How tall is Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger's Height

5ft 10 (177.8 cm)

British Singer from the Rolling Stones and occasional actor. In the past, a bit like Rod Stewart the UK tabloids would put down Mick and call him a shrimp, regularly listing him as being 5ft 8. He once dated a very tall lady, L'Wren Scott who was around 6ft 3.

Rob can you add L'Wren Scott? She was a giant.
Allie said on 10/Jan/18
Hi Rob! Thanks for your opinion! Upon further inspection I think 179-180 cm might be too low. Maybe 183/6'0 is a better guess?

In similar boots/heels with Ana Beatriz, Ana H and Camilla Belle:

Editor Rob: there are some photos in which she can look close to 6ft..

His mistress Luicana also looked much taller tham Camilla Belle and Drew Barrymore when all three were wearing heels (no platform i think).
Allie said on 8/Jan/18
Rob, how tall is Luciana Gimenez? A Brazilian model whose affair with Mick ended his marriage.

She's in her late 40s now and I've seen sites describe her as 179-181 cm but she looks slightly taller than Ana Beatriz Barros and can hold her own against Ana Hickmann.

One thing is for sure though, From L'Wren Scott to Jerry and Sophie Dahl He sure has a thing for tall women!
Editor Rob: 179-80 may well be possible for her.

5'10" for MR. Jagger sounds accurate in his prime. Except for Mick Taylor, he was the tallest Stone.
KH said on 21/Sep/17
Mick Jagger was 5'10 in his prime. This is a serious height site it's never off by serveral inches. So to say Mick Jagger could be 5'5-5'7 range is ridiculous. Its like the Tom Cruise nonsense with some people except Mick is taller. I would imagine Mick is about 5'9.5 these days.
Editor Rob: 5ft 7 is ridiculous, but it did appear in the Men's Health article and quoted by other papers.

How is it that Mick Jagger remains 5'10" at 75 years old while 75 year old Paul McCartney has shrunk from 5'10.25" to 5'9.5"?

He always had rather low, narrow shoulders. Peak height 5' 9.5''.

I know it's hard to tell because of his big heels but I'd assume some height loss with age. I'd doubt over 5'9" seeing him with 5'11" Tom Waits.

Passed Mick Jagger in the street early 70s and no way was he any taller than about 5'8''.

Mick jagger is more like 5'5/ In boots he can look 5'7.
Mick jaggar said on 22/Feb/17
All short men in the band. But the best band in the world! Mick is around 5'7" look at his proportions and his head is pretty large. No possibility he is 5'10, he doesn't look over 5'7" even in boots.

If you look at the scene in rock and roll circus where keith lennon Clapton and others are on a small stage together keith is barefoot and is taller than especially lennon and lennon is presumed to be 5' 10" that would make keith about 6' tall. Tells me these height estimates are all overinflated.

his wife's height is fake, she's billed as 6'11 on google but she's slightly taller than him on high heels but i would say his max height is about 5'10 definetely.
HonestSlovene said on 17/Jan/17
Jagger was 178 cm peak (5'10.25"), now about 175.5 cm or (5'9.25"). 178 cm back then was considered like 181-182 cm today or above average/upper average (175 cm was average) today average is about 3 cm more or 178 cm. But yeah Chris 6'0" was a go to height back then for legit 5'10" -ers (Lennon, Morrison, Jagger etc.)and is still is today.
Chris said on 27/Dec/16
And Jagger has definitely lost some height. If you see pictures of him in the 1970s he's taller than Jerry Hall (6 foot tall).

Jagger was definitely considered a "6 footer" in the 1960s and 1970s. He was always seen as a tall man back then.

