Next to crouch he’s looks 6-3

Look at the picture they are pretty close in height James stands with his head down and there still looks like only 3-3.5 inches , if you want to see what a actual 4-4.5" looks like see David Haye with wlad klitchko" where the two look nowhere near the same height, or likewise with LeBron James who has 4-4.5" over Dwayne wade

6’5.5 in the 1” shoe so his listing is probably close to accurate. Worst case maybe the 194 he’s listed

@ Arch Stanton - You are very welcome, Rob is not annoyed so don't worry! Keep enjoying celebheights!

My Mum and I still can't get the Don Partridge "Blue Eyes" song out of our minds!

Blue eyes looking at me
Hope you're liking what you see

Blue eyes look my way
Make today my lucky day

Cheers Arch!

@ Arch - The only instrument I ever tackled learning was the violin. I was brought up on classical music, for the first 5 years of my life. I didn't properly hear a pop song until I was 5 1/2. When I hear the lyrics of early 60s songs, I can understand why they upset my Mum. She was in a foreign country and her husband had left her, but I've heard both sides of the coin now. In my Mum's later years, she had total respect for my Dad's wife and how well she brought up her sons.

That I went on to like prog rock isn't surprising to the few who know I was brought up on classical. I would love to learn to play the piano in all or any of its forms. I know it is a skill you have - and can improve on - for a lifetime. Enjoy yourself mastering it!

Cheers Arch! 😁👍...🎹...XXX

Thanks so much Rob, Sandy and Nik, so kind of you. As long as we're good on that Rob, I wasn't sure as you seem like a no BS kind of guy, I was worried I'd annoyed you! Jazz piano yeah, the most demanding thing I've ever tried to learn in my life but also the most fulfilling, it's pure art! Currently working on Scott Jopin's Maple Leaf Rag!
Editor Rob
I'm certainly not annoyed 🤝

Rob, could he reach his claim out of bed?
Editor Rob
Well it's likely he's not far off it.
Nik Ashton said on 17/Oct/19
@ Arch Stanton - I don’t believe Rob thinks like this, he admires and likes all visitors unless they are wholly disrespectful to celebrities or other visitors, which you are not of course. Celebheights is Rob’s livelihood and it is a job that suits him so much and it is a project that he is so committed to so Rob will have so much time for people who enjoy spending their leisure time on the site.

The Don Partridge “Blue Eyes” song had been on my mind a lot recently, probably heard it on “Radio Leeds”!

Cheers Arch,

@ Archie Blue Eyes - I have always had a soft spot for you because you were the very first person to have written to me. In all honesty, I can't imagine that Rob has any bad feelings about any of us. I have only felt warmth from Rob and I am sure he feels the same way about all of us. He respects that we have our lives and interests in whichever form they take. I think it's a fabulous idea to get involved with piano playing. I am a massive fan of all things musical, and I feel that you are enhancing your life by introducing musical skills into your interests.

All the very best to you Arch!

Sandy XXX 😉👍
Arch Stanton said on 9/Oct/19
Thanks Sandy. I don't think I'm welcome here though, Rob hasn't been himself since I said about spending more time on piano and some comments about celebrities. I think he thinks I'm an @sshole, never speaks anymore! I thought my question about a sub alpha search bar was a decent one...
Editor Rob
In the 279 days of 2019 I've made 5469 comments so it's an average of nearly 20 comments a day, which isn't too bad I thought 😎
I do try to read every comment (including those that don't get seen), but unfortunately cannot reply to them all. It all boils down to time available and prioritising tasks. It's an ongoing effort to keep the site at a level that is viable 🤞

As for sub-dividing, I understand the idea, but am not sure about the time/worth factor.

He is the tallest celebrity on the Strictly Come Dancing page!

@ Christian 6’5 3/8” - It is a bit OTT!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/19
@ Arch Stanton - Great to see you popping in! 😁👍
Caldoni said on 3/Oct/19
@Arch Stanton exactly. Crouch looks 6-10 if James claim is correct. Which it isn’t because crouch is nowhere near 6-10. Good point
Arch Stanton said on 2/Oct/19
If he's 6'5.5 Crouch is pushing 6'10. 194 seems about right, but I wouldn't bet on him measuring taller than Skarsgard or peak Goldblum.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Oct/19
Sorry, but I'm not familiar with him so I can't say. All I know is that his 6'5.5" claim is unnecessary, assuming he's 6'4.5" as listed.
Nik Ashton said on 30/Sep/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Yes, a very good idea! It’s an idea I like very much!
Nik said on 29/Sep/19
@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - How tall do you think he is?
Canson said on 29/Sep/19
@Christian: 6’4.5 may really be enough for him. Possibly he’s even a strong 6’4 like I am afternoon
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/19
@ Rob and Nik - I have just noticed David Seaman in the photograph. That has given me an idea....
Nik Ashton said on 29/Sep/19
@ Rob - That’s what I thought!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Sep/19
No need to claim 6'5.5", 6'5" is enough.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Sep/19
@ Caldoni - It's always a worthwhile contribution to hear from people who have actually SEEN the Celebrity in question.
Nik Ashton said on 27/Sep/19
Thanks Rob!
Caldoni said on 27/Sep/19
I’ve seen in Liverpool airport many times when he played for them. He’s not over 6-3. Seriously. Go compare with other people. 6-3 on the button.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Sep/19
Rob finally decided to pull out a listing for David James. Rio Ferdinand old buddy who was always an inch above him.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/19
I knew a guy who had James as a surname. He was intelligent and interesting and claimed to be 5ft8.5. Funny thing is he was considerably taller than most people I knew who claimed that height!

This Mr James is 8" taller than the (clearly honest) Mr James that I knew, so assuming he's as truthful as my friend was, he gets 6ft4.5.
