Might be overlistd, based on the estimates of posters below and the average guess.

I think like most celebrities has a monolithic whopper of a lie about his height on the web. So 5ft 10 it is.

πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚ Happy 60th Birthday Richie! πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ

Many Happy Returns to Richie as he turns 60 today. This multi-talented musician plays more than just the guitar.

Richie Sambora looks around 5ft11.25. Hasn't he done any solo stuff? Hmmm...
I have to look into that one!

Yeet said on 20/Jul/17
Bruh he ain't more than 5'9. I saw my 6'1 dad next to him and he had a good 4-5 inches on him.
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/17
He's rather attractive and positively tall for a rock star, as I have been finding out recently!

When I See Richie Perform with BonJovi it is Shocking to Me to see that He is Tall standing Next to BonJovi how tall is He when not wearing Boots cause some of His Clips He is Not wearing Boots
Jazz said on 10/Jul/15
Richie is 5 7 or 5 8 without boots. From someone in his attorney's office....Heather 5 1. They're both small.....
Brad said on 25/Jun/14
Catch him in cowboy boots and posture and he is well over 5' 11.5".
Tape Measure said on 27/Mar/14
This is accurate. 2.5 inches taller than Jon and slightly shorter than Dave Grohl. His relaxed posture makes him look only 5' 11" a lot though.

Richie's 6'1", size 13 shoes.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Dec/13
Click Here That's the real height difference between them. I have no explanation for how Jon pulls off looking almost the same height other than lifts and posture/camera distortion!!
Arch Stanton said on 10/Dec/13
Spot on now as a barefoot guess I think Rob, thanks. I think he can look around 6'1" in shoes but he tends to wear the Cuban type heels which probably give 1.5 inches. He can look shorter and barely look 5'11 at times, but a lot of the photos are distorted with posture and angle and I'm sure Jon's footwear is inflated a lot of the time. Jon can also looked close in the height to Dave Bryan too who is a similar height to Richie and roughly 6ft. Jon's 5'9" by his own admission though so something isn't right! Richie looked about 6 inches taller than Denise Richards barefoot, so I think 182 is more likely than 180 anyway..

That's the real height difference when you see them on stage in person, about 3 inchs. I think you're undercooking him with 180, but 5'11.5" is certainly possible.I agree he can often look this low but he was listed at 6'2" for a long time! I think he looks similar in height and features to Mads Mikkelsen who you have at 182.
Editor Rob
yeah maybe 182 range is a better shout for him
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/13
He's actually only 5 ft 8 Click Here :] Jon surely is wearing lifts these days...
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/13
Jon generally tends to look 1-2 inches taller than he did in the early 90s. He used to look about 3 inches shorter than Richie and Dave Bryan who are about 6ft but in the last few years he's been looking barely an inch shorter. If you see Jon barefoot 5'9 is questionable, but in footwear in clothes he generally looks a good 5'10 to me. Do lifts explain Jon's gain or have the others actually shrunk?
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/13
It isn't true that they're the same height. I've seen them live several times and he looks about 6 ft. I'm not sure he is as low as 5'11" flat but I could buy 182,
184.5 cm(er) said on 2/Oct/13
Is sambora really genuine a 6 footer rob? He does often come across as a tall guy but recently I've noticed when he stands next to jon bon jovi who's 5ft 9 and he's either the same height or just light taller, do you think he could be more a 5ft 9-10 himself?
Editor Rob
I think he's taller, but yeah, maybe he's no more than 5ft 11 and can look 5ft 10 range at times.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jun/13
Rob this is bizarre. See the bottom photo!! He looks the same height as Jon in one of the above photos too. Click Here

If you watch Bon jovi in concert (live or DVD etc) sambora does indeed look around the 6 foot range. Id have said 6 foot tall having seen Bon jovi in concert and on YouTube etc. Might I add what a fantastic guitarist !

He sounds superb in a stadium, agreed, but technically he's nowhere near the level of some of the instrumental and jazz guitarists. But as a rockstar in a rock band, agree his sound is absolutely amazing live and that's what matters to most!
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/13
Yeah he can look 5'11" range a lot, I think he's similar height to Mads Mikelsen and they look a little alike actually. He could be 182. But he's got long legs for his height, I was watching a concert last night and he was wearing long tight grey jeans and he was actually looking 6'2" by proportions but he was wearing cowboy boots so probably is near that height in them.