Just look at a picture of him in the 1970s with Jerry Hall and tell me he's under 6 foot...He looks 6 foot or 6'1 back then
Chris said on 27/Dec/16
I met Mick Jagger on holiday in Barbados. He's easily 5'10. Very solid. I was surprised how tall he was flat footed (we were on a beach)

If you look at pictures of him with his supermodel girlfriends he's obviously a tall-ish man. I think it's stupid to think he's under 5'10 even now in his 70s. He's not
RealDeal said on 25/Dec/16
Good posture, access to the best quality foods and healthcare/fitness routines. 5ft10, not lost any height.
He is 10 ft tall in what he has achieved
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Oct/16
I thought Mick was 5ft9 at his peak, from what I had read in newspapers and magazines! How come his daughter Georgia May is only 5ft6, when she has such a tall mother? It must be from Mick's side! Sorry Mick!
rodmeister said on 11/Aug/16
I literally ran into Mick Jagger head-on in front of the British Airways Lounge at Los Angeles Airport as we both came around a corner. Having read he was 5' 7" I was surprised how tall he was to my 5' 6.5". As we looked at each other in surprise, his eyes were at least two inches higher than mine - he appeared about 5' 9", but I have no idea if he was wearing boots or lifts.
truth said on 30/Jun/16
Next to 177 cm peak Bowie in the "Dancing in the Street" video he looked 179 cm so possibly he was 179 cm peak Rob?
Editor Rob: I don't know, but I'm sure Jagger had 5ft 10 on his passport, there was copies of all the Stones passports, him and keith had 5ft 10 in their own writing.

Worked with a guy who was in the USAF in the late sixties who had a military cargo flight layover on the Island of Fiji and the crew was housed at an expensive hotel. Just so happened The Rolling Stones were there, either on holiday or tour, and were sitting out by the hotel pool. This person had no interest in music or the Stones, so it's very probable he is truthful in his report which said: "I heard of the Rolling Stones...I thought they'd be big, husky dudes...****!...they were all a bunch of little dried-up ****ers! taller than this! (holds hand to his neck indicating about 5 feet 6 inches). "We were drinking and splashing in the pool while they were sitting around playing some guitars, and their girlfriends were smiling at us wanting to join in...but they had some big, mean looking bodyguards who were not happy with us being there." Based on this I'm guessing Mick wears lift shoes to get 5' 8" height. On stage the lights and moving around masks his height.

"My wife, 5'10" refused to serve Mr Jagger because he was so short."

David, I understand some women don't like shorter men but how could a hooker afford to be so picky?
Gus Mu. said on 12/Feb/16
I had seats right next to the small stage out front on the '97 tour; after the rest of the band walked across the bridge back to the main stage, he was still there waiting for Sympathy for the Devil to start and I got to see him from about 10 ft away. He has a very slight build (was dwarfed by bodyguards) and is definitely above 5-9 but probably nowhere north of 5-10 but can look it b/c of thick shoes & good posture. Said in a magazine interview in the early 80's he was just 125 lb.
PetePro said on 12/Jan/16
Re. Mick Jagger: Without being offensive, I hope, Mick has a large head and short legs. Hence looks, I believe, much shorter than he is.
Sam said on 3/Dec/15
My impression is that Jagger peaked around 5'9.5" but never was he a real solid 5'10", he just looked too close to Richards too often. He rarely goes anywhere now without his lifted sneakers is my impression, so he looks taller relative to Richards now IMO than he did 40-50 years ago!

My wife, 5' 10" refused to serve Mr Jagger because he was so short. His credit card proved he really was Mick. My ex girlfriend went to school with him, and said he was 5'6". Brad has never met him...

rob is he also known for tiptoeing? he was clearly taller than cate blanchett and she was wearing heels. he was most likely wearing lifts but the difference shouldn't have been that noticeable but then again g claimed blanchett was 5'5!
Editor Rob: with great posture and other band mates loose posture, at times he could look taller than 5ft 10. I'm not aware of any tip-toeing exploits.

My coworker met him at a resort back in the 90s and she was shocked by his appearance. My coworker is very petite (5'4" tops) and she said Mick Jagger was no taller than she was. She described him as "tiny and shrunken" and she had no reason to lie about this stuff, as she's not really into classic rock. She just seemed really matter-of-fact about it, so I believe her.

Reminds me of meeting Ray Davies back in 2009. I'm 5'3" and I hugged him and that man is no more than 5'8", if I'm being generous. Very tiny, very small, though he's listed as 5'11" on this site (yeah right!!).


Thanks for the laugh.

