He's a decent 5'7 guy. Probably like 5'7.25 (171cm). I am really tall at 5'11.75 (182cm) The shoes i wear give me a 3cm boost easily so I'm 6'1. I have met him once. He seemed really tiny to me. I don't know if it's because hes so skinny. Was definitely a 14-15cm difference between us. He was like a midget in comparison lol. He only had sandals on though, while I had the 6'1 boots, so he was a midget in comparison.

He's not a solid 5'8.

This is simply not right. He is not more than 5-6 barefoot, and I may be a bit generous. I'm 5-8 1/4 and he was much shorter when I saw him on the street back in the day. Flea is not more than 5-3 barefoot. I'm not exaggerating down. I know my exact height and these guys were considerably shorter.
berta said on 2/Mar/22
maybe 5´8 but could be shorter. Never over thisö
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/21
Well, Arch, bad hair or not, it drew me to his page AGAIN!

5ft8. 😆👍🎶🌶️🤫
Arch Stanton said on 27/Feb/21
I thought he was 5'7 range, Billie Joe Armstrong isn't 5'7 surely?? Bad hair here LOL, reminds me of when Kelly Jones grew his hair in the mid 2000s, totally didn't suit him. Kiedis would be more suited to the greasy Mexican type ponytail.
asdfasdf said on 26/Feb/21
Anthony sometimes can look as short as 5'6, and at other times he looks average in between 5'8 and 5'9, I don't think he lost most height, I mean he's 58 not 88, he might have lost half inch but no more, anyway, I personally think he's on the 5'8 range. Nowadays probably in between 5'7 and 5'8. He has a stocky build that's why he looks shorter at times, John Frusciante is 1 cm taller than him and yet gives the impression of a 5'11 guy due to his slim proportions.
Slydawwg said on 8/Jan/21
I met him, personally don't know him though, however a few years back in late 2018 he was 5'5" absolute max. & as always, means nothing, as he with the band are marvel.

He looks at least 2-3 cm taller next to 170cm Billie joe Armstrong
Isabella's Dog said on 18/Oct/20
There’s a 1992 video where the rhcp accept the mtv award, marky mark introduces them and as Anthony gets on stage he shake hands with marky who’s 173 cm, Anthony looks the same height, maybe 1 cm taller. I think during his younger days he was almost 5’9. He stood between 173 and 174, nowadays, considering that he had endless back problems (including a broken back when he was a teen) he might have shrunk to 172-173 cm, there was something about him that made him look shorter, he had a very good posture back in the days, but being a natural mesomorph with huge shoulders made him look kinda stocky.

he is 5'6" or max 5'7"

Anthony Kiedis side by side and he is only 6'0"

172 now 175 peak height in his younger days
Drew Alexander said on 13/May/20
Anthony sings "I am small, but strong, I'll get it on with you..." in the tune "Cabron" from back in '02. I feel if he was 5'9 he'd never describe himself as being "small." Chad is 6'2"/6'3" and is wayyy over 6" taller than Anthony. I agree with the 5'6" height suggested earlier. I know it's hilarious to even debate this or have a forum for celebrity heights...we definitely value personal height as a social and sexual qualifier. A note for outside the US...I know this is ignorant of an American like me: Americans like me have NO IDEA what measurements or estimates you are talking about when you use centimetres or meters. Using the metric system for height in the USA is nearly like speaking in Calculus.
Alex McGuire said on 20/Apr/20
Definitely 1.75 cm, his former girlfriend Helena Vesteergaard is 173 and her height is 100% correct since she's a model, if you look at their picture together where she's not wearing lifters and they're both wearing sneakers he always looks a couple of cm taller
Sandy A Cowell said on 10/Apr/20
I took one look at Anthony’s picture and said “rock and roller” and, low and behold, he sings with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers! My boyfriend plays them in his car, and that is how I got into them myself.

