He claims 6ft2 on a good day here at 0.45 seconds. Maybe 6ft1.75 is reasonable.
I'll add the quote at top thanks.

Over 10 years ago i checked his height on IMDB and it said he was 5 ft 10. I thought people shrink with age lol. No joke for years He was listed as 5 ft 10 and now hes 6 ft 2. But then again he did look the same height as Simon Le Bon maybe a bit taller but then i thought Simon was 5 ft 10 as well.

Jt is thinner which makes him taller but he's already taller than Simon. Jt is 188cm, Simon is 185cm.

really john , in 16 magazines in 1984, u said in a interview that you're 6 ft 0.5 in ( 184 cm ) , and simon probably 5 ft 11.5 in ( 182 cm ), which is true john ??

Simon Lebon is 6 ft 1.5 in. John is 6 ft 2 in. Very close in height.

He is 6'2. He is a little taller than Simon Le Bon. He's a very talented bassist and his talent is underrated.

Once again Rob has it bang on.

I beleive it's the other way around. John always looked slightly taller than Simon.

Phil is 6ft1

I don't think John is thin and wirey. He was on Never Mind the Buzzcocks a while ago. He seemed quite beefy. Also, he had a good inch on comedian phil Jupitus. Don't know how tall phil is though?

I dont think Lebon is quite a full 6-2. Id give him 6-1 1/2.

John Taylor is 6'1" and Simon Lebon is 6'2" ... John looks taller because he is thinner. Simon, has had back problem over the years and may have lost an inch, but in the 1980's Simon was taller. That's the truth folks.

Saw them 5 times in '82 in dinky clubs in/around NYC. I stood right next to him then & in '94, he's 6' 2" in shoes. The other Taylors & Nick were er, short.

John is about 6'.05" without shoes. He is about an half inch shorter than Simon who is right at 6'1". John's thin wirey build makes him look taller than he actually is.

Yay! I'm the first to comment on ***John Taylor***. I agree with this listing I've seen. Many males listed as 6'2 are adding a bit, but I think he's legitimate. Lead singer, Simon Lebon's listing of 6'1 1/2 seems accurate too. He's shorter, but barely.
I love that John's wife is a lot shorter. He didn't end up with some 5'8+ model. (Keyboardist Nick Rhodes gets all the credit for that one, and he's dwarfed by all his girlfriends!) I've seen a picture of him and his wife, and even with heels she was a great deal smaller. She may very well be exactly a foot smaller.