Hard to peg because of his odd build but has always seemed north of 5-9 but no more than a weak 5-10

I stood right next to Jagger backstage at the Stones concert last night. He wasn't dressed yet to perform and was wearing flats. He is 5'6" at the most but more likely closer to 5'4"or 5'5". I'm not quite 5'5" and we were eye-to-eye. No question about it, he's not 5'7" much less 5'9" or taller like some here have said. He's simply not.
Tr27 said on 27/Jun/15
Assuming that he is wearing 5 to 7cm lifts, Jagger is at least 1.72m nowadays. The guy was most likely 1.75m at his peak.
Ferrous said on 18/Jun/15
He looked to have an inch and maybe change on Springsteen when they sang together in Hyde Park a couple of years ago. I'd vote for about 5-9 and 7/8. Saw the Stones last week and he is incredible. He probably has genes similar to an elite athlete to be that mobile at 71. Truly moves like someone half his age.

Rob, can you please add Georgia May Jagger to the site? She's listed as 5'7 by TESS Management, her mother agency but as 5'8 by IMG New York. She also states quite often that she's the same height as her friend Cara Delevingne. People in the fashion industry do think she's only about 5'6 though. I think she'd be an interesting page to discuss. Thank you!
Sam said on 8/Jul/14
Rob, is it possible that just over 5'9" is a better listing? Keith Richards is a listed 5'9" and Jagger rarely if ever looks a full inch taller, often they seme quite close in height.
[Editor Rob: he could have lost some height by now]
Brad said on 8/Jul/14
He is 5 feet 10 like he was 50 years ago.
Orlando said on 6/Jul/14
From Christopher Andersen's "Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger" (page 51): «Although Jagger seemed larger than life on the stage, up close he was anything but: five feet nine inches tall and 130 pounds, with a head that was disproportionately large for his slight frame.» -- 5'9" and probably with some sort of elevated shoes on. So I guess Jagger must have been between 1.72 m and 1.75 m maximum. Those 5'10" are pure fantasy.
Sandra said on 5/Apr/14
I met him in the late 1960's....he was definitely 5'10" but no more than that.
Sam said on 3/Apr/14
Mick seems to wear sneakers with lifts a lot recently. In whatever that super-group was with 5'10" Joss Stone, she'd be performing barefoot and he'd look a solid 2 inches taller thanks to his shoes. Also with the other Stones, he seems to have few inches more than he used. Kind of in keeping with Keith Richards' derisive comments in "Life" about Jagger being obsessed with his appearance.
Here he's wearing them next to L'Wren (RIP):

Orlando said on 19/Mar/14
You people should adopt metric system for good. These ft&in is totally unscientific and misleading. A 2.54 cm difference is quite significant heightwise. A fellow 1.70 m tall is short, but one with 1.72 m can be considered average.
Orlando said on 19/Mar/14
@Ceej Jagger at 6ft? Man, you must be tripping...
Orlando said on 18/Mar/14
Mcfan says on 8/Nov/13: «5'7 is absurd. I think he's 5'10 in sneakers.» -- If he definitely wears elevated sneakers/shoes granting him extra 5 to 7 cm, then the 5'7" is not that absurd. One can see in this photo that Jagger is a short-legged man and short-legged man are mostly on the bellow average range. Scott was not towering over him as you can see she had bent her legs to look shorter next to him.
Ian C. said on 1/Feb/14
This is an interesting thread because there is disagreement from various people who claim to have met him about Jagger's height. So I'm thinking, maybe some of these witnesses (the ones who are claiming that Jagger is short) met Ron Wood, and mistook him for Jagger. Richards, Wood and Jagger now share an eerie facial resemblance. Shame, that, because those gents are ugly. They all look like Mr. Hyde.
doc said on 15/Jan/14
I stood next to him backstage at mile high voodoo lounge tour. I'm 6 foot and he probably came up to my chin. Little old Englishman. Greatest experience in my stage security gig!

Keith Richards was never taller than Mick Jagger. Bill Wyman said that Mick was always the tallest in the Stones and he did not want to highlight it too much so he went back to flat shoes when the others were wearing Cuban heels. Wyman was with the Stones over 28 years so he ought to know.
Sam said on 20/Sep/13
If Jagger was as low as 5'9" at peak, then John Lennon was around 5'9.5". I know people have guessed that height for Lennon but if he was an inch under his listing a lot of other people need an inch shaved off as well: McCartney, David Bowie...anyway, my two cents are that Jagger was around 5'9.5" and Lennon right at the 5'10" mark.

