Saw Brian up-close at a Placebo concert a few years back, and he looked close to 5' 6". I'd say he's a shade under 5' 6" in the evening (which was when I saw him play). Placebo are a great live band. Brian was totally dwarfed by the gangly Placebo bass player, Stefan, who looks about 6' 2" to me.

Rob, the more I look at him with other people in pics the less I'm convinced he's a full 5'6" guy.
Would you rule out 167 cm for him?
I think it would be spot on for him as he definitely looks taller than 5'5" but not quite a full 5'6".
Editor Rob: would need to find time to look again to see if he looks under.

I agree with PlaceboFan, this guy could use a downgrade. He probably wakes up at 168.5cm and goes to bed at 167cm.

Rob, would you exclude 167cm or shorter for this guy, giving those photos.
with 5'9" Jared Leto
with 5'7" Gerrard Way
with 5'10" Robert Smith
with 5'9.5 David Bowie
Editor Rob: it could be argued he falls into the weaker 5ft 6 range.

About a full head under legit 6'4 Olsdal so 5'6 seems legit.Great singer.

He has a well proportionate body. Seeing him alone gives you the impression he's a bit taller than his actual height.

I read an interview with him and he claimed 6ft4!

I met him. I'm 160 cm (5' 3") he's a bit taller. I'd say he is 5'6"...
Mari said on 11/Feb/08
I've met him too. I'm 5'4'', and he's taller. I believe 5'6'' is accurate.

Tiny. and the BASS player is tall, Brian is the guitarist. Stefan Olsdal plays bass. Why were you in their dressing room when you obviously know nothing of the band. You filthy little thing.

I was talking to him before a concert, in his dressing room and I would say tah he is a little bit shorter than me I'm 1.69 Mts he was in socks, so he is probably around 1.66 or 65, the guitar player is very very tall.

I figured we were the same height when we met, and it turns out I was right. I'm 5'6".

i'm exactly 5'2 or 158 cm, and i met him. he's taller than me, i think it's true that he's 5'6.
cendy rovini said on 15/Feb/06
...it would be cool if he's really only 158cm... because I also often said 158cm visiting dating sites etc. to shock the heightists there... but I think he is 5" 6' and very nice and sexy...

He is 5'6''. He isnt the kind of guy who lies about trivial things like those. He also seems proud of his height because it gives him the whole girl/boy look that he loves. Shortie for a boy, kind of average for a girl, so I definitely don't think he would exaggerate his height.
Moi said on 12/Jan/06
