I thought Joe was average range like 5ft9-5ft11 while Paul Simonon and Jones were well over 6ft!

Think 5'7 range, probably 5'7.5.

In a book about The Clash, Mick Jones is listed as six feet tall, as is Paul Simonon, I believe. Only Topper Headon was shorter than Joe among the main Clash line-up.

Rob how tall do you think fellow Clash member, Mick Jones is?

He towered over Joe. I would guess anywhere from 6ft-6ft3

I saw an article a long time ago, no idea where, that claimed Joe was 5'6", but 5'8" is definitely a better guess.

5'8 is accurate yes. I met him in 2001, I'm 5'8 and seemed around the same/slightly shorter than me on the photos we took. Mick Jones was quite a bit taller than me. Legends!

Whatever his height, he cast a long shadow.

That sounds like an awesome show. Wish I was there.

When the Clash hit the deck at Shea Stadium opening for The Who in '82 I knew I was seeing a show I'd be talking about for years....now decades.

5'10. Complete genius in every sense of the word.

Funny thing is, I saw a site that had Strummer listed at 5'5". I never thought he was that short but never really knew how tall he was.
Brad said on 15/Aug/06
5' 10" from what I remember in '82, but he had on those "Combat" boots. He was far more talented than people gave him credit for.

I know rare cases,for example,A friend tells me he is 5-7,when he is 5-9.I sleep all day.this is shortly after waking.6pm?

I don't think he would wear lifts... but why would he put 5'8" on his license? that's what i was commenting on.

And I thought you said you were 5'8" in the morning, making you barely 5'8" through out the day, right?
Glenn said on 16/May/06
Strummer was close to 5-10.and I am 5-8.bad photo to judge.I witnessed this man many times.5-9 minimum.why would he wear lifts? his knees are bent.got it UNK?
Glenn said on 16/May/06
Strange.he appeared closer to 5-10 to me.