5ft8 🌶😁🎼🎸🎤🚗📀
Bruno Bellido said on 25/Mar/20
a solid 5'6 man although back in the early90s through the mid-90s and 2000s he appeared to be slightly taller in particular about a range of 5'7- 5'8 and maybe his slender structure back in the 90s may make him seem him additionally taller like around 5'9- 5'10 but truth be told I love RHCP so much yes u too Anthoney Kiedis the leader of the band. but anyways, rob I think you should downgrade Kiedis like around 5'6 4/8. in my perspective, he really just doesn't appear that tall(5'9).
charlie191 said on 17/Dec/19
Rob, please can you add Frusciante, to me he looks like a weak 5’9” most of the times
Denise said on 13/Aug/19
If only Robert could get a photo with Kiedis. That would settle the debate. Either way, high 5'7" to weak 5'8".

chama said on 21/Dec/16
A guess he is 5'6" . He has half inch on Bruno Mars who is 5"'5"

LOL. He has 3-3.5" on 5'4" Bruno Mars. You probably were counting Bruno's big hair--which is not accurate.
Dude 173 cm said on 9/Jan/18
Kiedis doesn't have 2 inches in Flea and Frusciante is taller, Neymar easily has 1/4 inch
Chilean said on 6/Jan/18
Rob someday you will add again to frusciante and flea ?
Editor Rob
if I can find an old copy of the database with some of the comments I might look at those pages again.
Someguy said on 19/Oct/17
Yea I am fairly certain he is closer to 5'7.5" than 5'8". I think his height should be downgraded to 5'7.5"
HonestSlovene said on 18/Aug/17
5'8 is a decent enough claim, I just wouldn't put him over that mark. Most likely 172 cm range, 4 cm taller than Flea, 1 cm less than Fruiscante.
Headbanger said on 14/May/17
Rob, he isn't near to 5'8.
Dan said on 25/Mar/17
5'8 max. Maybe almost 5'9 with shoes. Depending on the shoe of course.
Yuval said on 16/Feb/17
Wow celeb like him is my height. What a joy!
I like his built to..nice looking body and good proportions that he maintains for 30 years.
perhaps his stature gives that impression of 5'9 guy, good singer anyway.

He's shorter than flea and flea is like 5'7" or 5'6" so this can't be right can it ?

they can look quite close to each other.

Yeah I say 5'7.5 ish , He don't seem 5 '8
Joe said on 30/May/15
I see Kiedis frequently. He's tiny. I'd put him the the 5'4"-5'6" range.
Seen them both said on 18/Jan/15
Guys, I'm 5-8.25 barefoot, there is no way AK is my height. I've seen them in person, he is 5-6 barefoot at most.
Can't Stop Addicted said on 10/Nov/14
Looks below this quite often. I'd list him as 5' 7.75". I think there's slightly less than 2 inches between him and Flea (5' 6").
Sito said on 15/Sep/14
Met both of them.... 5' 7" for Flea 5' 8 for Kiedis.... Definitely no shorter.
Almost 5 10 said on 21/May/14
I wouldn't be surprised if he was the same height as Tom Cruise - who I have at 5' 7.5". Anthony looks between 5' 7" and 5' 8" to me
Two Pump Jump said on 25/Apr/14
definitly not shorter than 5'8"... seems spot on for him
Paul177 said on 8/Mar/14
Actually, Flea doesn't look above 5' 6" with 5' 11" Damon Albarn.
Paul177 said on 13/Feb/14
Rob, do you think that Flea could be above 5' 6"? Sometimes him and Anthony can look within an inch of each other. He looks taller than Bieber to me.
Editor Rob
you couldn't rule it out
Paul177 said on 11/Feb/14
Anthony can look anything from 5' 6.5" to 5' 8.5"! He is well proportioned and very fit and strong, so he doesn't strike me as being short. I used to actually think he was a 5' 9-10" range guy, like myself! The same with Eminem. In fact, they look the same height to me.

