Elvis, previously Declan McManus, is still musically active now, I’m pleased to say. He was a good part of the New Wave movement, churning out some very catchy songs.

I’m giving him 5ft9 as there’s only one box.

Hard to see him over 5 ft 9 now, I'd have thought more 5 ft 8 range.

Look online he is not a strong 5'9. I think a downgrade is needed.

Nowadays he is 5'8 at most.

Peak 5'8.5

Elvis was always mentioned as 5’8” earlier in his career, I doubted he was even that. He was described in a Melody Maker review as
“ this pugnacious little man at the mike”.
He’s been a great writer/performer for 45 years.
His bassist, Bruce Thomas, is renowned as one if the finest ever.

I didn't know Elvis Costello had a page here - excellent! I liked his New Wave band Elvis Costello and the Attractions, and bought some of their 45s. I believe Elvis has gone on to bigger things now, and it'll be worth checking them out some time soon.

5ft9.25. 🎶💿🎶

This guy knows way more about music than even I do! He's a walking music encyclopedia. Can't believed he was getting booed on stage in the UK, so ignorant, he's a superb singer songwriter. I'd love to write and perform with him and discuss music! Not many have that 60s vibe in 2020 but he's still got it! Taller than I thought but I think he's a bit taller than his wife, who ironically looks like she could be Elvis (Presley)'s daughter!!

Met Elvis in Nashville last week. 5'9" is spot on

I was about to delete this comment before I looked at the page it was being submitted on ☺️

Thanks Rob.
When you get a chance could you give me your estimate?
If you type in Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe there's a YouTube video where they are standing face to face for at least 5 mins. Problem is Costello has a hat on so I feel it is harder to judge. There's a lot of Adam Corolla and Nick Lowe but at almost 70 Lowe could be down an inch. Id say 6'1 peak but these musicians may wear boots with thick heels so hard to say. I think Costello at 5'9 is fair maybe was 5'9.5 30 yrs ago.

Rob, how tall do you think the singer Nick Lowe is? I think around 6'1ish maybe?
Editor Rob
never really looked at Nick sadly.

Rob, I've been following Elvis since 1978 and he's never looked over 5'8" !

He looks an inch taller than his wife Diana Krall who's 5'8.75".

It is possible, now that he's in his 60s, that Costello is starting to have a fraction of height loss and is more of a flat 5'9" at best.
Sam said on 9/Apr/14
I thought Elvis looked within a half inch of Paul McCartney, which reinforces to me that McCartney topped out at 5'9.75"-5'10" (as did, by extension, Lennon), not a strong 5'10.5".

Yeah I'd guess Costello at 5'8.5" actually.

agreed. possible weak 5'8 now. james taylor is 6'3 but i doubt he is more look at him next to Elton John he may be 6 inches or 7 bigger tops. but yeah Costello is similar to Elton John now
Sam said on 3/Apr/14
One of the Attractions was definitely taller than Costello but considering how Costello's not tall, the guy could be like a strong 6'1" or near 6'2".
Arch Stanton said on 29/Mar/14

James Taylor really looks nearer 6'5" there than 6'3". Costello's legs and posture are not full but you can see he'd be barely taller than Elt. If you looked though he is taller than Furnish who I always thought was about 5 ft 8. Maybe Rob's right on 176, but James Taylor, even though slightly nearer the camera with Stallone like posture looks taller than 6'3" to me.

Sam said on 28/Mar/14
Yeah, "tall" is ridiculous for Costello, I can't remember where it said it, perhaps that he gave a tall impression because of his lean build. I see that James Taylor has a head over him and he looks barely taller than Elton John. I believe there's a photo where he's similar in height to Paul Rudd and I saw Rudd in person at around 5'8.5".

5' 8" at most at Bleeker Bob's next to me in '82 in NYC, huge neck.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Mar/14
@Sam. See him next to 6'3" James Taylor!!
Sam said on 26/Mar/14
I wouldn't guess under 5'9" for Costello. He can look close in height to 5'10" range claiming guys (but a lot of those are probably rounding up). Like David Bowie, I swear I used to read descriptions of Costello as "tall", haha.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Mar/14
Nice one Rob! He can look a bit shorter at times though.

I use to see 5'8 listing.
