How tall is Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart's Height

5ft 10 (177.8 cm)

English (with Scottish allegiance) singer best known for songs such as Tonight's the Night, Maggie May and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy.
There are two misconceptions about me that get repeated. "One, that I'm tight. Two, that I'm five foot, seven inches, which annoys me. The papers say, 'Midget-like Rod, Penny's boyfriend'. "I'm not five foot, seven inches, I'm more like five foot, 11 inches."
-- 2007

I don't mind if a girl I go with is taller than me, because it means she has long legs, and that's IT for me.
What are the inherent advantages of dating the taller lady?
That everyone thinks you're 5'3". Whereas I'm 5'11", as you can tell. So people are always pleasantly surprised that you don't come up to their waist.
-- GQ Magazine, 2012
Rod Stewart told yesterday how cops were hunting a randy fraud who's bedding dozens of girls by posing as him.
But what has really upset twice-married Rod is that the pint-sized conman is only five foot three inches tall.
Rocker Rod moaned: "I'm five foot 10. How can my girl fans be fooled? They think they're sleeping with me."
-- The Daily Record, 1997 (Dec 30)

He's claimed 5'10 and 5'11 which would suggest he fell between those heights at peak.

Still looks 5'10 to me.
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/23
I saw on the news yesterday that Rod has funded around five or six expensive operations for people on an extended waiting list. What a lovely thing of Rod to do, and he intends to pay for more.

He gets my full respect and appreciation for this wonderful act of kindness. He’s changed the lives of these people and all those that were looking on, helpless, as their loved ones suffered.

5ft10, peak. πŸ’•πŸŽΌπŸŽΆ
Paul 5' 9.75" said on 14/Jan/23
I say at age 78, it's definitely time for peak and current listings.

He's held up very well, like McCartney and Jagger.

I'd list him as 5' 10.25" (178.4 cm) - peak, and 5' 9.5" (176.5 cm) currently.

5' 10.25" with a 1.25-1.5" heel at times, would've given off a 5' 10.5-10.75" impression, which he could certainly pull off in the past.

What do you think about that, Rob?
Editor Rob
Does look like he's lost height, but not as much as his age would suggest.
Paul 177 cm said on 14/Jun/22

I'd give Rod 5' 10.5" peak and 5' 9.5" currently (or possibly 176 cm).

He has pulled off the full 5' 11" with slight footwear advantage before.

He'd probably have been 5' 10" flat when you created his page, with him most likely in his early 60s at the time.

Amazing how one can have such estimates ranging from 5' 5" to 6' 1" though!!
Paul 177 cm said on 11/Jun/22
Peak height: 5' 10.5" (179.1 cm)

Up to 2012 ish: 5' 10" (177.8 cm)

Current height: 5' 9.25" (175.9 cm)

He's held up well and looks great for 77.
ChristianPerkins said on 17/May/22
I'm surprised that there hasn't been a peak and a current listing for him yet, considering he's still active and alive.
Editor Rob
He could be due one.
Lamont Cranston said on 15/May/22
He was n Bill Maher’s β€˜real time’ show, may 13, 2022.

While footwear can always β€˜help’ Rod did look a couple inches taller than Bill. Rod even had to noticeably stoop a little to embrace Bill.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 9/Jan/22
Average guess is closer to the truth. Not sure he ever looked the full five tenm Certainly no less than 5'9.5 though
Arch Stanton said on 24/Nov/21
He did look around 5 ft 10, but he's about 75 or 75 now. Rod is another of those guys most people think are super short. Highly recommended listening: Beck-Ola, Stewart with the Jeff Beck Group, 1969. Great album! Click Here
toddd0461 said on 20/Nov/21
This deserves a peak height update. May have been 178 then, but looks about 176-177.
Colt Seavers said on 23/Aug/21
Peak height 5'9"
bernie said on 2/Mar/21
After watching some pics with 6'1" Penny Lancaster, both wearing regular shoes/ flats, Rod is nowhere near 5'10". There always seems to be a 4 inch gap at least between them. 5'9" if hes lucky, but i even doubt that to be honest, guess 5'8" may be closer to the truth...
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Feb/21
I'm watching 'All Star Family Fortunes' on the Challenge channel. Vernon Kay asked the teams to name a type of rod. Of course, fishing rod came up but then somebody said "Rod Stewart!"

It was only a correct answer!


