What is going on with this page? A few months ago the average guess was like a few mm under Rob's billing, I'm 99% sure it was 189.5, and then just a few weeks ago or like a month ago the average guess had shrunk by a few mm which in itself was quite a lot though still not unbelievable. Now it's suddenly 188.9 cm? Is some obsessive person just spam voting him as 6'0.75 for fun?
Editor Rob
I think a few lowballs indeed, guy has been banned from voting.
dreus23 said on 21/Jan/23
One of those people who appear shorter on their own than they do with other people. Stocky guy with a big head and yet somewhat balanced proportions, generally just looks 6' flat proportionally. However, looking at Mayer with other people, he always looks huge, and I wouldn't be surprised if he's the full 6'3 as he claims. Mayer doesn't exactly seem like a height conscious person either, often slouches in pics and whatnot

The full 6'3 really isn't a stretch

He's claimed 170 range, do you think it's accurate?

He got big head which make him look not as tall as he actually is

Scooter, I think Gary Clark Jr is a solid 6’5. I’m 6’2.5 and when I’ve met Gary, he’s noticeably taller than me.
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 30/Apr/20
John Mayer is an inch taller than Hugh Jack man because John is 190 cm and Hugh is 187 cm tall.

6'2.75"/190 cm sounds right for his height.

Rob how tall do you think gary clark jr is. I saw a picture of the two playing together and he almost seems taller that john mayer. I read on the washington post that he claims 6'5.

He looks 6ft 2 quarter range to me than 6ft 3!!!!
GiveItAllAway5555 said on 22/Jul/19
Rob, would you classify his hairline (in his younger years) as quite low for his eyelevel? Seems like it has gotten a little higher in the last years. I never considered his forehead huge in those days.

Could he have had a hairlevel of almost 2 inches when the picture was taken?
Click Here
Editor Rob
No, I wouldn't have said it was low based on early 20's. By 40 it doesn't seem much different, I mean there may be a small fraction difference.
SnerhagAip7777 said on 23/Apr/19
Rob, how long is his head and is it about equal in e-c and e-h? Looks to be.
Editor Rob
Seems like he has quite an equal distribution and doubt less than 10-10.2 range.

Big Rob, how tall would you say the man on the right is, given same shoes being worn with Mayer slightly slouching cheers!

Editor Rob
Sometimes Mayer can lose 1-2 inches in poses, so not impossible the guy is 5ft 9 range.
Thomas6ft1 said on 17/Jan/18
I think he's just 6'2" guy claiming 6'3" on his tennis shoes. No way is he legit 6'3" though.
Redwing said on 23/Dec/17
Hey rob are they all standing properly in mayers picture above? Tiger looks 6'1 with urban
Editor Rob
I wouldn't say 6ft 1, but he can look near 184 at times, but typically is one of the more honest stars out there.
Canson said on 18/Nov/17
Agree with Junior even if it’s 6’2.25 vs 6’2.75. He doesn’t look like a true 6’3”
Jeremy said on 10/Nov/17
189-190 191 is pushing it
Junior said on 2/Nov/17
5'7 listed Katy Perry with less footwear and still doesn't look more than 7.25in shorter than Mayer. 6'2 for Mayer is a shout and generous.

6'2.75 for him.

@jay said on 4/Mar/17

At least 6'1 claim 6'3 , 6'0 is extreme low. For me i think he is 6'1.75 barefoot
jay said on 4/Mar/17
no way is john mayer 6'3"! he is barely 6'0 if that!
HonestSlovene said on 27/Jan/17
188-190 cm I could go with. 6'2.5" or 189 cm flat is most likely his height since he barely looks taller than legitimate 6'2" guys.
S.J.H said on 11/Jan/17
No way over 190cm. 6'2.75
MrTBlack said on 29/Nov/16
Although he does look about the same with Ashton, he looks a full 6'3" for the most part.
spainmen191cm said on 28/Oct/16
Rob, I dont think this guy is a full 6ft3 he is the same height as Ashton Kutcher, if he is a 6ft3 Kutcher is also. I think 6ft2.5-75 might be a better listing
Click Here
berta said on 17/Oct/16
he doesnt look like a big 191 guy i think he could be more in the 189-190 range
spainmen191cm said on 15/Oct/16
Rob, I think that if this guy is really 6ft3 Kutcher also has to be near it look at this photo. Maybe he is a little bit under and he rounds up
Click Here
S.J.H said on 1/Oct/16
6'3 a round up for sure. 6'2.5 a good shout
Brad said on 6/Sep/16
Strong 6-3. Wears boots a lot so he looks 6-5 easy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
A fraction below this is possible
Arch Stanton said on 4/Sep/16
[Editor Rob: anywhere in 6ft 2-3 is arguable, at times he really can look 6ft 2 other times I think this guy is near his claim. Maybe that photo is close up and reduced height?]