My husband is 5'11 and he was standing next to Jagger, who was about 1 inch shorter. Jagger also wears lifts in his shoes so he must be around 5'9/5'8.5
Ceej said on 1/Jul/13
Mick's easily the tallest in the entire group. And Ron Wood is 5'8 and Keith is 5'9.

Come on. He's easily 5'10 even approaching 70 years of age. He was probably 6 foot in his 20s
Robby D said on 6/May/13
Rob. I am reading the book, "MICK" The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger by Christopher Anderson and in chapter 3 at the bottom of page 51, it describes Jagger in 1963 as being, five feet nine inches tall and 130 pounds. He was about nineteen at that time
jimbo said on 29/Apr/13
Thought all the Stones were petite. When you see the images of the famous court cases, Mick and Keef are well dwarfed by those around them. Still, giants in their own way.
Mickavellian said on 28/Apr/13
I am 5'7" and my dad is 5'10" on the spot. On the shoot for "Waiting for a friend" he wore Capezzios" (totally flat shoes) he was taller than me about my dad's height and I was around him for a good hour. Jagger's height was not an issue, his laughter is something that you cannot believe. He has that "he, he ,back of throat gurgle, rasp rasp" that you attribute to nerds and geeks. Besides that shock, he seemed quite mellow, non-superstar, skinny as hell. Now he's wearing sneakers with a 2" lift (for what I see online) But boy that laughter. BTW in the UK small refers to frame not to height.
peacetruth1 said on 5/Mar/13

It seems that he hasn't lost height. Maybe 1 cm at most. He's in incredible shape for his age. 5'9.5 or 5'10 seems about right. Keith is 5'8.5 max. Ron and Charlie are both 5'6-5'7, I guess. But really, it's hard to tell sometimes.
Loren said on 4/Feb/11
Just to clear something up after reading these post of him being short and 5'8 or under. Just met Mick and stood face to face with him for about 10 min and made sure I assess his height :) I'm 5'9 and some change in shoes and he was about an inch or more taller then me and was wearing normal (no lift) tennis shoes that might give a little more height. He's very skinny and lanky. He's no shorter than 5'10 or at the very very least 5'9 1/2 barefoot these days - If he did shrink he would have been 5'11 in his heyday. 5'8 or lower is def not true. I'm sure if you saw him on stage he'd look shorter but walking right behind him judging his height is a different story. Trust me guys he's min 5'9 1/2 but more 5'10.

There's no way Ron is 5.1. 5.1 is like dudley moore height.

I met Ron Woods at a gallery showing of his art work; there was great expectancy of his arrival and all of a sudden everyone started congregating in one spot. Curious to see what was there as no one was visible and I'm only 5'1, I pushed my way through and was TRULY ASTONISHED to see Ron Woods, our eyes on the same level; his might have been slightly lower, I was so shocked at his size, I couldn't believe that this was THE Ron Woods of the Stones, and he was as big around as a pencil. Every time I see the Stones in a performance I notice how they ALL seem to be around the same height; they're all way shorter than people believe.

I really do think Mick has a retractable spine. I've seen Mick and the boys in concert twice and have one of them on tape, Mick looks he could be anywhere from 5'10 to 6'. 5'7-5'8 could be with astoudingly bad posture. Remember this guy beat out DiCaprio and was a head taller than Marty Scorsese at the premiere of "The Departed" a year ago.
miles smiles said on 9/Oct/07
Glenn, the Jagger mystery continues. An ex-girlfriend of mine used to be dragged to Stones concerts by her obsessed dad, and she got backstage a few times. She's 5-7. We're still in touch, and the other day I asked her how tall Jagger was, and she says she was exactly the same height as him (and she never wears heels. I also just came across a blog where several people quote sightings of 5-5(!) and 5-7 for Jagger. Obviously 5-5 is way off, but it does make me question his official height. Remember he only weighs a buck forty by his own admisssion, which is so skinny it gives the appearance of being lanky and lean.
Anthony said on 3/Oct/07
Plant was at least 6'1 when he was younger. Elvis was 6', and Mick Fleetwood was 6'7 in his youth. Only ones I can think of right now. Yeah, they're mostly in that range.