5ft10 for Rod at his peak. 5ft9.5 for today's height. 🎧😁🎢

Rod Stewart is totally amazingly cool.Great performer,great songs,looks about five ten maybe even five eleven.I'm a true big fan.Maggie May is a classic loved Album Body Wishes when i was twelve in 1983.Baby Jane was number one this time also in 1983.With age though and he definetley doesn't look his age years younger i would say five eleven peak and five ten and a smidge taller now.
Rick Gage said on 16/Jun/20
Penny Lancaster has a video on her Instagram, where they are both wearing trainers, and there honestly isn't that much height difference. I would say she is 2 inches taller than him. So he is at least 5'10 and probably closer to 5'11
Christopher Cygos said on 16/Jun/20
Imagine that picture of Rod and Penny, without the heels she is wearing. She wouldn't be much taller than him and she's 6'1. It's just crazy to say he's not at least 5'10. And he probably was 5'11, 20 years ago.
Christopher Cygos said on 16/Jun/20
People saying he's 5'7.....that's crazy. Penny Lancaster is just incredibly tall. She's 6'2. I've seen pictures of Rod Stewart with Mick Jagger and Keith Richard's in the 70s, and Rod is the same height as Mick and way taller than Keith. Go and look at pictures of Rod Stewart standing with people who aren't Penny Lancaster - he's always one of the tallest people in the room.
Chad Clement said on 16/May/20
He doesn't look more than 5 foot 9 and that's with thick heeled shoes and boots on. He's no more than 5 foot 7 tops!
Chester said on 24/Feb/20
I met him after a concert in 2015, I'm a solid 5'10, closer to 5'11 and I would have been 6ft bang on at the time given I was wearing dress shoes with an inch heel. He's no more than 5'7, and that's being generous as he also had a heel on, much bigger than mine. He stood nose to nose with my girlfriend, who's 5'7, and she was barefoot after her heels had caused her some jip. He may have been 5'10 as a young fella, no way on earth he's close to it now. 5'6'-5'7" maximum. He's a shortie

My heart goes out to Rod Stewart for talking about his recent battle with prostate cancer. It was Penny who was being interviewed on 'Loose Women', but we did get to see a healthy and humorous Rod who spoke to the women and left a very important message to men everywhere - to get themselves checked out.


tom malyn said on 4/Sep/19
Sat next to him at Celtic park for the first game of the season against st.johnstone. He is 5'6" max and very slight.
Gus Delaney said on 11/Aug/19
My wife and I saw him on the street in NYC. 5’6” tops. 130 pounds tops. Anyone claiming he is 5’9” or more is nuts. Maybe lifts.

Doesn’t matter, his talent is 8 feet tall.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jul/19
I wonder how many people know that one of Rod's biggest hits, 'Sailing', was in fact, a cover version of a hit by The Sutherland Brothers Band, who later became The Sutherland Brothers and Quiver, who were famed for their Spring 1976 hit 'Arms of Mary'? I bought both of them. πŸ˜πŸŽΆπŸ’ΏπŸ’Ώ

Rod gets 5ft10.

@ Bob ilori - Interesting comment!

I seen him standing next to Steve Tyrell and I think he is only about 5'6.Rod looks about 5'8 ish

I confess I don't know who Steve Tyrell is Bobbi, but if you google him with Frankie Valli and Neil Sedaka I think you will agree he is 5'8 or 5'9 - certainly not 5'6.
Bob ilori said on 3/Jan/19
I met Rod at Harlow football ground in Hertfordshire in December 2018 and he is a SOLID 5'10" -11" easy.
I am a garden gnome at 5'7"and he was a good 3" -4" inches taller than me and I have the photos to prove it. I guess his wife is wearing high heels as well so , 6'1" and 4" heels u do the maths. By the way he was a REAL GENTLEMAN and let me take a photo, no hassle to him at all , what a gent!!!!...
Animus said on 1/Oct/18

Might have lost 1/2-3/4 inch or so, could arguably have been strong 5ft 10 range and now weak.

My mum and her partner went to watch Rod in concert this month in Vegas after winning a competition and got to meet him in his dressing room. My mum's partner is a solid 5"11 and Rod looked no more than an inch shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/17
Rob, how likely is 179cm?
Richard said on 1/Feb/17
I don't believe he is as tall as he says.Sly Stalone said the same thing & he is closer to 5'8" just like Stewart.But what does he care what we think he's got alot.

He used to be 5'10" but he's below 5'9" now.

F*ck always thought that he was at least 5'7 hahaha. Pretty tall though, good one!

I think he is 5'9" at best. He might not even quite make that.