My estimate is 5' 7.5" (171 cm). He has 1.5" on Flea.
MD said on 6/Feb/14

It would seem that even if you assume lifts with the heeled shoes that 5'8" seems to be a bit of an overlisting.
MD said on 6/Feb/14
With a 5'4"ish Bruno Mars (taking into account a slight difference in footwear, of course):

Anthony never looks short to me, but he's not more than 5'8". I can buy the 5'8" flat. He's incredibly fit!

Rob, guys, if Anthony is really 5'8", how tall do you think the oter guy (Serj Tankian) is? :)


Kiedis seems to be stretching a bit, Tankian looks like he isn't standing full height, I'd say at least 5'11, although we don't know what footwear they're wearing.
Pascal 5 10 said on 10/Oct/13
Anyone seen the YouTube clip of Kiedis having a scuffle with some bodyguards outside the Four Seasons Hotel? He didn't appear particularly short and looked at least 5' 8-9". He even lost his hotel slippers at one point! But then again, we don't know how tall the other guys were. He certainly wasn't dwarfed - or outmuscled either. He weren't taking any nonsense, held his own very well indeed!

Serj Tankian? I know he's listed as 6'1" everywhere, but maybe 5'11" - 6'0" is more realistic. I haven't seen enough of him to make a precise guess, but I'd be curious as well. To me he gives the impression of 5'10.5" - 5'11" in that one photo with Kiedis (I still wouldn't rule out 6'0" just based on that one photo though).
Craig 176 said on 23/Mar/13
He's not above 171, trust me. I've been observing his height since By The Way (2002) - long before I even knew of CelebHeights!

You sure he's a full 5'8" next to 5'6" Flea Rob? Proportionally looks a 5'7" ranger.

5'7"- 5'7.5 range.

wooga said on 10/Jun/12
Just saw a pic of him and elton john. He was his height. Also he wears lifts a lot. If you find a pic of him and Ice Cube as well, he is WAY shorter. At least 1.5 inches. Not a big guy, def not anywhere near 5 9 or 5 8
Yvette said on 5/Jun/12
His profile says 5'9 and I saw a pic of him and Heidi Klum. He is about her height. She has to be 5'9 or 5'10 herself to be a model.
wooga said on 23/Jan/12
Hes 5 7ish. Had only 2 inches on alicia silverstone and 2.5 on a weak 5.5 david spade. Also hes got one inch on flea

yeah 5ft7 at max or maybe even 5ft6.5 he looks short.

5'7.5 - 5'8. No way 5'8.5 nowadays...MAYBE 5'8.5 for his morning height, when he was young.

Very true chilean. I've always thought below 5' 8" for Kiedis. Can't see as low as 5' 7" flat though. 5' 7.5" fits him well.

Anthony looks 5'8" but nothing more. He's a very fit 140lbs, so that could be why people think he is taller.
178 said on 13/Jun/11
Rob, I am a gigantic Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. I know the most random trivia regarding the band and its members (both past and present).

Anthony Kiedis is certainly 5' 7.5" (171 cm) without shoes! As much as I hate to say it, you need to downgrade him by exactly 1 inch.

His 5' 8.5" and 5' 9" online listings would be referring to when he is in footwear in truth.

Here he is with 5' 7.5" maximum Iggy Pop and 5' 8.25" Ronnie Wood just for the record:

Their music knows no height limits mind. Bring on 29/08/2011 - 'I'm With You', then the extensive world tour!

i meet him an he is rather short. 5,7-5,8. i thnk it bugged him looking to me standing at 6,3
Mark said on 6/Apr/11
I don't think that Leo stands over one more grade... I guess Leo is ALMOST 6ft, so Anthony is more 5ft7 than 5ft8. Or even less...or there is somthng wrong with that pic.
krazy krippled! said on 2/Jan/11
Leo seems standing over one more grade than Anthony, otherwise Leo would be 6'1 with freakishly long legs.

I met Anthony last year in Malibu, California and he stands exactly the same height as me!! 5ft 7 and a half
I must say his a fairly built guy!!
KheMiZTREE ;D said on 2/Jul/09
5' 8" according to Kerrang magazine interview in 1990.
FirePower! said on 25/Jun/09
Anthony Kiedis is 5' 7.75" at the VERY shortest and 5' 8.50" at the tallest.