He most definitely has a retractable spine...or else he knows some freaky height-enhancing voodoo (from his Voodoo Louge..heh heh.) Hey glenn, isn't it kinda weird that so many old skool rock stars are in the 5-9 to 5-11 range? From Jagger to Richards to Lennon to McCartney to Hendrix to Clapton to Bowie to Page to Arthur Lee...the list continues. I know it's about the average height range, but they rarely stray much outside that range. I suppose the Small Faces and Prince are on the extreme short end, but you rarely see a major rock star over 6-1 or so. Can't think of any at the moment.

miles smiles said on 17/Sep/07
So glenn, my record exec friend from l.a. has seen Jagger twice in the last couple of years (Mick's been seeing this Amazon hottie from the area), and he says once he appeared 5-9ish, and the other time 6 feet. Do you think Sir Mick would even bother wearing lifts? I mean, I know huge egos never really die, but would the guy who co-wrote Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers, and Exile On Main Street and shagged every hottie on the planet even care about a few extra inches?
glenn said on 25/Aug/07
they are fascinating.i wish i could morph in height like that.
miles smiles said on 25/Aug/07
I was going by this website's official listing for Kravitz. But yeah, Glenn, the two times I've seen Kravitz he did appear at least 5-9 (taking into account footwear.) There's a Jagger documentary from a few yaers back where he and Kravitz look about the same height. Jagger's an enimgma....up there almost with Depp and DMX.
glenn said on 25/Aug/07
lenny kravitz is a minimum of 5-9.and in public usually looks 5-10,5-11.
miles smiles said on 24/Aug/07
I'm glad you guys agree about Jagger the vertical Zelig. It's gotta be that weird spine-stretching voodoo thing that DMX does too. I've seen a photo of Mick towering over 5-8 lenny Kravitz....and other times he looks about 5-8.
glenn said on 24/Aug/07
geez.serious anthony? he looked 5-8 next to my 6-1.5 friend.i always look at his shoes.usually black low cut sneakers.
Anthony said on 24/Aug/07
There's shots of Mick looking 6'1-6'2 with DiCaprio.
glenn said on 24/Aug/07
correct miles.the guy might be the king of heights cause ive seen him look from 5-8 to 6ft,except that he wears low cut normal shoes unlike the stallones,pitts and depps of the world.which makes him more of an enigma!
miles smiles said on 23/Aug/07
Jagger is almost like the DMX of the classic rock world. There are pictures where he looks 6-0 standing next to other celebs, and sometimes he appears 5-9, as Glenn points out. Obviously he's quite the peacock, so lifts seem a definite possibility. But would he even bother? I mean, he's friggin' Mick Jagger...and he's 64.
glenn said on 11/Aug/07
jagger looks taller over the years.i always thought he was 5-8 due to his posture.a girl once told me she read 5-9.5 for jagger.a 1994 tour book has him at 5-10.and ronnie at 5-10.5.and mick can look taller than wood.hence the 6ft illusion.but wood can look 5-9 as well.
CarbonM5 said on 10/Aug/07
We have worked for Mick Jagger in the past. He looked 5-11 close-up.
glenn said on 9/Aug/07
he does look 6ft on stage in black skippies or room for too much lifts.he can look 5-11 in street.usually 5-9.5 to 5-10 appearence.very tricky guy to figure out.looked 5-8 next to my 6-1.5 friend in a photo,1994.
tubbs said on 9/Aug/07
Saw Mick leaving his hotel in Helsinki last week, looked about 5'11...honestly, also saw Charlie at the same time, he looked around 5'8". What really surprised me was that Mick looked 6' during the concert later that evening. Have you ever seen Jagger at 6' Glenn?
glenn said on 8/Aug/07
she is 6-3 or 6-4.
jacky said on 7/Aug/07
how tall l'wren scott. she obviously towers over him by miles.
maryport said on 28/Jun/07
My husband and I came almost side by side with Mick Jagger at an Oporto museum in August 2006 and I can garantee that he is a little shorter than my husband that is 1 m 75 cm tall. He is extraordinary skinny, only bones, muscles and skin! This year, at Lisbon concert, I used with magnifiyng lenses and I am sure he used special shoes on stage. It looked like he had springs under his feet and they look to have an extra height not only high heels. I would like to have a pair like that for my fitness sessions. And one more thing all my aquagym teachers are rather short, but when I look up from the pool down, they look rather tall, is the same with musicians on stage
Reminidi said on 26/Jun/07
Jagger has been whereing very ugly ortho looking workout shoes for many years now - who only knows what is inside (don't think I'd want to take a close look either, lol) Looked 5-9ish and frail when I saw him up close 10 yers ago. Can look a bunch taller though, must be his skinny arese
A. Rodney Rodriguez said on 14/May/07
looks in that pic like Mick is closest to the camera (see hows his hand looks outsized), my hump is that his height is exaggarated by an inch or so maybe. saw him up pretty close once and he looked about 5-9 to maybe barely 5-10 but very thin which exaggarates his heighth somewhat me thinks. back to your regular programeing. he once stated he is only 125 pounds P.S. Mick wears really ugly orthopedic looking shoes onstage for the past 10+ years, check em out, they seem to have thick heels.
venice beach said on 12/Apr/07
it's possible that leo wears heels
glenn said on 6/Apr/07
and the last time i saw leo he was 6-1!!!
glenn said on 6/Apr/07
now you see what i mean about jude law brad? how can jude be 5-9,5-10 when he was 2 or 3 inches taller than mick? what happened was probably this-mick was 5-9 that night,which ive seen,and jude was 5-11 with better posture too.
Brad said on 6/Apr/07
Mick is 5' 10". Jagger destroying Dicaprio's height is amazing. Mick must be in cowboy boots, he looks well over 6'.
glenn said on 30/Mar/07
it is crazy cause i saw dicaprio at 6-1, 4 months ago.wood was 510.5 in youth.he is 5-9.5 now.jagger looks 5-9.5 to 5-11.5 whenever i see him.
Pik said on 29/Mar/07
I've posted this picture before, but somehow it was deleted. How can Wood and Damon both be 5'10 ? Look at this picture !

