Richard Marx's Height
5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
American Singer. In a letter published on Salon he mentioned his height, saying "I'm also taller than my wife, but despite being 5' 10" I get pegged as much shorter all the time, perhaps due to a somewhat scrawny physique and alarmingly oversized head".

No, no. Again, wrong. I’m 5’ 10. 5’ 8 is the height of my annual royalty earnings stacked up. Common mistake.
Tony Bruno: Wow Dick, you're a angry elf. Must be botox induced brain damage.
Richard Marx: Dude, you look like Verne Troyer if he was someone’s prison-bitch. I’m 5’ 10, 160lbs. Not NBA material but I could at least reach your Lipitor for you, you tiny, vile prick.

Met him a few nights ago at his concert in SF. I had a backstage pass and was fortunate to get a photo with him. I’m 5’ 9, he was about an inch and a half taller so I would say somewhere between 5’ 10- 5 ‘11

I trust rob listed him. If he is really 5'10 then Rob would have change it long ago.

My gf and I met him a few months ago and he was taller than I thought. 5' 10 I'd say. I'm 5' 11 and he was just slightly shorter than me. But way thinner than me, too.

George Canyon towered over him @ the CCMA's tonight.

My brother is good friends with his youngest son (we live in the same town) and I asked him if Richard seemed short, and my brother claims he seems about average male height (keep in mind my brother has seen Richard in his own home, possibly barefoot). I wouldn't doubt 5'8" or maybe a little more. His eldest son is pretty tall, probably around 6'1" or 6'2".

5' 7" maybe 5' 6". Wears giant boots like Glenn.

im very big fan of Richard n i can say that richard is 173cm, i am ready to bet he's slightly taller than glenn while leaning do to pavement favoring Richard.
also keep in mind his head is slightly bigger (wider) compared to glenn for example + he's got shorter legs like Tom Cruise, this all coul make a real 5'8 looking 5'7, it's like when a guy wear a suite with wide shoulders it'll make him look at least 2 inches shorter because he now seem wider.
Richard is 173cm, maybe now he's 172cm but just maybe.

3" boots. He wears them.

He looks 5' 10" in this picture, if you imagine him standing as straight as Glenn is doing.

He doesnt look 5-7 in the picture.
Brad said on 26/Aug/06
5' 7" max. Just look at his sappy videos from years ago. He's pint sized.

In the past,the page cannot be displayed,would go through anyway.oh well. Marx looked 5-10 to me in big boots and hair in the early 90s,which gave me the impression of 5-7.I was surprised to see he was 5-8 in dress shoes.

What happened to a few or more comments I sent before your hiatus Rob?
[Editor Rob: sorry, probably didn't get through glenn if the page was 'cannot be displayed'...]

Guy's, he's not standing straight and he's not that young anymore either. It's possible he was close to 5'10" and nowadays closer to 5'9".
Earl said on 18/Aug/06
He is leaning forward but he looks as though he would be a couple of inches taller than Glenn if he stood upright. So is he over 5'8" or is Glenn shorter than he is listed?
MD said on 18/Aug/06
Strange, I always thought he was taller (i.e. at least 5'10"). Probably (like many) because of his thin build, and that I don't remember seeing him standing by anyone.

Richard looks to be about 1 inch taller than glenn because he is leaning.

yeah, he looked pint sized in those sappy videos