I personally believe that he is 5' 8" exactly (172.72 cm) during the afternoon. Take it to the bank!
KheMiZTREE ;D @180.35 cm said on 24/Jun/09
I believe that Anthony Kiedis stands at 5' 8", definitely NOT 5' 9". However, there is also a remote possibility that he may be 5' 7.75" but not any shorter!
Lmeister said on 24/Jun/09
I think that Antwan is a tad shorter than 5ft8.5. This was based on the image of Anthony with Glenn. Not to put Glenn down, but he did "upgrade" a lot of 5ft7-5ft9 guys. Anthony is 5ft7.5-5ft8.
bullet said on 21/Jun/09
there is a picture with anthony beside leonardo di caprio,anthony looks very short and small next to 5'11 leo.
i don't even think anthony is 5'8,probably more like 5'6,5'7...
it doesn't really matter if he's tall or not,the red hot chili peppers are the best band in this world that's for sure
The Dutchguy said on 3/May/09
ReACTivIZE, you're right, i noticed the height difference between Anth and John at the end of the Dani California video, so i changed my mind, Flea: 5'6, Anth: 5'8 and John is about one inch taller then Anth, so: 5'9 and Chad remains the solid 6'3
ReACTivIZE said on 29/Apr/09
I don't actually care how tall or short any of them are. I was surprised to find out that Anthony Kiedis is only around 5 feet 8 inches.

Up until around 4 years ago I used to think that he was 5' 11"-6' 0"!

They are amazing, my heroes!

As are Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World and R.E.M.
Leung said on 28/Apr/09
I was thinking the same thing. The difference between Flea and Kiedis is less than people expect, and I also believe that John is taller than Kiedis.
ReACTivIZE said on 27/Apr/09
Anthony is not 3 inches taller than Flea. In fact John is almost 1 inch taller than Anthony. If Anthony is 5' 9", then Flea must be 5' 7.25" and John roughly 5' 10". I know it is only an inch difference, but that inch makes all the difference. Chad Smith is definitely 6' 3" though.
The Dutchguy said on 26/Apr/09
Anth is 5'9, for sure

Flea 5'6
John 5'8
Anthony 5'9
Chad 6'3
The 5th Chili Pepper said on 18/Mar/09
I agree with Samuel. Anthony Kiedis is actually 5' 8" tall, but he looks far taller as he has a muscular physique, strong posture, a long face and a larger-than life stage presence.

He is also very assertive in interviews and plays his cards close to his chest when questioned, which gives him an aura. He looks ready to respond to questions immediately and commands a surveying expression, which makes him appear generally bigger than the interviewer.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers heights are as follows:

Flea, 5' 6.25"
Anthony Kiedis, 5' 8"
John Frusciante, 5' 8.75"
Chad Smith, 6' 3".

Anthony's dad's myspace page lists himself at 5"10. If you look at the pictures of Anthony standing next to his father, they look almost the same height. I would put Anthony at 5'9.
Dr Zephyr said on 10/Oct/08
i meet the chilis last night, and i am 5'10, chad towered me, john was a little shorter, if not the same size, flea was up to my lip about, and anthony was atleast 2 inches shorter then me
Dr Zephyr said on 10/Oct/08
In order of the Red Hot Chili Peppers from tallest, to shortest are: Chad Smith = 6'3, John Frusciante = 5'9, Anthony Kiedis = 5'8.5, Flea = 5'6 this is all correct as far as i know lol
A.C. said on 23/Aug/08
Based this photo with Madonna, I would say he's definitely shorter than 5'8.5. If she's 5'3.5 (which I think is pretty accurate), I'd put him at around 5'6:

I'd say it's time to downgrade him.

5'7" to 5'8", according to most evidence. Also, Dennis provides a good video where Kiedis is no more than 2 inches taller than David Spade...