JMG said on 20/Mar/07
very odd picture here of Jagger...

Click Here

Mick Jagger(5'10"), Dicaprio (5'11"ish),and Ron Wood(5'9")
Dicaprio seems his normal height here but! he must be wearing unbelievable lifts in this photo to appear 6'1" to 6'2"
mcfan said on 16/Feb/07
I agree with Phibes about Jagger being taller than Lennon by a slight margin. He was also very slightly taller than McCartney. I have a vivid memory of this. I would think he was 5'10.5 when he was young...maybe close to 5'10 now.
Phibes said on 11/Feb/07
No way Jagger's height is 5'8-5'9, that's impossible. He never used to wear high-heeled boots (not even in the 60s), check him out in any of the concerts (e.g. on YouTube) - Hyde park 69, Rock'n'Roll Circus 68 or 81 tour (Let's Spend the Night Together film), Bridges of Babylon, Voodoo Lounge Tour.. always flat shoes/trainers - and he always looked taller than say Richards, Ron Wood (5'9). Watch him standing next to Lennon (5'11) in Rock'nRoll Circus both wore flat shoes and Jagger looked a bit taller. Or check him out wearing white trainers and yellow suit and standing next to Vaclav Havel (5'7) in Prague in 1990. Or next to Freddie Mercury (5'9-5'9 1/2) backstage during Live Aid (both wearing trainers) Jagger looks way taller than both of them. Or performing Miss You with Timberlake who's supposed to be around 6'. People who say he's cca 5'8 probably never saw Jagger. There's no way he's shorter than 5'10-5'11.
Viper said on 17/Jan/07
Mick has always looked around 5-10 to me.
Glenn said on 17/Jan/07
It is interesting.I thought Jagger was 5-8ish too,until years gone by,I noticed he had a the street he normally looks 5-9.5,5-10.rare occasion,mostly on stage,he can look 5-11.he towers the whole band.tour book has him at 5-10.Keith at 5-9,Charlie at 5-8,Woody at 5-10.5.Woody can give a 5-9 impression from a slouch.but is indeed around 5-10.
Rober.R said on 15/Jan/07
That is really interesting Elle. I wonder how many pop stars in the sixties were measured in cuban heels?
Elle said on 9/Dec/06
I spent an entire evening in the mid-eighties at a dinner party at Jagger's townhouse in the West Eighties (NYC). He talked to and flirted with me enough to absolutely gauge him at 5'8.5", he was wearing totally flat Capezio jazz shoes (and Nicholson was there and he was a bit taller at 5'9", and I'm 5'11"). Also Jerry Hall was creeping about in her bare feet and she was just an inch shorter than I, making her 5'10". I was there for over six hours so I had plenty of time to compare, and, of course, party!
Glenn said on 20/Oct/06
In a 90s tour book it had Woody at 5-10.5 and Mick at 5-10.I always thought Woody was 5-8,but after studying him closely,I realised he had a slouch.
Glenn said on 14/Oct/06
No,no.Jones was the shortest.5-5 or those old pics.he wore the biggest heels and still was shortest.
Anthony said on 13/Oct/06
Thanks for the info, Glenn. How tall would you say Jones was. I'd estimate about 5'7-ish.
Glenn said on 12/Oct/06