Epog said on 12/Oct/16
If he's 5'10" then his wife is 6'5" lol. He's like 5'6"

His wife his 6'1, so assuming she is in flats in this pic a 5'6 guy would come up to her mouth/bottom of her nose.
Click Here

He's a solid 5'10. 5'11 in his twenties. You could argue strong 5'9 for him but 5'5 and 5'6 guesses for Rod, which I've seen a lot of, are BS,

I saw him up close and today he looks 5'9ish I thought, 5'10 in his twenties though is likely.
Jack 182 said on 11/Sep/16
I'm a huge Rod Stewart fan and I saw him live recently, I'm pretty sure he is probably about 5'9 without shoes, he definitely was 5'10/11 back when he was younger though.
Parker said on 11/Mar/16
In his bare feet on Alan Carr last night. 70 years old, still a solid 5'10.
IronFist said on 27/Nov/15
He probably thought he was 5'5 years ago due to misunderstanding the metric system. I can't imagine he would still not know his own height years later.
cgf said on 24/Nov/15
I saw him in a hotel in New York 2 years ago, and I can't even understand how can somebody think that he is 5-10. I am 5-9 and he was remarkably shorter than me: 5-6 I'd say he is.
CarbSnarfer said on 19/Aug/15
He did a dancing skit with Fallon a year or so ago and looked about an inch shorter than the 5-11ish Fallon, so the above height is correct.
Matthew said on 13/Jul/15
He can look much shorter than 5'10" on this occasion: Click Here
Here he is looking very similar to Carlos Santana: Click Here
Although he's got Sly Stallone: Click Here

Maybe a weak 5'10" fits better than the full 5'10"?
About 5 10 said on 11/Jul/15
There's no question that this guy wears lifts on some occasions though. He actually looks about 5' 11" in 2015 at age 70! He's looking taller than ever. Look at him with Prince Charles and Simon Cowell at this year's Prince's Trust event for example. He could be a legit 5' 10" though. There is no way he is "short" though, that's absolute nonsense!
6'1" Joe said on 19/Jun/15
This guy is 5'10", was probably 5'11" in his peak years. I understand how annoying it is for someone who's taller than the average guy and getting called short every time. Blame it on his linking for taller women lol. Not a single girl he has dated in the past 40 years has been shorter than 5'11",
Phil K said on 23/May/15
I walked past Rod when he was with a very tall girl in Newcastle city centre (I was going to work) and 5 ft 10 he is NOT. I was taller, and I'm not 5 10
swbo101 said on 8/Apr/15
I met Rod Stewart and I'm 5'10", I easily towered over him. He's 5'6" tops.
Sean5 said on 4/Apr/15
It's similar to Tom Cruise myth that he's short when 5'10 is still surely above average in the Uk still? Why do people do it? Is it to get the celebrities feel insecure about themselves or trying to get a reaction out of them?
slick said on 9/Mar/15
rod was 180 in his younger days. Ive worked back stage with him he is around 178 today
Parker said on 19/Feb/15
Yep, the media is extremely powerful. +5 years ago Rod was actually being listed at 5'5 on many sites.He was so annoyed he actually went on Parkinson with a Newspaper article to refute the claims haha. Similar to Cruise, the media would have you believe he's 5'3.
Editor Rob
the thing with Cruise is that some journalists have met him and been Annoyed that he looked 5ft 8 and so they take the hump.
Almost 5 10 said on 15/Feb/15
Rod Stewart's really had quite a time of it over the years, on the height front. Almost as bad as Cruise! He really is 5' 10". I've compared him with loads of celebs. Just goes to show the influence the media can have on people, doesn't it! I mean, if people believe he's only 5' 5", then lord knows what else in the world they believe to be true...
Editor Rob
I'd probably get a bit annoyed at some of those articles that called him 5ft 5 because it got picked up by some other papers and they have ran with it aswell.
lelman said on 21/Sep/14
Parker, he's wearing heeled dress shoes and she's in flats, and to be honest I do see a near 3 inch difference between them, don't be fooled by his hair. I can't see him above 5' 10" nowadays, maybe in his prime he could have been close to 5' 11" though.
Spirit Level said on 12/Aug/14
I'm not disputing him being 5' 10". But I'd be very surprised if he measured 5' 11" barefoot, Parker. As I said, he can pull off looking 5' 11" but that's when he wears his distinctive heeled footwear - or when Penny stoops slightly. He may actually wear them just because he likes that type of shoe and they suit him - as opposed for height gain.
Parker said on 10/Aug/14
@spirit level
Why would he give a rats backside whether he was 5'10 or 5'11.? I watched a documenatary last night,they had some footage of him playing football from his younger days - really long legs. He looked every inch 5'11 to me.