I just met Anthony in NYC last night and he is definitely not 5'8". I'm 5'9.5" and he was far shorter than I am. I don't even think he's 5'7".
Smith said on 17/May/08
Oh yeah !! You're absolutely right, RHCP rule the world :). They're just brilliant live and their albums are really great. John is one of the better guitarists in the world too.
About their heights, 5ft 8.5 seems a bit small for Kiedis. On stage he looks more like a 5.10 guy, but I can be wrong. People look taller when they're on stage.
Leung said on 12/May/08
Smith says on 8/May/08
If Anthony Kiedis is 5 ft 8.5, then John Frusciante is at least 5.9 and easily 5.10. In all the videos I saw (and I watch a lot of RHCP lives), John is clearly taller than Kiedis. And, besides Chad, John is the tallest of the RHCP members.

They are my thoughts too, Frusciante is taller than Kiedis. I love RHCP, they have consistently made great albums over the years (excluding One Hot Minute) and are awesome live.
Smith said on 8/May/08
Perhaps it is because of the shoes John wears. I don't know about John's shoes but Anthony ofen wears sneakers.

i finally figured out why keidas would look 5-10 to me in 1990,91.i was 5-7 in the flatest of shoes.real flat.and kiedas was 5-8.5 to 5-9 in doc martins in one of my that the 5-10 versus 5-7.he had the advantage in footwear and height.if we wre both barefoot now,he might have an inch on me.tops.and even thats debatable.maybe less.

keidas and john could both be around 5-10 and just have freakish posture.i hear tall reports for john from friends that have me scrathing my head.their theory,and i had the same,from witnessing it,junkies lose height and seem to regain it when sober.wierd,but seems kinds true.

Considering the fact that Kiedis is a bit smaller than Frusciante, Kiedis should be given 5´8" max...i think 5´7.5" would be more accurate.

I saw an interview with Flea where he stated he was 5'7" and I saw another interview with Chad Smith in which he stated he was 6'3". I am positive about this. So the other two members you would have to estimate by looking at Flea, since he is closest in height. I've been told by mumerous people that John is 5'8 1/2". Which seems right. They said they knew for a fact and usually if you guess someone's height you wouldn't use 1/2 inches, you would round the number off. So I'm guessing this is his correct height. Anthony appears to be slightly shorter than John and definitely taller than Flea, so I'd say he is 5'8". I've seen them all in person, actually speaking with Chad, and being about 15 feet away from the others on the street. I actually was joking with a friend saying that if you look at pictures before Frusciante left the band, he looked slightly taller, which is odd since back then his posture wasn't as good (he slouched a lot). My friend joked back to me saying, "What heroin knocked an inch off Frusciante?" Who knows though. All the damage and malnutrition that he sustained could have done something to his spine. They say that after puberty your bones still grow until your thirty. They probably don't mean in length, but you could possibly cause deterioration. I don't know, it's really not that important. I'm bored and have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and sometimes I get caught up in things like this and realize I've just wasted half an hour checking height to weight ratios. I'm a ****ing weirdo, whatever. Peace.

Alright, Anthony!! "msn87" might be onto something here, except they are their barefoot heights and Chad should be only 6'2" barefoot. BTP...No one in the band is over 5'9" except 6'3" Smith! w/shoes My mom's 5'10", bro's 1/2" taller, dad's 6'ish, I'm about 6'3 1/2"! Point is they're shorter than my mom.

Now you say're right about California and Californication, it didn't occur to me! I think Patton just wants to nag Kiedis.
glenn said on 14/Aug/07
sorry i missed your post kimberly.dont know if you disappeared.markus-mr bungle and peppers both came out around the same time.hard to say.peppers was around since 1984.and bungle 1985 at might be earlier for going by first albums and demos.what everyone missed was the 1999 releases of california and californication.strangely i heard no comment on that.if anyone is taller,its keidas by a half inch or inch.for sure not patton.if anything,they are the same height i think.
Markus said on 13/Aug/07
Glenn I guess Kiedis and Patton are about the same height?

