the same glenn talking? You stated before he was 5'9'' and now 5'10.5'' with shocking posture. What made you change your mind?
glenn said on 5/Apr/07
slash is 5-10.5.has horrendous posture that make him 5-9.
Jair said on 4/Apr/07
If that guy Glenn is 5ft 8 then slash is clearly 5ft 9,unless he is wearing his cowboyboots.
jason said on 19/Feb/07
axl 174-175 cm, slash 177-178 cm, duff 188-190 cm
Markus said on 14/Dec/06
Hmm Duff looks more like 6'2" to me actually in these pix.

In the middle pic Duff slouches, but in the right one there only half a head between Glenn en Duff. But he stands a little behind Glenn though...

Whats the average size of a head ? I think mine is about 10 inches. (my head that is....)So Duff would rougly have about 5 or 6 inches max on Glenn. That would make him about 6'1" of 6'2" ?
VAVAVOOM said on 6/Dec/06
Slash is 1.79m (5ft10.5). Duff Mckagan is definitely 1.91m (6ft3. Anyone who thinks he's shorter than that, just watch the video of Paradise City and you'll see what a giant Duff is next to Slash who's at least an 1.5 inch above average himself! There are masses of shots in that video to give you a good indication of how tall Duff is.
Franco said on 16/Nov/06
looks as tall as his cigarettes. LOL j/k but man this guy smokes anything that burns.

hmm..looks 1.77cm indeed.
Anonymous said on 16/Oct/06
:) rob, what do you mean, he was always 5'9'' in the first place?
xyz said on 30/Sep/06
where did slash lose 1.5 inch? how does that happen?

Editor Rob
he didn't lost it, he just gave the 1.5 inch to glenn
Markus said on 17/Sep/06
Scott is like the typical "skinny makes you look taller guy"!
I once saw him on the same level of ground at about 20 meters away on a festival. Always thought was about 6'or even 6'1 on videos, but he looked about 5'10 or 5'11 to me. Couldnt get close enough to be sure though...and he needs a hamburger badly !
Glenn said on 17/Sep/06
At least thats what he appears.
Marcus said on 17/Sep/06
Whatever you say man :)
Glenn said on 15/Sep/06
Scott is 5-11.
Glenn said on 28/Jun/06
Duff is 6-3.Hetfield is 6-1.Axl is 5-8.Slash was appearing 5-9.
179toosmall said on 27/Jun/06
how tall are duff and james hetfield?
and glenn, how did you get so much fotos with celebs?
ron said on 29/May/06
a friend of mine partied with him one night very recently and said slash was around 5-9 and with a belly. he came with the ex STP singer who was very white, skinny and very weird
J. said on 5/Apr/06
He actually does look 5'10" in the photos above. Hmm ...he's said to be a sloucher so maybe he really is around the height he has said.
VH said on 19/Feb/06
I met him many times since a friend of mine works for him -- he is just about 5'10 but he slouches really bad! Slash is a majorly nice guy in addition to being an awesome guitarist.

I met Axl many times too and he is no bigger than 5'7" on a good day.
Glenn said on 15/Feb/06
he can look 5-8.bad friends joke about how short he is.
Marc said on 29/Jan/06
I know that Duff (guy with the blond hair, bassist for G'n R) is 6'2" (he said it himself. Slash has large hair and wears big boots, he is about 5'9 - 5'10".
175cm16andgrowing said on 28/Jan/06
I think he looks 5'10''... a friend of mine is 5'10'' and I'm 5'9'' (if I slept properly for a few hours and don't slouch) and the height difference between us isn't that much. The difference between Glenn and Slash... 2 inches I'd say.
Glenn said on 28/Jan/06
weiland looks 5-11.
BR said on 27/Jan/06
Glenn, would you happen to know Scott Weiland's height?
Glenn said on 23/Jan/06
ive seen him look looking 5-9.
Tuan said on 22/Jan/06
So is he 5'9" with those cowboy boots?
Marc said on 31/Dec/05
My friend, who is 6'1", met slash and said he's short, only about my height (5'10").
slashsbitch said on 19/Nov/05
i think he is probaly 5'9 - 5'10 and axl rose is 5'6 because it had his measurements in kerrang once
LP said on 16/Jul/05
His height has never been a problem for him. He's a great guitar player and I'm sure a really cool guy too. Looking at the old GN'R gigs, you can tell Slash is taller than Axl by at least 1 inch. Also, if you have a look at Live at the Hippodrome in France (1992) gig where Slash plays one song with Lenny (who's wearing massive heels), you can tell that Slash is still definitely taller than Lenny, even though he's not wearing his cowboy boots. Personally, I reckon Slash is 5'10'' - I saw him playing live earlier this year and he's by no means shorter than that.
morty said on 24/Jun/05
Slash is def not 6 ft! My friend had the honor of meeting him in Dublin and he said he towered over him. My friend is just around 6 ft. He also said slash was wearing his cowboy boots, which are bound to give him an inch or two. I would say that he is around 5 ft 9 but no shorter.
Lmeister said on 2/Jun/05
I think Slash is close to 5'10'' and Axl 5'7''-5'8''. This is a pretty good estimate of Slash he surely ain't 6'0''...
Paul said on 1/Jun/05
come on! he's got to be taller than that!! He does look taller than Axl by at least 2 or 3 inches. He looks like a 6 ft man to me.