Most shots with his 6'1 wife she has significant heels on, but on the odd occasion she isn't there doesn't look a 3 inch difference IMO.
Click Here
Spirit Level said on 10/Aug/14
5' 10" peak height. Could often look taller with bigger heeled footwear, so I can see why he claims 5' 11".
Don Geiger said on 10/May/14
I used to own BESTIES in Hermosa Beach, CA, I was 6'2" and stood between Rod and George several times. George who I saw many, many times was 5'6, max 5'7. Rod was an easy 5'10-11 in street heeled shoes.
Parker said on 25/Apr/14
Claims 5'11 in his autobiography.
Parker said on 18/Apr/14
Here's Rod with his 6'1 wife. You cannot see her shoes, but lets assume she's barefoot, certainly she must be in footwear that gives virtually no height gain.

Rod cannot be under 5'10
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/14
LOL. Missy you've picked the worst possible photo for comparison!!! Her in heels and him on lower curb. If you seem them together in flats on level ground she looks a little over 3 inches taller only. I'd guess 5'9.5".
Cliff said on 13/Jan/14
He looks 6 inches shorter than wife in the above pic, but she has got 4" heels on.
Also in a paper article it was talking about his amazingly slim figure at 12and a half stone. So that is only a slim weight if you are tall enough to carry it off. If he was short at that weight, he would be obese.
He only looks an inch shorter than Piers as well, but taking into consideration Morgan probably isn't standing bolt upright.
So I think 5ft10 sounds right, no complaints. Good on Rod for not exaggerating his height.
Missy said on 13/Jan/14
Here's Rod with his 6'1" wife. She's actually got bend knees here.
Click Here

Which makes me think that he's probably 5'8" & George Best was probably 5'6"
Cliff said on 12/Jan/14
Such differing estimates for Rod, but he doesn't look short in any pics I see of him. I mean he looks 6inches shorter than his wife in the above pic, but she is wearing 4inch heels, and he looks maybe an inch shorter than Piers, but I take into account Piers probably isn't standing bolt upright.
But in the paper today it was talking about how slim he was at 12 and a half stone, and that isn't that slim unless you are pretty tall.
So I would say 5ft10 is about right.

Craig 177 said on 12/Jun/13
I'd bet top dollar on 178 cm, back in the '70s. And 176 cm now.

It's what I call 'The Bon Jovi Effect'. Rod still manages to look 5' 10.5", by wearing thick heeled boots - although they do suit him style wise.

I'm 5' 9.75" and trust me, I do the same to look nearer 5' 11" on some occasions...

I worked back stage security on Rod Stewart's dressing room (in 98 or 99 I think) and I don't care what anyone says He is TINY! I am only 5 foot 2 inches and he seemed small to ME! He is no where near 5'9'' ( My Husband is 5 foot 9 inches my Father is 5 foot 9 inches)I'd say MAYBE 5'6'' He is just a very petite man.

No offence but if he was 5 ft 6 Kelly Jones form the phonics is struggling with 5'0". He's near 5 ft 10 but for some reason always gives off a short impression, doesn't help having a 6 ft 1 wife in heels..
Matt Hopper said on 12/Jun/12
I meet him some years back. We shared flight from LA to Auckland NZ. He was sitting just next row. Thought this guy lookes like Rod Steward but then I noticed Penny and the rest of the clan. We walked around with no shoes on. I am 172 cm, a strong 5'7, but he had almost twon inches on me. A good 5'9 flat.

If he really is 5'10, her wife is no less than 6'2, more like 6'2.5!

got to wonder do these people get measured in shoes with their head tilted up cheating the measurement by a bit. or with the measureing tape not fully straight or still when taking the measurement. who knows. he never looked near this height.

Anybody who doubts this listing and thinks he is short see Rod Stewart and Stereophonics Hand Bags and Glad Rags. Looks six foot next to 5'4" Kelly Jones.

Funnily enough, I thought Rod looked 5' 9.5" in that video - especially alongside Ben Shephard (who is 5' 9" but claims 5' 10").

But yeah, Rod is not short. I think he'd probably just edge out Prince Charles by half an inch if they were both measured barefoot. Charles often looks 175 cm to me, but may have been taller in his youth.

Rod can pull-off 5' 11" when wearing decent heeled shoes or lifts, as he does on some occasions.