They have some longtime "war" going on because Patton supposedly ripped of Kiedus cool moves. Funniest thing I saw was Patton covering RHCP song Under the Bridge with Mr. Bungle, with sounded 10 times better than the original ! Kiedis isnt a good singer...his rapping is ok.
ismini said on 2/Aug/07
frusciante is taller than kiedis.flea is the sorter and chad is nearly 1.9 m
kimberly said on 15/Jul/07
hey glenn, please could you add youre own height to sort of compare, as the coments seem to discuss completely diferent mesurements. and also, please tell me how thw hell can i meet anthony kiedis me and my sister are mad about him . lots of love.

watch this: even if tom hanks is 6'0 he has a major height advantage over anthony, john, and flea Click Here
glenn said on 13/Jul/07
he look as big as 5-10 to me in the early 90s.but then i was 5-7,thinking i was 5-8.people always remark to me as to how short he im wondering if 5-9 was a possibilty too.
Elizabeth said on 12/Jul/07
Ok guys, Anthonys height is 5'10. I am positive of this because his girlfriend is 5'11, and Anthony is just a little tiny bit shorter then her when she isnt wearing heals. Look at pictures guys. And if you ever need clarification that that is Heather Christies, Anthonys girlfriend, height, just check her model agencies website. It will tell you that she is 5'11

msn87. 5'5.5 would be 1'66m, 5'5.75 would be 1'67m. Flea would be 5'5.75.
msn87 said on 12/May/07
here's a pic with the band in 2007 ;maybe Frusciante is 5'7...

Click Here

if so, my current estimates would be:

Michael "Flea" Balzary: 5'5.5 (1'67 m)
Anthony Kiedis: 5'8 (1'73 m)
John Frusciante: 5'7.25 (1'71 m)
Chad Smith: 6'2.5 (1'89 m)
MD said on 8/May/07
With 5'6" Flea:

I've seen him look taller than this, but I wouldn't put him anything over 5'8"
msn87 said on 8/May/07
red hot are one of my fav bands. i'm quite obsessed with them, so my shot at the individual members would be:

Micheal Balzary: 5'5.5
Anthony Kiedis: 5'8
John Frusciante: 5'8.5
Chad Smith: 6'2.5

So.. Guys.. How tall is John Frusciante? 5'11''? or 5'9''? Sometimes I see him very big... but, I can't believe that he is more than 179 cm..
UNK said on 28/Feb/07
Been a fan of rhcp and frusciante a long time... i would say John is 5'8".. him and anthony are about the same.. he's not 5'10".
london calling = said on 27/Feb/07
frusciante cant be 5'7. there is no more than half an inch difference between kiedis and frusciante with maybe frusciante being the tiniest bit taller.
Bombay Rocker said on 19/Feb/07
Frusciante looks like atleast 5 feet 10 to me. Glenn was it sarcasm when you said he is 5 feet 7 or you meant it? Have you met him? That's a shock for me if he's really 5 feet 7 since i always pictured him as being tall like atleast 5 feet 11 something.
bombay rocker said on 23/Jan/07
Hey glenn is frusciante really 5 feet 7? were you mocking there or saying he is 5 feet 7(look down at your comment on his height)?
Brad said on 16/Nov/06
I see Flea every year at NAMM, he's 5' 6". Wears ass-kicker boots. Anthony can't be more than an inch or 2 higher.
korana said on 19/Oct/06
i always thought he's 5 7..dunno why....just a lil shorter then me i thought, and im 5 7, almost 5 8 (172cm)
Sporky said on 9/Oct/06
Anthony Kiedis is cool...and hawt.

Just what I needed to know! *Edits her bar chart about her height in relation to her fave celebs* I am 5.5 inches smaller.
Markus said on 6/Sep/06
Nice, I'd like to see some of those pix!
He's my favorite singer...gonna see him play in 2 months again in Brussels.