Seeing him on stage wiuth Keith Ubran he really looks minimum 6'3, but yeah he can look 6'2.5 quite a lot. He might be similar height to Brandon Routh. Maybe give him a 6'2.75 (190) listing instead of the 191?

Not convinced he's a strong 6'3" barefoot, I think maybe 6'2 1/2" but in shoes he'd be around that mark for sure.

I think 6ft 3 is fine for John. He is atleast the same height as Bob Saget, if not a bit taller ( go to 9:37 of the video)

6'1.5" flat.

Is this the same Joe who says Clint Eastwood was max 6'2.5? Seems like he has big height issues with the taller guys LOL. 6'2.5 is arguable but he's clearly not only 6'2" or under.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
Rob can you remove the ? from the end of Daughter? Great photo for height comparison. Keith's shoes looking a bit sus here has to be said. Amazed at the size of John's head compared to Tigers! If think it's pretty clear he's obviously around this.
Darren510 said on 31/Dec/14
Wow I'm a bit surprised to see his so tall. I figured him for maybe 5'11, but I never really took a good look at him until now.

This looks like a less confusing shot of the same pic you gave:

But still manages to look 6'3".
Joe said on 30/Dec/14
Looks like he's pretty much what he claims. He can look 6'2" range with posture though.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo and songs like "Your Body is a Wonderland", "Gravity", "Why Georgia", "Slow Dancing In a Burning Room", "Heartbreak Warfare". "Something like Olivia", "Paper Doll", "Say" and "Daughters? I think he looks pretty near what he claims. This site's Brad who's genuinely very tall said Mayer was looking near 6'5 in boots.
Joe said on 26/Dec/14
Here is the site which you should check out, Rob.

I think he's in the 6'2" range. He has a horrible posture.

John is a legit 6'3". I'm 6'4" and he walked right by me after his set at ACL in 2007 where I was working backstage. He was barely shorter than me. I was surprised at how tall he was as I usually tower people. He's a tall guy as well. Hell of a guitarist too.
Joe said on 12/Dec/14
@juan: Well, he does give me an impression of 6'2.5" but I don't expect him to be a flat 6'2". Since, your claims are true, I won't do any further negotiations. He can look 6'2 range. Here he is with Justin Timberlake(5'11.5")

Plus, there's not even a single pic of him where he looks 6'3".

im from his home town(nh).(but now live in new London) and have seen him several times ,,, he is a legit 6'3 In shoes! he is prolly 6 2 barefoot.. but since your site says theses are barefoot estimates, your hight on mayer is incorrect.
Joe said on 20/Jul/14
@ MM: they don't have same eye level, if you look carefully, John is looking up to him.
Joe said on 1/Jul/14
@ MM: You can clearly see that John Mayer has a camera advantage, interviews are made in such a way that John looks taller, I read it somewhere.
MM said on 29/Jun/14
I think John's height is legit. Willie Geist is apparently 6'4 right? Never mind the hair, look at their eyes...they're almost at equal eye level Click Here
184.9 on a bad day said on 24/Jun/14
Just looks him with Jimmy Kimmel, Justin Timberlake and Adam Levine. Looks the same as Kutcher, therefore he is atleast 1.89. And why Rob listed him at 1.91(maybe john pay for), Rob know what he does , he's a specialist in height.
Joe said on 20/Jun/14
@ 184.9
" 6'3 is near of the truth", what are you saying is baseless, on what basis you think he's 6'3, there are a lot of people who work with him and claim is not taller than 6'2.
184.9 on a bad day said on 15/Jun/14

Her is coming to my town on 20th September, if I get an opportunity, I will definitely see how tall he is, I'm 6'1.
strong said on 15/Apr/14
Agian I come back with another proof, I think John Mayer should be downgraded to 6'2.5(189 cm), here he is with 6'2.5 Ashton Kutcher, Ashton is closer to camera so he's looking taller but if they were at same distance from the camera, they could have been identical plus they have equal shoulders, assuming equal heads,
John Mayer shouldn't be more than 6'2.5