Weak 5'10" nowadays. Looks same height as 5'9.5" Prince Charles. Penny Lancaster is 6'1" but often wears 3 inch heels. As Liam Gallagher once said He's almost six foot and everybody thinks he's a short ass. He's tall his missus though is about 6'4" in heels.

Met him at Mr. Chows in Bev Hills in 2009. I'm 6'2". When standing next to him, my guess is he's about 5'4" or maybe 5'5". He's also very slight of build and I would guess no more than 150 lbs

Did your guide dog guess his height for you Josh?

Just seen a photo of Rod with 6' 1" Michael Caine. He appears to be a good 4 inches taller than Rod, with looser posture too. Having trouble uploading it though.

As for the comparisons with Prince Charles, just google 'Rod Stewart, Prince Charles'. You'll see many photos of them at different events and they appear identical.

5' 9" (175 cm) these days for Rod Stewart.

They were then renamed 'The Faces' when the taller Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood joined.

Wood is 5' 8.25". Stewart is 5' 9.5" minimum, possibly 5' 10".
Adam said on 11/Jun/11
Rod Stewart sang for the Small Faces at one point and they called themselves that because they were all under 5'7".
178 said on 30/Apr/11
5' 10" is a safe bet for sure. But if we are going to be ultra picky and weigh up a range of photos, then 5' 9.5" is an even safer bet. There are too many flat 5' 9"ers who he just scrapes by 1 cm like Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury, Prince Charles etc... Some of whom may also have been taller in the past.

Penny's also slightly below 6' 1" (more 184 cm).
Parker said on 29/Apr/11
Most of the time his 6'1 wife is wearing significant heels. When she is not,he doesn't look less than a solid 5'10 to me.

Rod's half an inch taller than 5' 9" Paul McCartney (who was 5' 10" peak).

Both Paul and Rod peaked at 178 cm, but could pull off "looking" 5' 11" in the 60s with 2" Cuban heels etc... I can understand people thinking they were nearer to 5' 11".

But 5' 9.5" is as accurate as possible for Rod now.
fuzzblaster said on 15/Apr/11
He's 5'9.5" at most as his wife at 6.1 towers over him by what looks like 4 inches when both in sneakers. I think fluorescent suits & huge hair make a person look slightly taller than they are.
Parker said on 9/Apr/11
I've got an old pic somwhere of Rod looking a solid 2 inches taller than 5'9 Denis Law. It was some years back though

Here's Rod next to 5'8 Emma Thompson(presumably in heels)and 5'10.5 Michael Palin

Never under 5'10 in my opinion. Close to 5'11 40 years ago.

Just seen footage of 'An Audience With Rod Stewart'. At the end Rod, Kelly Jones and Ben Shephard are stood chatting for a few minutes. Jones appears 5' 5" maximum. Stewart and Shephard appear identical (both wearing normal footwear).

Shephard is 5' 9.5" (regularly listed at 5' 10" though) and Stewart is no taller. Here's Shephard below:

2 inches above 5' 7.5" Chris Moyles and Gary Barlow (also note that Ronan Keating appears closer to 5' 7" than 5' 8"):

How many inches do you see between Rod and Penny in this photo Rob? The ground's even but Rod has a footwear advantage. Cheers.

Editor Rob
in that photo near to 4. Rod looks in a position which takes more height away than Penny's one foot position.
176 cm said on 21/Mar/11
If Rod's not 5' 9", Mercury must've been the 5' 9.75" that many people think he was.

Would you upgrade Freddie to 5' 9.75" or downgrade Rod, if you had to alter either listing Rob?

I have stood beside Rod Stewart, when he was visiting Sydney Australia. I am 170cms tall, he was wearing flat shoes and would be around 179 (5'11"). I had always thought he was short, and was surprised when the friend I was with, signalled for me to look at the person next to me and I looked into his neck and was taken aback. He was also a much bigger build than I thought and had amazing skin. He was with Rachel Hunter at the time.

Assuming Penny's 6' 1" (although she's sometimes listed as 6' 0"), what would you estimate Rod's height to be based on this photo, Rob?


Editor Rob
I think he's got a longer stride, definitely has less sneakers than her and the pavement looks a bit uneven, so it's harder to really say what the difference actually is rather than what it appears in the photo.
Xdan said on 25/Feb/11
I met him in Monte Carlo, few years ago, and he was strong 5ft and 10 (with flat shoes)

I had drinks in a pub with Rod in 2000. He was in to catch a soccer game on satellite. I'm 5'9" and he was about 1/2" taller than I, but maybe he had lifts, I don't know. Either way, I was in sneakers, and he wasn't much taller than me...

