πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ Happy Birthday Mike! πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰

It was Mike's Birthday yesterday and he turned 69. I hope he had a wonderful time.

You can see how Mike towers over the other Genesis members in the video of 'We Can't Dance'. But they CAN dance - very well, actually! πŸŽΌπŸŽΆπŸŽ΅πŸŽ§πŸ’Ώ

6ft3 peak;
6ft2 now.

@ Prog King - So there is indeed a page for Mike! I have even written on it! Thanks for taking the trouble to tell me.

6ft3 back then;
6ft2 now.

Rob, could he be dipping under 6ft2 now?

Maybe his posture has worsened. He could give a 6ft4-5 impression in the Genesis years. Much shorter band mates and he was like a twig

He might look under 6ft 2, but could he still measure it? Don't rule that out.

Has Mike Rutherford really been missing? Ha ha! That's just not right!
How I LOVED that video for their hit, 'We Can't Dance'! It is there that I noticed just how tall he is compared to Collins and Banks. That was a little after I drove my neighbours nuts with a solo album of his; I can't swear as to its title, but 'Spectral Mornings' rings a loud and musical chime in my overcrowded memory! What a record! I HAVE to check it out again, indeed I do! I recently invested in the brilliant album 'Seconds Out' and it's SO worth rebuying!
I think Mike has to have to been a good and healthy 6ft3 back in the 80's, possibly a shade over! Truly I do... πŸ˜‰
Today he is probably just under 6ft1, but that's still good going methinks!

Possibly a strong 6ft3 in his prime

Really looks 6ft4-5 in old Genesis photos.

Made Phil Collins look smaller than he already is. How about Tony Banks? A strong 5'11/6ft perhaps?