Click Here
James Richardson said on 5/Feb/14
I've met him, he is 189-190 cm, I'm 6'3.75 which is equivalent to 192.5 cm, but I think he gives me a look of being an inch shorter than me at maximum, its hair I which makes him come across as 191,hair can really fool people with their heights,thats why many sites also claim that he's 6'4,but I think he is 6'2.5-6'2.75 or 189-190.
He's not 191 cm, I can say that because I'm closer to his height and I make it out.Many 5'10 ers or 6 footers will easily believe he's 6'3 because of the angle which are eyes set to see a thing higher than us.
MM said on 31/Jan/14
I think John's height is legit. Maybe those boots were designed to look like lifts but are normal. Here he is wearing standard shoes with Gary Clark Jr. who's about the same height and he's wearing a hat. Throughout the performance to the end when they hug, they seem like the same height Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
Rob what's your opinion on the boots? I'm not sure they're lifts Bob, I think it's just the design of the boots which are high and make it look like he's wearing big lifts. For sure though that sort of design boot would be the type to have a 3 inch lift or something in them though.
Editor Rob
you could fit lifts in them, but I don't know the actual make of them.
Bob said on 23/Jan/14
Even at 6'3" John Mayer feels the need to wear shoe lifts when on TV. Here he is in a recent interview with his girl friend Katy Perry, who is also wearing heals. Look at how chunky his footwear is, you can see the lifts in his shoes by how elevated the laces are.

Arch Stanton said on 22/Oct/13
He looks it. Intimidating, and I don't mean just his height. A good looking and multi-talented guy "who knows he is", such confidence and talent combined are a lethal mix.
Roger said on 7/May/13
I was cutting some particle board to use on my kitchen renovation last week and I needed a piece that was exactly 6'3" long. I didn't have a tape measure handy so I just grabbed John Mayer and
got him to lay down while I marked my next cut.
Turns out the piece fits perfectly, so I can confirm his height is 6'3" as shown on here.
Brad said on 26/Apr/13
As listed. 6 feet 5 in boots with ease.
thomas said on 23/Mar/13
I am a desk clerk a the front desk , I saw him yestarday he played at the local amphiheater and when he checked in he was taller than me (185) cm and what people seing is 190 cm is true no more no less (6,03) true height.
rene said on 23/Aug/12
No matter how tall he is, he is super hot! I'd be in love with him even if he was 5'0
Ashe said on 2/Jan/12
He usually looks shorter because he's prone to wearing baggy clothing at regular events where the paparazzi take shots of him.

Very tall though, no doubting that.
John (Tottenham) said on 31/Dec/11
Thomas, that picture is misleading. If you look closely, Corolla is about 1 foot closer to the camera than Mayer, and it appears that Mayer is slouching. And if I had to guess, Corolla has bigger footwear on as well.

I am a true 185 cm barefoot and I am telling you that Mayer is not one cm under 6'3'', and he is in my opinion as tall as 193 cm, or 6'4'' ish for you Americans.

I see the guy regularly, close. He is just a large bloke and there is no point of debating this.
ano said on 6/Dec/11
His tall; but still insecure about his height wearing those giant shoes of his! Grow up!
SIlent d said on 1/Dec/11
He always looked tall. I remember when he was with jennifer anisten and she was up to his shoulder or a little taller. She had heels. 6 foot 3 easy.
John (Tottenham) said on 19/Nov/11
he goes to equinox in soho, and so do i. he is for certain 6'3'', and if anything close to 6'4''. really big bloke. i thought he was around 6'5'' actually, and i google searched his height and came across this website... but 6'3'' seems like it could be accurate, but not a cm less honestly mate. i am 185 cm, and he basically towered me.
Thomas said on 12/Nov/11
Adam Carolla is listed as 6'2". It's about time Mayer gets a downgrade from his "amazingly tall" stature. Notice the footwear AND how he favors the extra half-inch platform used to hold the backdrop up. Click Here
Mike said on 2/Nov/11
Yeah, he's a legit 6'3". Walked past him in New York and he's a big dude. Very rangy and long-limbed too. Looks a little different in person somehow, though. His features seem smaller and his voice is kind of loud and nasally.

Personally, I always pictured him as a tall man. I'm five-eight and in 8th grade so honestly, I'm kind of a tall one too. Keep it up John Mayer, you've got every kids dream, and you're good at it. Good luck.

He's 6'3". The reason why he looks 5'10" or 5'11" alone is because he always hunches.

