Rob, is 5' 8.5" your estimation of his peak height?
[Editor Rob: yes I think somewhere in that range.]

As we can see in Guns N' Roses's pics , Duff is the highest one , but the other guys are pretty much the same height . Izzy was a bit taller than Axl and Slash , and Steven Adler was the shortest one . So , Izzy might be a STRONG 5ft9 , or maybe a weak 5ft 10 at the very most .

may be 5'11". guns was nothing without him, and since he wrote most of the songs it was best they didnt release any original material after he left. VERY talented song writer

I wonder if he seemed an inch shorter than Shatner in Star Trek because Doohan didn't wear lifts. Because he did seem shorter.

Here's Doohan in 1969 next to 5'10.5" DeForest Kelley:

And here's in 1992 with 5'7" LeVar Burton:

I think he was a solid 5'9" (or 5'8.5") during the original Star Trek, and shrunk to only a very little over 5'7" in his older days.

They'll all do it again after seeing the numbers The Police put on the board. Too bad Axl has a chemical balance problem in his noggin'. Last thing I want to see is them on package tour with Warrant, Quiet Riot, Cinderella, etc. in the future. Axl probably put on the Illusion volumes and threw the latest LP masters in the trash.

heard he was financially stable though.and he is playing a very small parts on the new cd.just recorded in january.
Lmeister said on 6/Mar/07
He had a major role as a songwriter in G'n'R. Slash has written a lot of kick ass solos, but Izzy wrote some of the best tunes of the 80s-90s...

Probably signed a screw contract with Geffen on the publishing when they walked in for the record deal. David Geffen had brilliant contract guys.
glenn said on 5/Mar/07

Brad said on 5/Mar/07
Far more talented than given credit for.

Glenn said on 29/Nov/06
Yngwie does wear heels.but he told me 6-3,and did look it.one pic,he must be bending his knees with me,in the gutter,Im guessing.
Glenn said on 29/Nov/06
Major songwriter and guitar player to Appetite For Destruction.great guy.

[Editor Rob: what about this Yngwie guitarist Glenn? Before I add him to the site I see that it was mentioned on another page he has said both 1.83m and then you said he says 6ft 3 to you. Does he wear 2-inch heels out and about the place?]