Glenn, I did an add request on Myspace btw ! (Markus)
Glenn said on 6/Sep/06
Met Patton many times.idolized him once.5 photos with him.
Markus said on 5/Sep/06
Ah thats just what i wanted to ask about Mike Patton!
He's even a little bit taller than I thought then. I've seen him perform for about 10 times now and estimated him about 5-7 or 5-8...hard to tell when somebody's onstage and you're not.

Glenn did you meet Patton? He's about the greatest vocalist ever!
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Patton is the Glenn page for full details.thanks.

dominic, my dear, 177cm is not 5'8"
Moi said on 16/Jun/06
I'm 5'7 and I was close to kiedis, he is no taller than me. Maybe an inch taller and that's about it. He ain't 5'10. Flea is 5'6-5'6 1/2 and kieidis is probably 5'7 maybe 5'8. And I will also add that when your body fully develop you also risk in shrinkin abit. So it might be true that kiedis was an inch or 2 taller before.
the shredder said on 2/Jun/06
glenn , you look stoned in this pic lol.
Lmeister said on 28/May/06
LOL...I was right = ) again...He is 5'8'' like he said in one interview...
MD said on 25/May/06
This close to 5'9" seems kind of exaggerated. Truth be told, he and Flea are don't look that different in height, esepcially not over 2":

Flea is never 5'10'' , he is 5'5'' 5'6''! 5'5 is 1.65 and 5'6 is 1.68
Anthony is max. 5'8''1 inch = 2.5 cm, 5'7 = 1.70 which means 2'8 = 1.72,5
John Is a little bit taller than Anthony 178cm
Chad is very tall 190cm

Marilynn said on 10/Apr/06

Glenn said on 29/Mar/06
Keidas in 1990 would look a freekish 5-10.I agree on 5-8.
Rachel said on 28/Mar/06
He's definitely not over 5'8". I met him face to face backstage a few years back and his feet were bare. i am 5'8 and i'd say he was about 5'6".
Sarah said on 11/Mar/06
Well when i met them i was looking up at all of them ( im 5'2") flea is most definitely the shortest chili then anthony then john and then chad is the tallest. he is freeking giant. I would put Ant at 5'8", Flea at 5'6" John 5'9" to 5'10" and cahd is like 6'4"ish
Glenn said on 25/Jan/06

Caius said on 8/Nov/05
Anthony Kiedis is 5'6" tops. My wife met him where she worked. He had tennis shoes on and was shorter than my wife who is 5'6" in the tennis shoes she wore that day.
mcfan said on 22/Sep/05
5'9 for Kiedis.
absolution said on 30/Aug/05
hum.. hey rob, based on this picture with Heidi i think he´s definetily not 5ft8.75. he´s with a good posture on the pic.. looking on his height-max. but she, is with shoe with a hell shorter than anthony ones, and have a not good posture, looking shorter that she really is.
Trey61 said on 10/Jul/05
5'-8" is on the mark for Kiedis. I did a radio interview with him in the late 1980's and he and I were eye-to-eye. Flea is about 5'-5".
UNK said on 21/Jun/05
A-Bomb is way off on Flea. Flea is about 5'5"-5'6"... by far the shortest chili pepper... any chili's fan will tell you that.
A-Bomb said on 7/May/05
Can i interject here. I've got Ice Cubes dvd and there is a making of the wicked clip in which both Flea and anthony starred. Now they are all standing side by side to each other in an interview on what seems sturdy flat ground. Now we have cube down as 5'8. Flea was about two inches taller than Cube, so he's around 5'10". Now Anthony was very much crystally and clearly shorter than Cube and there are about 50 different frames in which you can see this. So Kiedis can only be seriously max 5'8" (he may not have shoes on). Can anyone else back me up, has anyone got this.
issheuhboy said on 10/Mar/05
I'd say he's a little shorter than Klum in that pic. He seems to be standing straight, and in her walking position she's not. I'd agree with Lmeister - 5'8.
Lmeister said on 10/Mar/05
Actually Anthony is 5 ft 8 in at least that is what he said in some magazine cannot remember where...