Thing is...Conan had on dress shoes while John Mayer had on sneakers and Conan always has good posture compared to Mayer who slouches quite a bit, especially when he has his guitar...I would say 6'3 is pretty good for him...
annoymous said on 5/Jun/09
Saw him on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien literally moments ago. Conan is listed at 6'4" and he had an easy inch on John. I'd definitely without-a-doubt say he is 6'3"!
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/09
Just saw Mayer on Conan. Conan is 6'4. In comparison trust me John is 6'2.
Ginger said on 20/May/09
6'3" seems accurate or perhaps a touch understated. I'm 5'6" and when I met him (albeit 7 years ago) he reminded me of one of the Redwood trees in California. His stature was such that I have never forgotten my first impression. A 9" or even 10" height gap is completely appropriate.
The Dutchguy said on 15/May/09
Wait! ive changed my opinion about Mayer..he is shorter then he looks, compared to photos with other celebs, so i say he is 6'2 at most, since he is like 1.5 inches taller then Stevie Wonder and the guy from Scrubs
The Dutchguy said on 14/May/09
in the video of Bigger then my Body he sticks out the crowd like a sore thumb, in height, i mean, so im pretty sure he is 6'3
Doug said on 9/Apr/09
If Glenn has met him and claims he is minimum 6'3" then I believe him though. He doesn't look it compared to that 6'4" Travis guy though.
Doug said on 9/Apr/09
Na 6'3" is too high for Mayer, barefoot anyway. Check out the height difference betwene him and 6'4" Travis Mc Coy. Mayer is a strong 6'2" a likely 189cm 6'2.5" in my book.
Doug said on 9/Apr/09
Funny as I was going to say John Mayer looks a similar height as Ashton Kutcher likely between 6'2" and 6'3". I thought Mayer looked around 189cm, surprised he is the full 6'3" barefoot as that makes him 6'4"+ in shoes.
Debbie said on 3/Apr/09
Rob the pics that James and OutBenchThis posted clearly show that he is shorter than 6'3 don't you think he should be downgraded to 6'1 or something around that?
Hello said on 1/Apr/09
Man these celebs are all liars and inconsistent with their shoe lifts. The picture of him with James Blake and the one with Tiger Woods says it all. With tennis players I know for certain that they don't lie about their height, it would be stupid to since they're always standing next to each other wearing the same sneakers and getting photographed. Blake is definitely 6'1" and he looks slightly taller than Mayer. Tiger Woods is about 6' (since Federer is probably a weak 6'2" who lists himself as 6'1" and looked about 2 inches taller) and he looks the same height as Mayer.

I'd love to be fair & give John 6'2" but it's just not right so I'll try my best & give him 6'1.5"-6'1.75". We should all tell John Mayer that he shoulnt worry cos even though he might not be 6'3.5" he is still tall anyway cos at 6'1.5" he is 93% taller than other men(& that's ALOT considering avg. Height is 5'9") Don't Worry JOHN You Are Still TALL!
Mark D. said on 21/Feb/09
Based on the 6'4.5" Travis dude picture, and how he was 1/2 in. taller than the
6'1"-ish Tiger woods, I'd say 6'2" tops. He also looked 2" shorter than the 6'4"
Brian McNight and about 4" shorter than the 6'6" Pino Palladino (a bass player).
glenn said on 18/Feb/09
will smith can look 6-1 in pics,and he is dont mean anything.real repeated encounters deceive.even meeting a person once can be tricky.
J.J. said on 18/Feb/09
Unless I meet him. Make sure he gets measured with me critically studying it to the last inch. Before I will believe this 6'3" claims. He probably wears lifts & sometimes forget to wear them that's why Ashton Kutcher was about 1.5" taller than him. And yea he is also the same as this 6'1" American tennis player. Anyway I never knew if you are 6'3" you could sometimes look 6'1" & sometimes 6'1.5". And the most ridiculous one is that I can't see why a 6'3" person can look 3.5" shorter than 6'4" Travis McCoy
glenn said on 17/Feb/09
wishful thinking is those that laugh off a claim and never meeting a celeb.he lives in my city and told me he was 6-3.5.i see him all the time.
J.J. said on 17/Feb/09
wishful thinking 6'3" yea right! LOL he is a very funny person i dont know whether it's TERRIBLE BAD POSTURE or he is 6'1". I have seen somany pictures of him & have come to a decision that he looks anything from 6'0.5" - 6'1.5". I mean come on I know pictures are deceiving but after seeing so many of his pictures he hardly ever looked 6'2"
Mac said on 12/Feb/09
John and I stood together for a convo, Im 6'0''and he's 6'3'' lol so get over it doesnt matter how tall he is. He's an amazin guitar player.
Big Kid said on 9/Feb/09
He is 6' 1.5". Period. I know this because I met him and we talked about our heights. He said he was 6 3 but I challenged it.We stood back to back. I'm 6'7" and I had a clear 6 inches over him. Please change this Rob.