Charlie Boy is 5-8.Wyman is 5-6.Taylor is 5-11,6ft.Woody is 5-10.Mick appeared 5-11 on stage.and usually the street,he can look 5-9 to 5-11 in low cut shoes.
Anonymous said on 11/Oct/06
biography on mick jagger states his height at 5ft9
Anthony said on 27/Sep/06
Mick's leaning forward, and he's not afraid to wear height enhancing shoes.
Viper652 said on 27/Sep/06
Mick is looking taller than Dicaprio here too. Click Here
Matt said on 27/Sep/06
The footwear and ground level in this picture is suspect but it appears that Jagger is taller than 5'10'', especially if DiCaprio is 5'11'':
Click Here
Anthony said on 26/Sep/06
Glenn, do you know the heights of the other Rolling Stones? By my own estimates, I'd say Charlie was maybe 5'7 (or 5'8 at his peak), Bill 5'8-5'9, Woody about 5'9-5'10, and Mick Taylor about 5'10-5'11.
Tom T. said on 26/Sep/06
Yep, EJ definitely 5'6"
Glenn said on 23/Sep/06
No Paul.sorry.
Paul said on 22/Sep/06
Does anyone know how tall Mick's son James is? I'm just interested.
Glenn said on 10/Sep/06
I was wrong.he is 5-6.not 5-7,5-8 that I thought.and certainly not the 5-9,5-10 he can look at the top 10 or 20 hardest photos with to get.16 years of NYC he poses maybe once a year,if that.luckily the photo came out fine.
Anthony said on 9/Sep/06
That's grea, Glenn. I always assumed Elton was no more than 5'7.
Glenn said on 9/Sep/06
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
I believed the Jagger 5-8 myth for awhile.mainly cause he looked that in my friends photos.
Anthony said on 8/Sep/06
"I met jagger and he was no more than 5'9", he isnt a tall guy."

Not a tall guy, but not as small as many people have made him out to be. 5'9-5'10.

And I'm in interested in finding out who this shapeshifter is.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Right Anthony.JUST last night I caught a shapeshifter Ive been chasing 16 surprise, and I think he forgot to where his lifts! its not hard to figure out who and if it isnt up by tommorow,Ill reveal of the hardest to get ever.
ralph said on 8/Sep/06
I met jagger and he was no more than 5'9", he isnt a tall guy.
Glenn said on 25/Aug/06
Again.Jagger is 5-10.Richards is 5-9.Bowie was or is slightly under 5-10.more 5-9 if you ask me.
mcfan said on 24/Aug/06
This guy was definitely 5'10.5 if Bowie was 5'10. In "Dancing In The Streets" he was a half-inch taller than Bowie.
Daniel said on 24/Aug/06
Well, in the picture recently posted by Anthony we see that Jagger is a bit taller than Ronnie Wood, who, in turn, is not any shorter than Rod Stewart, who is at least 5'10.5''
Daniel said on 23/Aug/06
Yes, if you look at the photograph posted by Anthony you'll notice a difference of 5-6 inches in favor of the girl. But she must have been wearing high heels too, that probabbly added 2-3 inches to the difference. So, the real difference between both of them should be 3-4 inches, that is, Mick Jagger –in his middle 60s- is not shorter than 5-11, unless he's wearing high heels too.