3:20. Michael Strahan 6 ft 5 NFL player towers him. Looks a good 6 inches taller than him.
Shaun said on 26/Sep/12
He can look 6 ft 1 a lot in my opinion. Barefoot next to Denise Richards from what I''ve seen he's looking about 6 inches taller and I think he genuinely around 6 ft.

Jon is only 5'5 but he wears those 3 inch stacked heeled cowboy boots so that makes him look 5' Richie's got some height on Jon,so yeah 5'11 or 6'0 is good

He has a good 4 inches on Tico Torres who I think is actually 5'5"-5'6", probably 5'5.5". Jon always looks a strong 5'9" in my opinion.
Shaun said on 13/Oct/11
Actually at 1:!4 Vaughn steps forward and they look similar range, probably because Sambora is closer to the camera he looks much taller.. I would still estimate Johnny Vaughn at 5'11" You ought to have a page for him.
Shaun said on 13/Oct/11
I personally would have estimated Johnny Vaughn at 5'11" though..
Shaun said on 13/Oct/11
Rob have a look at this

Click Here

Johnny Vaughn is listed at 6'0 yet Sambora somehow looks 2-3 inches taller than him. Vaughn looks barely an inch taller than 5'9" Jon. Do you think it more likely Johnny Vaughn is 5'10" and Sambora a strong 6'?
Editor Rob
I don't think sambora looked as much as 2-3 taller

nybruin said on 20/Sep/11
Oops, forgot he was wearing cowboy boots, so subtract 1"-1.5"... so you guys at around 6' are probably right.
nybruin said on 20/Sep/11
saw him on the Hi-Line in NYC about a year ago, looked north of 6', more like 6'1-2"... I'm 6'4", and am a good judge of height. Saw Kevin Bacon too, who looked 5'9" ish, but is skinny so he might be a touch taller.
Shaun said on 31/Dec/10

He has slope advantage but he does look around a legit 6' to me compared to 5'5.5" Denise Richards..
Samwise said on 31/Oct/10
Looked 5ft11 on X-factor next to 5f9 Jon and Dermit looked 5ft7
random said on 17/Apr/07
Definitely not 6'. At my work, there's pictures of my boss and random musicians he's met (it's a music store). My boss is around 5'4.5"/5'5". I'm 5'10", and I remember when seeing the picture for the first time I was surprised to find he was roughly my size, maybe a little more in comparison to my boss. Definitely no more than 5'11" as posted below. I'd go as low as 5'10" easily. He also has a pic with Jon Bon Jovi in which my boss and Jon look almost exactly the same height, found that humorous.
Roger said on 26/Feb/07
looks in above pic to have a highish waist but a shorter torso, looks no more than 5-11 tops their.
Glenn said on 17/Aug/06
David is 6ft.
honey said on 17/Aug/06
What was (is) David Bryan's height? (the keyboard player) He always seemed slightly shorter or the same as Rich, and definitely much taller than Jon.
Brad said on 16/Aug/06
Monster heels on Shania & RS is amazingly tall with those snakeskin cowboy boots he seems to wear at the NAMM show in Anaheim every year. Whatta great guy. You ought to see their (I guess HL's) house overlooking Westlake Village Ca.....I want that place!
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
your points are true Brad,and I love your estimations.but my point was that, this was the same moment of I went from 5-5 to 5-10.except,I didnt put on lifts or boots.Shania mustve had monster heels,and I bent my knees,in fact,I think a barricade was in my for the Rich pic,Stallone stance mode.
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
Rich used to look 6-3 to me 15 years ago.
Brad said on 14/Aug/06
Nobody can tell with boots, high heels, lifts, etc.. RS wears big time heeled boots. Almost caught my height of 6' 5". Always wears the coolest clothes.
Glenn said on 10/Aug/06
An hour after the Shania photo I look 5-8 here? in fact I look 5-10.cant always go by pics.and I love Bon Jovi.last cd sucked balls.Bounce was darker and heavier.better songwriting too.the Box set was a great gift to the fans.not a ripoff like other Box sets.and had one pure 80s,Savatage sounding metal song!
Brad said on 8/Aug/06
6' 2" with me. One of the nicest people to meet, so is Heather. What happened!!!? Bon Jovi gets better every LP & tour.
Glenn said on 30/Jul/06
He was 6-3 or more in boots 15 years ago his prime he was 6-1.thats what he told me.I agree he shrunk.

Sambo Fan said on 30/Jun/06
Richie appears to be 6.2. I have seen pics of him with my cousin and my cousin is 6.0. By the way, Richie isn't bad looking for a rocker his age.

Yeah, 5'11" sounds about right.
