Rob.............R McGuinn can not be 6 ft 2. Because at the B Dylan 1992 rehearsal he is next to G Harrison who at most was 5ft 10 1/2 at his peak. McGuinn is wearing what looks like almost 2 inch heel boots and only looks at most 1.5 to 2 inches taller than him. I would say he is really 5 ' 11" at most.
He could be in 6ft 1 range.

Mr. R McGuinn from the photos I have seen, have wearing "Boots". I would guess a solid 6 ft., at the most.

I've known him for 30 years. He listed his height as 6 feet tall in 1965. He is now a bit shorter than me, making him roughly 5 feet 9 inches.

He is 5ft 11 in every Byrds book I've read.

Here's a shot of McGuinn & the Byrds playing with a young Bob Dylan and I doubt he's 6'2" unless Dylan is his self-reported 5'10", LOL.
I think McGuinn was more six feet tops, maybe near 6'2" in big Cuban heels at his peak.

He is 5ft11. He was three inches smaller than Michael Clarke, who towered over him and the other band members.

Roger McGuinn stands 5'11...both Chris Hillman and David Crosby stand about 5'8" and Gene Clark was 5'11...the tallest in the orginal group was Michael Clarke at 6'2"...C'mon folks...

He was always the tallest member of The Byrds. Only Gene Clark looked a little taller, then he left and Roger became the tallest member. Also Michael Clarke looked tall.

I played a show opening for Mr. McGuinn several years ago, but I don't remember him being that tall. I'm 5'8", and I might have remembered him being 6 inches taller than me. But maybe my memory is fading....