I saw him at Celtic Park for the FC Braga game, he walked by and one of my friends got an autograph. I'd say this is accurate enough. He likes small but doesnt seem small when you get up close.
Gilly said on 16/Jun/09
I am 5 feet 7 , and met Rod outside a hotel after a concert in 1991. I asked him for a kiss,and he walked over and gave me a peck on the cheek,so I was very close!. He was 3 or 4 inches above me in flat shoes, and very,very gorgeous.
Dylan said on 8/May/09
I always thought he was 5'11" at his peak. I suppose he could have shrunk a little now he is in his sixties.

Thanks, Glenn. I thought Ronnie was taller than that.

daniel-highly unlikely,but not impossible.i told this story years ago,i think.on an elton john tribute album,all the performers had nice things to say about elton.rod strangely mentioned that he as taller than elton and bernie taupen(sp) in his statement.rod was similar in height to 5-10.5 ron wood in the old days.maybe a hair taller.
Daniel said on 5/May/09
Glenn, do you think Rod could have been closer to 6ft in his youth?
Blue said on 5/May/09
Look at 'RJ 7th June 08' pictures I think he as got it right about Rod's height because I came face to face with Prince Charles when he called in at HMS Ganges near Ipswich when he was Captain of a Naval ship several years ago and he was the same height as me 5'9" and my pal who was with me stands 6'0" and he was taller than Charles.

Parker looked at your photos very misleading Rod could be wearing 4" heels as advertised in the Bubarri advert that would make a 5'7" person 5'11".
Parker said on 4/May/09
Reg - I never said Rod was as tall as Penny - she's close to 6'2 in my opinion, but no way is he 5'8 as you suggest. He's minimum 5'10.
Reg said on 4/May/09
That's what I said Parker 9" normally for height of a persons head that picture is completely misleading do you believe every thing you see in the paper and your second picture speaks for it's self there is no way Rod is as tall as Penny angle of which the photo was taken in your fist picture can deceive you read 'Photos Perspective'

Rod's not less than 5'10, and more likely closer to 5'11. He doesn't lie about his height.
Reg said on 1/May/09
Why do people lie about their height if Rod is 5'7"/5'8" why doesn't he say so instead of trying make out he is taller what difference doe's it make how tall you are it's what sort of person you are that counts.
Reg said on 30/Apr/09
If Penny is 6'1.8" with high heels would make her Poss. 6'4" next to Rod she looks 8" taller even though he is wearing elevator shoes which would make Rod 5'8".(Remember a persons head is normally 9" from the chin to the top of the head).
MHouillon said on 30/Apr/09
I don't understand why nowadays German tv-magazines have him on 173cm. He's a solid 5'10, the same height as Tom Jones and a little over Paul McCartney (who is 5'9.5) at the Queen's Golden Jubilee.

He wears flat heels and is a honest 5'10. In his early days a 179cm (5'10.5).

I was standing next to Rod and Long John at Bolton's Saxon barns on Lord Leverhulm's estate.1967
We were all having a "Fraser" together in the room for Gentlemen.
I am 5'-10" and I'd say Rod was my height no more.
Long John was about 2" taller I'd say 6 foot tops
Being in the middle I was getting there gibber in both earholes.
They cudn't half rabbit- on.

Doug said on 23/Jan/09
I swear everytime I see Penny Lancaster she looks 6 ft 4 inches in two inch heels that she normally wears. She always looks a good six inches taller. She is definately taller than 6 ft 1, she has an inside leg of 37 inches!!! Guys who are 6 ft 7 would have that sort of measurement. She is huge. I remember Liam Gallagher saying that Rod is quite a tall guy, a little over average, its just his missus is 6 foot 4, after he met them.

Now, bear with me . . .

Prince Charles is 5'9" max.:

Charles is not quite as tall as Prince Philip, who looks about 6" taller than the Queen at 5'2"(?); that's consistent with my perception of Philip at 5m distance at an official opening ceremony. Charles is clearly a good 6"+ shorter than Prince William, who is said to be 6'2"+.

