It would be nice if the Challenge Channel showed a re-run of 'The Chrystal Maze'!

Richard must have a good voice to have starred in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'.

5ft8 - and a much-overdue comment!

I've always been under the impression that Richard is
fairly tall! This is quite a revelation! I thought he was at least 5ft10.5 and he's 2.5" less! I should hang my head in shame!
He is very skinny though and does appear taller! But 2.5" is embarrassingly out!!! 😔😝

Yes, I'd say that's right on the money-- even the lean 130 weight, though I would have said 140. He stands about an inch taller than me, as face to face, we seemed even. Absolutely adorable and looking forward to 'comparing heights' with him in the near future!

Speaking of La Joan, while her "official" height on publicity bios is listed as 5ft 5.5in, I think in reality it may be a bit less - 5ft 3in or so. I had the opportunity to stand next to her at a "meet-and-greet" event prior to a concert in NY about 12 years ago. (Sorry, Joan! :) )

Apparently, Joan Jett is 5 ft 5.5 in tall. Considering the fact that he almost ALWAYS wears some variety of cowboy boots, I'd say it's a good bet that he is, in fact, around 5'8" tall.