Roobz said on 8/Feb/09
On the cover of Where The Light is, he definitely doesn't look 6'3 more 5'10, 5'11.. but if you guys say he's 6'3 he must be..

John Mayer standing next to 6'4" Travis Mc Coy. Click Here
Looks to be about 2 inches shorter than Travis. Still think he is 189cm (6'2.5") From all the photos/videos I have seen of him he's never looked his claimed 6'3.5". If he was the 6'3.5" height that he has claimed, he wouldn't look over an inch shorter next to Conan (6'3.5"-6'4" )
Sarina said on 10/Dec/08
John Mayer is about 6'3". Look at him next to Conan O'brien whos like 6'5"! John is a little shorter than Conan the Giant.

nick said on 10/Nov/08
rob i doubt this guy is 6'4 in the morning. And i know you liketo put 191 as 6'3 however 190 and 191 are exactly the same distance apart from 6'3. So saying he is 191 would mean to yu that he is 191 mid day sohe wouldbe 6'4 in the morning,and i highly doubt that, what do you think rob especially scince he seems as tall as tiger woods and ashton kutcher you really think he is a legitamate 6'3 guy because he said so?
j said on 31/Oct/08
i'm stunned that john is 6.3. on the cover of heavier things, he looks even a little squat. i think its his pants. i would have never guessed him to be that tall.
Aaron said on 25/Oct/08

Nice photo of John with Tiger. It's pretty weird that Tiger (who I think is 6ft or 6ft1) according to this site looks the same height as John in that picture. There was a period were John was wearing converses on tour which don't give much height at all (probably half an inch, maybe a little more) compared to the dress shoes that Tiger was probably wearing which we know can give an inch to an inch and a half. Given John's posture and his "Clooney" head tilt in the photo, and Tiger's perfect posture (which I've noticed he does a lot), I'd say one could argue that John is more in the 6ft2 to 6ft2.5 range, rather than the full 6ft3. However, photos can be misleading so I don't think there's any need to for Rob to downgrade here. Still, good photo though!

Anonymous you are nuts if you honestly believe you were taller than him. He is a very legit 6'3

Rob, people talk BS all the time on this site, it's the internet so don't be surprised by "Anonymous"s claims..I still think Mayer is a legit 6'2.5" guy and not the 6'3-6'3.5" he claims. There's plenty of photo evidence to support it.

If Glenn says he is 6ft 3 then he probably is why on earth would he lie! Photos give and indication that is all. Its understandable that Glenn would get cross if you question not his ability to assess height but rather his integrity. I still think this the only place that accurately guages celebrity height. well done Rob and Glenn for his contributions.
hmmm said on 8/May/08
I'm disappointed Rob. 'Nobody' and myself were only expressing our opinions - is that not what the 'add comment' part of this site is about? We didn't use chidlish, name calling language either unlike Glenn. But, I guess if Glenn disagrees, then it's OK to get rid of I am sure you will with this comment if you stay with your bias perspective.

The Mayer and Conan pic is from October this year. I'd say Mayer looks to be an inch shorter than Conan but I don't know just how tall Conan is now. If Conan isn't a full 6'4", I'd say Mayer isn't a full 6'3".

I've seen Mayer 3 times at the store I work at in lower Manhattan, and the guy wears thin shoes, and has a very low key slouching posture (slouches quite a bit) and still comes across like a big guy. I would say 6'3" is about right, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was 6.3.5". You guys have to factor in his thin shoes and posture and he still looks quite big. Nice guy.
Aaron said on 26/Oct/07
looks like viper has a soft spot for mr. mayer here. he doesn't care to downgrade other people's height but makes excuses for mayer. just playing viper. I actually agree with you. When I say him in concert he was wearing a pair of converses which really only give about half an inch, which is tiny compared to other shoes out there. He still looked huge anyway. I don't know if he's really a full 6'3". Does anyone remember how tall he looked next to chappell when he was on that episode. that could be useful in pin-pointing this guy's height.
qwerty said on 6/Oct/07
Looks 6'2" to me. Without the slouch, maybe 6'2.5".

