5 foot 11 1/8?
Editor Rob
Back a few years ago he could be 5ft 11 to 11.25, but today might have lost another fraction.

So, where's the peak height for this guy? I'm thinking he was at least a solid 6'1 in his heyday.
Editor Rob
His peak was 6 foot as he claimed in the 70's Click Here. He was shorter than the actor John Levene on Doctor Who during that era, although today both of them are around the same range.
