If he's 6'1" are his sons about 6'6"?

Closer to 6ft today but quite likely a strong 6ft1 in his prime.

I once walked into a pub for the sole purpose of having a pee and I saw a very suave Bryan Ferry singing 'More than This' on a giant screen! I ended up staying for a drink to watch some more!
I would definitely say 6ft1 is right for him. That's exactly what I would have guessed!

Rob, how likely is 186cm peak?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure he'd have been that tall.
said on 18/Aug/15
184cm today, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he could be around that now]

Looked 6ft1½-6ft2 in the 70's and 80's.

I see he wears quite high heels now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Oct/14
Could be down to 6ft0½ now

I saw him in London. He has thin legs and is quite broad chested. I would estimate height at 6 feet one and half.

I have seen Ferry from about 4 metres away at a film premiere in London (Adventures of Baron Munchausen in 1986/7ish). I would. He had average sized heels on black shoes)> I am 6 feet one and he looked about the same height.

Anyone stood up next to Ferry. Looks about 6'4 on stage but in real life 6 1

Some more comments on this from people who have met him would help.
Rastus said on 12/Jun/14
I think the 6ft 1.25in peak comment is spot on, with probably 6ft 0.25in now at nearing 69 years old with a bit of a slouch. Others to compare with in the same group were Phil Manzanera at nearly 6ft 2in and a bass player in the 70s called Sal Maida who was 6ft 4in and markedly taller than Bryan or Phil. Also useful to refer to Live Aid where Bryan, wearing flat soles tennis shoes, was easily 2 inches taller than David Gilmour.

I met Bryan in September 1982 in Brighton. I am just a little over 6 ft - but I was amazed that Bryan was so much taller than me! My assumption was around 6 ft 3. As an aside, his father and mother were also there - his mother told me they lived in the lodge of his estate - and his father was also taller than me by a good 2 inches.
peter said on 18/May/14
Bryan ferry was never 6 feet 3. at most 6ft 1"
PPS said on 12/May/14
Bryan was 6 ft 3 in the 1980s.

Anyone stood right up to Bryan Ferry and seen what height he is?
jack said on 2/Jan/14
does he look short 185?
prime said on 27/Dec/13
HOW tall is bryan ferry in real life without shoes?
prime said on 19/Dec/13
Anyone meet Ferry on his last tour who can confirm height?
prime said on 19/Nov/13
I think 6 feet one inch maximum is correct. He does wear cuban heels these days - see with Wogan in Proms in park. He is quite slim framed which makes him look a little taller. His sons are alot tallere tahn him especially Otis and Isaac (6 feet three?)
William Leair said on 18/Nov/13
I saw Bryan last night I would say he is about 6 foot one
paul said on 16/Nov/13
6 feet 1. just saw him with a midget he was about 5 feet taller than the midget.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/13
"Peak height was 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"
He had 2-3in on Jerry Hall. Very dapper bloke...saw Roxy Music's video for 'Avalon'. That white tux is awesome.
sandrax said on 19/Aug/13
how tall is he really? 6 feet 1" or taller? Anyone met him who can confirm?
Jim said on 9/Mar/13
Somehow this guy looks alo taller than he is. He apperaed on Lottery with Dale winton and Winton towered over him. Winto is 6ft 2 yet ferry is supposed to be 6' 1". The difference on screen looked several inches.
smith said on 16/Feb/13
I think he looks alot taller than he actually is. Tailored suits and heels? 1.85 is his height but can look 1m 88. HOW???
jojo said on 15/Jan/13
Belly + chicken legs + nice suit.
patricia said on 25/Dec/12

frank said on 22/Sep/12
1.853 m. Imeasured him for a suit

One of my favorite artists. 6'1" seems about right for Mr. Suave and Sophisticated. Bill Gedeon--Bowie is about 5'11" or so, hardly a midget.
bill gedeon said on 16/Nov/11
6'-1" is still pretty tall compared to the size of say most rock/pop stars..Compared to Bryan Ferry, Mick Jagger and David Bowie are midgets..
said on 4/Sep/11
Rob, 6"2(188cm) peak?
[Editor Rob: I don't think he ever looked that tall.]
bojo said on 28/Jul/11
with high heels at 1m86
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/11
Still looks 6ft1 now at age 66. 6ft2 peak?
jackson said on 8/Mar/11
Otis is about 3 inches taller than his father. Bryan is the shortest of all the family. His four sons are all taller with Otis being the tallest.
said on 6/Mar/11
His Sons seem to have all came out at different heights : Click Here
i think only one son, Otis Ferry, got as tall or a little taller than Bryan.

peter pan said on 14/Dec/10
Ferry 1m 85.
charlie boy said on 4/Dec/10
I saw him on stage and he looked very tall but then I saw him at Heathrow and he looked around 6 feet one inch. I notice that he wears shoes with quite high heels these days. I would say 6 1 (maximum) is his height. Saw jerry hall and she is about 5 feet 9- 5 feet 10.
said on 31/Oct/10
rob do you think 6'0 today?
[Editor Rob: he might be nowadays]
michelle said on 22/Jul/08

Bryan can't be 6'1 if Alex Turner is 5'9.5 Click Here
Rackon said on 2/Nov/06
Brian Ferry, whom I met several times in the 70's was certainly over 6 feet, so I think 6'1" or 1 1/2" is right on. My 6' tall boyfriend was friends with Bryan and occassionaly sent him song suggestions (Funny How Time Slips Away was one). We used to get to travel with the band while they were touring the midwest. When my BF was standing next to him, Ferry was taller.
Eno, although I only met him once in 1972, seemed around 5'7". Don't remember what he had on his feet however - he was doing his laundry at the time. I don't remember Phil Manzanera being taller than Bryan. Andy was tall too. God bless 'im, Andy helped me with a music theory problem once when we were with the band in CLeveland. (He and Ferry had been school teachers before they were rock stars.)
Nice people- God I loved that band!
Glenn said on 13/Sep/06
Eno 5-5 now.more in his prime.
Glenn said on 13/Sep/06
Yeah,I agree.he seemed 6ftish to me.
Anonymous said on 12/Sep/06
Is he really this tall? I'd have thought he was 6 ft, no taller. One other guy in Roxy, Phil Manzera (hope I got his name right)was taller I think.
Mr. T said on 12/Sep/06
Roxy Music guy? I heard 6.1.25". I guess that's the most accurate measurement.
Other Roxy Music guy (now producer, ambient pioneer, solo artist and personal hero) Brian Eno is a pretty small guy. Couldn't have been more than 5'6" or 5'6.5" at his peak. Glenn said 5'5" was possible.
