How tall is John Densmore? He looked like he was the shortest member of the band
Editor Rob
Could look a few inches shy of Jim

I'm 100% sure he was 5'9 when he was young, he didn't look much shorter compared to Jim who was between 5'10 and 5'11.

I think his peak height might have been 5'9, John Densmore lists himself as 5'8 in his book, and in a lot of Doors pictures Robby (who wore similar boots to Jim's ones) seems to have an inch and a half on John.
Weird enough John Densmore is now about one inch and a half taller than Robby, which is definitely weird, I think Robby shrunked a lot.

In many Doors pics you can definitely see that he's not that short compared to him, I think one inch and a half shorter, considering that Jim was 180 cm I would say that Robby's peak height in the 60s was about 175-76 cm, now he's about 172 cm.

He was the exact same height as 'G'. I still remember the pic. He's 5'6.75.

he, like Jim, always wore boots on stage. I bet Jim's boots were bigger, but he always looked a couple inches taller, and jim was no more than 5'11 with boots, making him about 5'8.5-5'9. Robby had to be 5'7-5'8

Jim Morrison was was 5 ft 9.5 in barefooted. Robby was an inch and 1/2 shorter than Jim.
Steve said on 20/Dec/08
Robby, are you saying you were 5'8" back in your prime?
Robby said on 19/Dec/08
Jim was an inch and 1/2 taller than me. He was 5'9" and 1/2
Anonymous said on 8/Dec/08
Doorsfan, I agree. 5'8" looks about right here. I would say in his prime about 5'9". Jim did look a couple inches taller, like you said because of his boots. So Jim probably was close to Robbie's height, no doubt.
doorsfan said on 7/Dec/08
robby, if standing up straight, has clearly half an inch on 5.7 1/2 glenn, making him a strong 5 foot 8. He doesnt look like he has lost much height. Morrison was 2 inches taller than him in cowboy boots. without boots i suspect morrison to be around 5 ft 9ish.
glenn however is clearly not 5 ft 8, a little less.
Tony said on 6/Sep/08
Jim was only an inch to inch and 1/2 taller than Robby, which makes Jim 5 ft 9 to 5 ft 9 1/2 . Jim Morrison was NOT 5 ft 11 in. Sorry.
Brad said on 21/Aug/08
5' 7.5", 1" over Glenn.
Tony said on 20/Aug/08
Jim Morrison 5'9" to 5'9" 1/2 Ray Mansarek 6' 1/2 Robby Krieger 5'8" John Densmore 5'7"
hmm said on 4/May/08
He's half an inch taller than Glenn tops...but definately taller.
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
thanks ron.and lizard. rob- can we do that one day?
Lizard said on 14/Apr/08
In Densmore's book Riders on the storm, he says he's 5'8".
Don said on 13/Apr/08
Glenn, I'm a big Doors fan, and I appreciate all the posts of Morrison, Krieger, and Manzarek on your site. Would Rob or you consider adding a listing for Densmore ? That would give all 4 Doors a listing on your site, and I think that would be a great honor for a great band.
Curious said on 21/Mar/08
Kreiger was about the same size as Morrison when he wore those Frye boots. People say he looked slightly shorter, but maybe because of the high forehead from going bald. Remember, Jim had a ton of hair on his head.
glenn said on 20/Mar/08
thanks maurison.
Maurison said on 19/Mar/08
Great picture Glenn!
glenn said on 11/Feb/08
no problem steve.
glenn said on 10/Feb/08
all i know is he was 5-8 tops today.maybe not in his heyday.the tilt didnt affect his height as much as you think.he is leaning in a bit,but not really bending or hunching.
Steve said on 8/Feb/08
This question is for Glenn. I think your heights are pretty much all accurate.
But I was wondering, the December 28, 2007 pic below shows Robbie straighted up, so he isn't leaning in. Don't you think it makes him appear about 1 1/2"-2" taller? Maybe instead of 5'8", maybe 5'9"-5'9 1/2"?
glenn said on 12/Jan/08
i dont know how people see that.5-8 tops today.
anonymous said on 11/Jan/08
That picture which show Robbie straightened out makes him look a couple inches taller. Almost looks 5'10", but that's with shoes. Probably around 5'9", maybe a little taller when he was younger.
Catsman said on 6/Jan/08
Wow, what has happened to him? He looks more like 75 than 64.
Mr. T said on 5/Jan/08
Jesus, the sixties must have taken the toll on him. Great guitarist, too.
glenn said on 4/Jan/08
trust me.5-8 tops.i was thinking robbie kruger here too.
bruce_willis said on 1/Jan/08
my opinion: 5'8.5 - 5'9
glenn said on 31/Dec/07
only pot and lsd? gee.thats hope you meant not krieger.pot is still garbage.
AAAA said on 31/Dec/07
Whats funny is aside fro Morrison, most of the Doors were pretty clean. Pot and psychedelics yes,but only Morrison was the big partier, drinker, drug user.... that is what caused strain in the group. Densmore and Kreiger were actually into holistic food a medetation since they were 19-20. More of the "naturally" high and mind expanded. Morrison was the intoxicated dionysus. Funny thing is that he went from an Adonis to a vagabound in 4 years. If krieger is that bad, imagine if Morrison had lived, what he may have looked like. He'd have given keith richards a run for the title of most weathered rock star

What this man USED to look like. Age is a scary thing. He was a good looking guy at one point: Click Here
Original said on 30/Dec/07
He's 5'8 now...maybe a inch taller in peak height
glenn said on 29/Dec/07
d-anus- this was early in the im think you know it all,but you dont.
Danius said on 28/Dec/07
well w/e, hes taller than glenn by an inch. So he's 5'8.5
glenn said on 28/Dec/07
good job nick.he gave the strange illusion of 5-7 with his horrendous my imagination i dont see much difference with him straight could tell when a taller person is leaning in.
Anonymous said on 28/Dec/07
no way 5'8 hes slouching probably like 5'10ish.
nick said on 28/Dec/07
can appear 5'9 in the pic thoguh
nick said on 28/Dec/07

I straightened the pic with rob and glenn. He only appears to be a half inch taller so if there is any footwear advantage etc it would make up for it. He seems 5'8 maybe 5'8.5
Tom said on 28/Dec/07
So Jim Morrison is 5"10"...... My BAD, lol
Danimal said on 27/Dec/07
That's cool Glenn. If that's what he is, then I believe you, but I'd bet the farm that he was taller 40 years ago.
glenn said on 27/Dec/07
nothing against you danimal,but he looked 5-7.and its not the first time ive seen him.5-8 in reality.
Austrian said on 27/Dec/07
what tha ****... he looks like Freddy Krueger now :((
Bryan said on 27/Dec/07
Looks maybe 5'8 1/2. Could have been 5'9-5'10 back in the day?
Danimal said on 27/Dec/07
Come on, he's leaning in a lot man. This is NOTHING against Glenn, but if this old man stood up straight, an easy 5'9" and change.
glenn said on 26/Dec/07
not always easy to obtain.usually wont pose at hotels or venues.bumped into him in the street.during a couple days that he played.
john said on 26/Dec/07
jim looks 1 or 2 inches taller than him, so 5
lucao said on 26/Dec/07
he is definetly taller than 5'8
Steve said on 26/Dec/07
Robbie looks like he's leaning somewhat. But, 5'8" looks about right. When he wore boots and stood next to Jim Morrison, they looked around the same height. I wonder if Robbie will come out with a book like the other Doors members did.
poet in black leather said on 26/Dec/07
that makes morrison 6'...
Anthony said on 26/Dec/07
My gosh, he looks crap. He also looks taller.