I saw Rod Stewart decades ago as part of Steam Packet. It was in a small club and I was up close, I'd be surprised if he were more than 5'8" out of his customary heels. The beefed-up jacket shoulders always make people look taller than they really are, as they make the head look smaller in relation to the torso (e.g. Prince Philip; heads don't vary that much in size).

my boyfriend met rod stewart when he was doing lighting for one of his concerts, he's a little under 6' (with his steel toe caps maybe 6'1") and said he towered over rod when he was talking to him... keifer sutherland was backstage watching him too (and he's supposedly 5'8.5") but according to my boyfriend noticably taller than rod. in his opinion rod would be nearer 5'8", or, like he said, barely taller than me 5'6.5".
Anonymous said on 20/May/07
Is Penny Lancaster really 6'1? because next to 6'1.25 Michael Caine she doesn't look much taller (asuming she's wearing heels) and he isn't reallycloser to the camera. I say she's 6 feet even. And Rod Stewart I think is 5'9.5.

he says hes 5-11 but people think hes shorter cuz he dates very tall women. He does look short on tv and pics tho'. if he was 5-11 he would be 6 feet with shoes and 6-1 if wearing cowboy boots and he surely does not look 6-1 at all. So women he dates are 6-3 at least? I dont think so!

I worked security for one of his concerts last year, and met both he and his then fiancee. Rod was shorter than me, so I'd put him at 5'10. Penny was every bit of 6'1, and that was in flat converse all stars.

The rest of The Faces must be really small. Rod and Woody tower over them in every photo I've seen of them. The Faces were great, really underrated.

Maybe these guys who think Stewart's 5'5" are confusing him with Steve Marriot. He WAS small. The Small Faces became The Faces when the taller Stewart and Wood joined.

Correct Glenn, though I have seen a few pics where Mick looks taller than Jerry. In heels of course.

Rod's got to be at least 5'10. No way he's only 5'5. The press seems to have fun putting him as well as Jagger down heightwise. Jealous bunch of guys if you ask me.

Dominic said on 23/Apr/06

Well I met Rod Stewart at his concert in Phoenix. I am exactly 5' 10" if not taller. And I got to get backstage thanks to the Rod Stewart fan club and actually got to meet him! It was great. He was my height maybe a little taller so 5' 10.5" is def a reasonable assumption. I would say more around 5' 11" would be a MORE correct assumption. And isn't it funny that "THE Chris Daughtry" says he met Rod Stewart the same day that the American Idol was shown with Rod Stewart as the special guest. Just an observation.

Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
Then explain the photo with Kelley. Rod is wearing huge heels and he's at the very least two inches shorter. And Kelley isn't 6'.

It's like I'm telling you people, I'd see these famous people and in some cases I'd be taller and I'm just 5'11" and don't wear shoes with heels any higher than about an inch. I'd read somehwere that so and so is 6' and then I'd see him at some event or at the studio and wouldn't you know it, he'd be shorter than me. That's not to say there's not a lot of tall actors emerging today. There are. Most are now well over 6'. This is especially true with actors who work in TV.

At the risk of repeating myself, George Best was measured officially by Man Utd at 5'9 in his prime. I've seen plenty of Photo's of Rod with George and Rod ALWAYS looked several inches taller.

actually I do agree that he can be that...his claim is 5ft 11, he might not be that far from it...

remarkably, in all the years I've been going to Celtic matches I've yet to see Stewart up close! Whenever he is there, he always manages to sneak away...

He can look 5-11 even in slippers.

MHouillon said on 18/Mar/06
Hi, Glenn. Even though it seems you met almost everyone (maybe even McCartney) I have to say, that caliming a 5'11.5" (182cm)-height for McCartney isn't a little ridicolous, but very ridicolous. How tall is Tom Jones then ? 6'1" ?

Look at pictures of Tom Jones (5'10) and Paul McCartney on Getty Images from the late 60's. Tom is clearly taller, reduce Tom's Cuban heels, then he would be still slightly taller. As he is today, remember the Linda McCartney tribute-show ? They were standing next to each other and Tom did not wear his heavy-heeled boots (picutres available) and was still a bit taller. Paul McCartney is 5'9.5". And Rod Stewart, who was standing on the stage together with Paul McCartney on the Queens jubilee in 2002, seems to be 5'10.5 (179cm).

Best wishes, Marco

Just saw the queens jubilee from 2002. At the end, all stars sang "All you need is love" on stage and were standing right beside each other. Rod was at least an inch taller than Ozzy Osbourne (5'9.5) and Paul McCartney (5'9.5).

5'10.5 (179cm) for Rod
TheMan said on 13/Feb/06
In that pic above i can garantee without even looking that he's got some bigshoes on to go with that suit he would have to. I stil belive he's only like 5,8 myself. He's standing infront probably bigger ground that pic IMO is bad to judge he's height on.