Raz + Mary said on 17/Aug/06
So Eoin, are you just estimating these guys heights or do you actually know. Cos I know for a fact Mick Jagger is not 5"10.
Daniel said on 9/Aug/06
Besides, if you look at the picture posted by mcfan on 24/Apr/06 you'll see that Jagger is at least 3 inches taller than Springsteen, who is 5-10. So, I don't understand how everybody seems to have fun puttin' down Mick's height. Of course nowadays Jagger has shrunk a little, maybe even 2 inches, but in his early youth he must have been at least 6ft tall.
Daniel said on 8/Aug/06
Well, I have a book about the Stones, with a lot of fotographs of all the members of the band, and in all of them Jagger seems to be at least 6ft tall. There's even a picture of him walking hand in hand with former wife Jerry Hall (who is no less than 5-11) and is clear that he is taller than her (2 or 3 inches), since they both are barefoot and walking relaxed, neither straightin' up nor slouching.
Viper652 said on 3/Aug/06
Yeah, hes no shorter than 5-9,.
Glenn said on 3/Aug/06
Looks 5-10 when I see him,but I believe 5-9.
Brad said on 2/Aug/06
Met him at a gas station in Greenwich Ct. in '78, he's 5'9" in sneakers.
MHouillon said on 14/Jun/06
Mick Jagger is 177cm
Orlando said on 26/May/06
I guess he's a 5' 9" at the most. Haven't you noticed he always wears elevated shoes/sneakers? He seems small framed but with his good posture and mercurial leaness he looks taller than he really is. Besides, the man is always jumping and romping, no way of having a good estimate about his actual height...
mcfan said on 5/May/06
If McCartney is 5'11 in his prime then I guess Jagger should be put up to 5'11.25. Jagger, Tom Jones, and Eric Clapton were marginally taller than McCartney so something is wrong with Jagger's height at 5'10....or McCartney should be downgraded to 5'10 in his prime and 5'9.5 now.
Glenn said on 25/Apr/06
jagger still is 5-10.bowie shrunk to 5-9.
mcfan said on 15/Jan/06
I would place Jagger at 5'10.5 at his peek. He's probably 5'10 at the most now, but he was just a little more than 5'10. Slightly taller than Lennon, McCartney, and Richards.
cendrin rovini said on 30/Nov/05
Saw Jagger walking next to Bowie and he was smaller. An interviewer wrote in a book that he was smaller than expected, 170cm. I have no idea, was always looking more like 178cm to me..
mcfan said on 21/Aug/05
Mick Jagger is no way 5'6 or 5'7. He's a half-inch taller than David Bowie and was roughly the same height as Lennon and McCartney. He was 5'10 but I'm sure like all men 62 years old he could have shrunk an inch.
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
Some comments from a gossip newsgroup thread on Mick's height:

"I have seen him in person and he is a shrimp. Maybe 5'6 or 5'7 at most, and that is being charitable. He is very short. I'm 5'5 and he wasn't much taller."

"Julianna Margulies rcently stated that she was shocked how tiny he was after working with him on a film. She was somewhat patronizing about it"

"I'm 5'9" and when I *brushed shoulders* (errr.... walked by him at a large party) with him he seemed a good head shorter than I was, though the 5'5 - 5'6" estimate seems on target"

"I'm six feet even, I don't remember Mick's footwear but I was wearing Chuck Taylors which don't add any height. I don't remember Mick being really short but I did look down on him a little heightwise. I'd guess him to be maybe 5'9."
Eggplant said on 9/Jul/05
Saw him at Madame Tussaud's, too. Very slightly shorter than me at 5'10. Maybe 5'9-5'9 1/2.
