Randy standing next to 5'9 or said to be 5'9 Steven Tyler and 5'5 Jennifer Lopez with at least 6-7 inch heels.
Would list Randy to be 5'9 and Steven to be 5'8, and Jennifer to be MAX 5'4-5'3!

Turk, Seacrest is standing closer to the frame and is probably wearing 1" lifts or so. I doubt Jackson is, doesn't seem the type who is too worried about that kind of thing. Given that, they do look about the same height.

My best estimates are as follows:
Randy: 172 - 174
Simon: 172 - 174
Ryan: 169 - 170

this is funny because on Simon Cowell's biography, Randy called Simon "kinda short"

I saw a picture with him and Jordin Sparks at the ameican idol finale and they were the same height and she's 5'10" and she probably wore hills so can't be 5'8"

I agree with some of the other posters. He looks 5'9" in that pic, but a person's footware can easily add or subtract an inch, so that's far from conclusive.

Looks more than this with Glenn. 5'9" or 5'9.5".

dude looks 5-6 tops. And Crowell looks like he's about to fall off a set of stilts its so oblivious he's wearin lifts (or actual stilts for that manner...)

" Big bucks I guess, he was an A list session guy."
He'd even done sessions for Journey prior to his joining full-time.

I was wondering why he and Neil Schon hung at NAMM convention. They did recruit him. Big bucks I guess, he was an A list session guy.

Considering Glenn's tendency to wear large shoes and stand completely erect for photos, I'd say Randy looks to be at least 5'9'' in this photo. Looking at the picture alone gives Randy more than one inch over Glenn.

I think he is 5'7" max

Its just so odd, how randy's height looks about 5'6 if paula is 5'0 its impossible that he can be anythign taller then 5'6 Unless Paula is wearing heels bigger then 4 inches.

It seems as though the people on American Idol change heights all the time:Click Here

Its odd, but Randy has on occasions looked shorter than Ryan who has on occasions looked 2" + shorter than Simon. I thought he was shorter based on some misleading pictures I saw, probably Ryan's shoes are to blame. He does look all of 5'9" in the pic, but I'm still not convinced he is not 5'8", give or take .5", depended on what his footware tends to be. What ever it is, it can't be worse than Simon's.

Posture might have something to do with it, but Randy looks 1"+ on Glenn. Perhaps more in the 5'9 range.
Glenn said on 13/Mar/06
Everyone forgets he was the bass player for journey in 1986 only.Raised on Radio album and tour.

What does "Nice guy BUT kinda short", have anything to do with eachother?!
Really think about what you typed,J.

I saw Randy in Atlanta a year ago. I actually got an autograph out of him. Nice guy but kinda short. This height is a good estimate.