He does look a solid 5-10. I wonder why there are 5-5 height listings for him. That is nuts.
D. Ray Morton said on 12/Feb/06
Whatever his real height (having seen him in person, I'd go along with 5'10") and whatever the reasons for his magnetically attracting the laydeez (*cough* money, status, package *cough*)...the photo up above is an absolute classic! Look at the expression on that sucker's face. He looks like a sea monster - and in pastels, no less.

If Rod Stewart is 6"0 then Penny Lancaster is 6"3/4 -- with heels on around 6"4/5 -- which is just ridiculous. He can't be any shorter than 5"8, since he would be nearer to her shoulders. So somewhere in between 5-8 to 5-11, I'm gonna go with a realistic median value of 5"9. Crikey we need some mathematicians blood around here so as to measure proportions in photographs better - I think some of us are going a little nuts.
CelebHeights Editor said on 3/Dec/05
Penny Lancaster (his current partner) in 2004:
"My legs. They were measured on TV the other day and they're four feet long. I'm 6ft 1in, the same height as my brother. But it wasn't until I started modelling at 17 and put on my first pair of high heels that I felt comfortable with my height. Rod likes a long-legged girl, as everyone knows, and, no, he couldn't care less that I'm taller than him"

In defence of Palm Beach, McFly is wrong. Just because someone is a tax exile, doesn't mean they won't become a Knight of the Realm - Ever heard of Sir Sean Connery or Sir Roger Moore McFly. Both have been tax exiles for years, and have only been knighted in the last 8 years or so. I would also agree with Palm Beach that Rod is about 5'11.

I reckon Rod looks like he could be 6ft here, he's got atleast 4 inches on Elton,who's 5'8 and looks taller than Eva, who isn't short. The problem he has is his last 2 women in his life are both 6ft + and wear heels.

His current ladyfriend Penny Lancaster. Always gets listed as 6ft 1 in magazines etc and actually looks it. Nevertheless, Crawfords Agency only gives her 183cm.

His daughter, Kimberly Stewart said her height as '5ft 10' on an Aussie radio show. I don't even think she's that...

Stewarts not even 5,10 lol. More like 5,8 5,9 at a push. George best is 5,7 read it in the paper making rod only 5,8 5,9. He just doesnt look tall actually he looks short and that was before he went out with penny.

Ronnie, you are right. This guy is all over the place. I saw him in New York years ago, and he was taller than expected - I would say 5-10 is pretty close. Why people see him shorter or taller is a matter of whether he meets their expectations. If he is taller than expected, he gest seen as 6 foot. If he's shorter than expected, he gets pegged at 5-7.

How can there be so many varying heights for Rod? Surely it's hard to get someone who's a six footer mistaken for a 5'7 guy, and vice versa. Whats going on here. Is there any explanation for this?

From gossip group: "I've met Rod Stewart and he's about 5'8"...and all the times I've seen him he wasn't wearing elevator shoes. There's no way he's as short as 5'5".

Rod Stewart is certainly not shorter than 5'10. There are plenty of photographs in George Best's bio that show them in sneakers. Rod has at least 2 inches on 5'8/5'9 George.

Rod was in town a couple of weeks ago on tour. I work event security at the Arena the concert was in. I have the privelige of working with the stars head of security, so i get to work very closely with the stars. I was surprised at how tall Rod was. He is 6ft and maybe even 6'1 He had no heel to speak of on his shoe.

A friend of mine saw Rod Stewart today here in Stockolm. He works as a watchman in a fancy place and in walked Rod Stewart. He know that if he see a famous person he will stand so close so he can judge their height and then tell me about it:) He said that Mr Stewart was wearing boots, and with his boots he was 5'11''. He was as talI as my friend who is 5'10 and 5'11'' with normal shoes. Because Rod had theese big boots on IΒ΄m positive he is no more than 5'9''.

A guy I used to work with met Rod in the South of France a few years ago. He's about 6'0", and said he was surprised how tall Rod was. He said he was around the 6'0" mark, maybe taller

I saw hom at royal ascot, 5'7 and his women exaagerate their height to make him seem taller.
Parker said on 20/Feb/05
I think you are virtually spot on. I would put him at about 5'11. I am a big George Best fan and in a couple of his biographies he has photographs of himself standing next to Rod Stewart. George is officiaally listed at 175cm (5'9") on the Manchester United club site. In the photographs, Rod has at least 2 inches on him.
