Met him years ago after a show for an autograph. Well, I got one by reaching over the crowd since I am 6'5", it was funny, he reached over and signed it. I'd estimate 6'2" peak height, maybe a bit less now.

Rob, I saw Rick on Sunday night in Waukegan, about 30 miles north of Chicago. I was also with him in the hotel bar afterwards. He's a top guy, he really is. He looked similar in height to me, so maybe a little over 6'1". He's very slim, no more than 150 lbs. He did a great show, and had no problem interacting with the people in the bar. Nice.
He could have shrank a bit by now.

I think there's quite a bit of Irish, Scottish and Welsh in there too.
Maneka said on 12/May/18
Definitely 6'2" or 6'3". I stood next to him on my cousin's interview show, I'm 6'0" and he is taller than me.

@ Editor Rob from the "8,000 listings" -"Howdy" from the Lone State of Texas. Nice to meet you.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Feb/16
"Peak height was 6ft 2in (188cm)"
Might still be that.

@Karey-Anne Foster I have been telling this board for years. Finally, they gave Rick another 1/2 ". I gave Rob kudos. But, I have never had a response from him. I think he knows there are some people better at judging heights than he. That is fine with me. Sly Stallone is a great man an artist, but is a short man. Nothing close to his listing.
Editor Rob: with over 8,000 listings it's a lot to keep track of, but listings change a lot...still doesn't mean it is correct or incorrect. A guess is still that - an estimate of height, which becomes right or wrong when a valid measurement is taken. Even then, you'd still get discussion over whether the measurement was valid :)

I think if anyone knows its Rick Springfield himself. Why would he say "I'm 6'2" " if it were false. I'm 5'11" barefoot and was wearing three inch heels on 09/05/15 when I saw RS in concert. The heels make me 6'1" and when I hugged him (!!!) Rick was taller than me by an inch or so. He's a tall lanky well built man of 66 years. So....
Rey said on 14/Mar/15
6'2" was spot on in his prime. Could still be very close.
said on 13/Oct/14
Rob, is it possible that he was 6ft2 in the 80s?
[Editor Rob: it is a chance of course. ]
Brad said on 10/Jun/14
6' 2" right next to me. Bank it.
Rey said on 23/Apr/14
Another accurate upgrade! Good work!

Hi Rob just watched a documentary with Rick Springfield and Dave Grohl. He had about 1.5 inches on Dave Grohl. If you image search Dave Grohl and Rick Springfield you can see he is 1 inch taller even with the lean. I would estimate him to be in the 186 maybe even 187 range.
Rey said on 9/Aug/13
Appeared about 1.25 -1.75" taller than Dr.(6'1") Oz which aired today.

You've definitely got Rick's height wrong. Something between 6ft 1.5in to 6ft 2in would be more appropriate.
Rey said on 20/Jul/13
He is a tall man. Met him in Austin 1984--Corey Hart opened for him. Very big guy not some skinny guitar player. Big boned must be close to 6'2" --which he claimed on his show "High Tide"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Sep/12
True, but do you think you might have this guy a little low?
said on 2/Sep/12
Rob could this be a rare occasion where you may have a height listing off by an inch?
[Editor Rob: nothing is impossible in the world of height...well, except G being 5ft 8 ;)

Brad said on 16/Mar/09
I got one, I'm owning him by 4". I ain't putting it up, I don't know how anyway. He freaking rocks and has the best looking chicks ever at a show.
Clark said on 14/Mar/09
How about some new pics for Rick!!
T.J. said on 15/Feb/09
A definite 6'2"
B said on 23/Jan/09
Did you see him on Lyrics tonight? He looks a little taller than an inch over the six-foot Brady.
Hugh said on 10/Jan/09
By guess 6ft2-3?
Brad said on 7/Jul/08
Why does it still say 6' 1"?
Kate said on 4/May/08
I've stood nest to him, and he's at least six feet two. He's also much better looking now!
Clark said on 29/Mar/08
Ok..the time has come to upgrade Rick!!
Sabrina said on 5/Feb/08
He is DEFINITELY 6'2. I've gotten a hug from the guy so I know from sight and experience :)
clark said on 7/Jan/08
Not that it makes that difference, but the RS link about Rick's height "Australia made you--America has you"!!! Is NOT by Christie, but by me. Yours truly....Clark
glenn said on 5/Jan/08
yeah rob.anthony is right.6-2 strong at that still till this day.i see him often.
Anthony said on 4/Jan/08
This guy seriously needs an upgrade. Springfield is a very solid 6'2 and has never looked less.
clark said on 4/Jan/08
During a Christmas event in NYC, two years ago. Al Roker told Rick, 'you are one tall elf.' Upgrade Rick!!!!He may be 6'2 1/2 inches. Go Rick!!
clark said on 3/Jan/08
I had the opportunity to work with Rick one summer, and he IS a tall Aussie. My aunt waited on him back in the early '70's, and she is 5'9" in flat feet, but she said she was wearing 3 inch heels, and that he was about 6'2". many of his "meet and greet" pictures do not show his true height because the event becomes very tiring, and Rick does some major slouching. Also, if you have never seen him perform live--you have missed one the best concerts, ever. He is a great guy!! Stand tall and be proud Richard Lewis Springthorpe a.k.a. Rick Springfield. Australia made you--America has you!!!
Christy said on 23/Oct/07
Rick, according to Rick, is 6'2". I asked him one time when I met him because I'm 5'11" and he seemed so much taller than me. He is such a GREAT man. So fan friendly. And really wonderful to children. My daughter is almost 14 now and has adored him since she was 5! She, too, has met Rick on more than one ocassion and he's always so sweet to her! He is a far bigger man than his 6'2" frame! Upgrade him Rob!
Radka said on 7/Oct/07
I think he looks younger than 58. He is a great guy. And great musician who writes amazing music! Luv it(his music).
BTW: Hey guys!Don`t envy him. He just lives healthily! And that`s why he looks so good!
glenn said on 23/Jul/07
he is 6-2.had no clue he was that tall.
tallchick said on 22/Jul/07
I just met him ealrier this month. I am 6' and I didn't think he was that much taller until I got the pictures back, he is a solid 6'2".
Mr. R said on 9/Jul/07
During his General Hospital years, he was listed at 6-2.
Franco said on 5/Jul/07
he surely looks old! i dont remember him like that at all, what a surprise, he still writes great music though.
he definetly looks no less than 6'0
185cm seems reasonable.

Kind of awkward story. Ran into this guy in the bathroom at one of his shows (wife's a huge fan). Finished washing my hands, turned around and he was walking in. I'm 5'11", and he seemed a solid 6'2" I would've guessed 6'3" he's a big guy, very lean, gives a taller appearance than he is I suppose.
Derek said on 4/Feb/07
Everyone is saying 6'2". I think he needs to be upgraded Rob.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
Anthony said on 28/Jan/07
Yeah, he always looked 6'2 to me.
Viper said on 27/Jan/07
I thought he was more 6-2.
footballed28 said on 25/Jan/07
this guy is definitely close to 6'2...I would say 6'1 1/2 to 6'2...bumped into him some 3 years ago in New York
J-Dog said on 25/Jan/07
Derek said on 24/Jan/07
Definitely more than 6'1". I think you need to upgrade him Rob.
Brad said on 24/Aug/06
6' 2". I just stood by him last week. Doesn't look 57. Sings & plays like 1981.