Mayer seems to be all over the place height wise. Though he does seem to wear some flimsy shoes a lot of the time. Kutcher could have a big footwear advantange in that picture.

Glenn, next time you bump into him with a camera handy in Manhattan, get him to stand up straight so we can not only go on your word but have photo proof that he's 192cm (6'3.5") :P
..I'm sticking with 189cm (6'2.5")for this guy based on several photos and video.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
you guys a funny.those are pics,and pics can be decieving.and i interperet the ashton pic differently.when you actually bump into mayer on the streets of manhattan as i do,and ask him his height,he is the 6-3.5 he claims.

Glenn, out of sheer cuiroisty, is Mayer's head as big in reality as it looks photo. In some photos is looks gargantuan.

Absolutely inaccurate. I've seen him working out in an NYC gym multiple times. In barefeet in the lockerroom, he MIGHT be 6'1. He is celebrity-stretching his height big time.

There's a photo with Mayer and Gylenhaal and lance Armstrong..mayer looks closer to a 6'2.5" than a 'big 6'3" ' as some on here continue to suggest.
Aaron said on 13/May/07
Jay jay, out of curiousity, how tall are you? I think it's important because if you're on the shorter side, it would be difficult for you to distinguish between 6'2, 6'3, 6'4. All of which are possibilities for John Mayer.
jay jay said on 7/Mar/07
i am getting repetitive, sorry. but i saw mayer again and this third time verified it for me at least that he is at the very least 6 foot 3. it was like 60 degrees here in manhattan, and he was just wearing chucks and a tee. no big boots. he's a tall kind of stocky dude.
Viper said on 21/Feb/07
Hes not 6-4, that is for sure. I could see how his frame could pull it off though.
jay jay said on 21/Feb/07
yesterday, through a friend, i found out that i live in the same neighborhood as mayer. anyways, the other day i saw him in a pharmacy line and this evening i saw him on 6th ave near houston. he was wearing a pair of converse and is over 6 foot 3.
Snapper G said on 20/Feb/07
Definitely not looking close to 6-3 in those pics. I thought he looked very close to Letterman in heighth, putting more like 6-1.5 which is what he appears in those pics. He looks to be about Jack Whites height which is about 6-1 and change, maybe touching 6-2.
Jake W. said on 12/Feb/07
I do not believe he is 6'4". 6'3" may be pretty accurate though.
jay jay said on 12/Feb/07
i saw him in a pharmacy in soho last week. he is over 6 foot 3. i will say though, he has big hair, so that could make him look larger. but he looks like a legit 6 foot 4, and kind of big.

He can't possibly be as tall as all of the jealousy surrounding his height... but I saw his show in Montreal a few years ago and he did make all of the french people look kind of tiny. But french people are tiny.

This guy looks more like 6'1" and change. He was on Letterman two weeks ago and Dave (6'2") went over after the song and he was clearly slightly taller than Jon. Anybody got a shot of him and Jack white in a police lineup.
Anthony said on 23/Nov/06
Exactly. If he straightens up, he looks he'd be 6'3 or more.
Glenn said on 23/Nov/06
He is hunching in my pics.
Anthony said on 23/Nov/06
I'll admit that in Glenn's pictures he looks 6'2-ish at best. But if you look at most other pics, he's definitely at least 6'3. I noticed his posture isn't exactly great (a factor in why he looks shorter next to Glenn), but when you see him next to small to average sized people he's 6'3 with ease.
Viper652 said on 20/Nov/06
Yeah, he doesnt look anywhere close to 6-3 in the pictures.

Mayer was on Sunrise this morning and he was similar in height to Kochie so 6’3” sounds about right.
Jordan said on 2/Nov/06
John looks 6'2-6'3.5 to me, but since he is slouching he could be taller. I would think 6'2 1/2 in the first pic since he is slouching so much.
J. said on 2/Nov/06
All the press for Mayer during his first album emphasized his height, which was usually described as 6'3", sometimes 6'4". In fact, he actually filled out a fact sheet for some teenybopper magazine during that time and he listed his height as 6'3" so he is consistent with that figure. He has that stringy, lanky build.
Glenn said on 1/Nov/06
Hes slouching in the pics.

Oh f8*** that, I am around his height and it is annoying how many people come up to you and say dumb crap. Seriously I am tempted to say things like that but instead I just either ignore them or make sarcastic quips. If you had people constantly comment on your height you would get it. So walk in his shoes for a minute and maybe you might understand before you judge.
