Hey, it's Roger's big 7️⃣0️⃣ today. Wishing him a very happy day!

5ft9.75 peak;
5ft8.75 now.

I have to chuckle a bit because at one time Roger listed himself at 179 cm. I think 178 (5'10") was even pushing it. But I don't blame him - he was one of the shortest kids in his class - so to fudge on the height a bit as an adult I totally get that. Roger is just so beautiful inside and out.

I have just seen a picture of Roger, Brian May and Paul Rodgers. It really messed with my head! I thought Paul Rodgers was taller!

I go for 5ft10.25 for Roger's peak and 5ft9.25 nowadays. The trouble with drummers is that they're always sitting down! πŸ₯πŸ˜πŸ‘

Roger has an excellent singing voice and sang lead on a few tracks of theirs.

Oh my! Doesn't Roger's soprano singing voice complement Freddie's slightly deeper tones? What a marvellous combination!

@ John Leno - If that was aimed at me, then thank you! The first Queen song was 'Keep Yourself Alive' from 1973 and I remember that too. It was written by Brian May.

He wasn't on here, though there are many I think similar to him who may still be given a page. It's never too late...

I think Roger was 175 peak, overlisted in my opinion but okay. Nowadays it doesn’t look like he’s shrunk much but he might have a little boost in his shoes.

Roger has been part of my musical life since I was 13 and I became instantly hooked on 'Killer Queen'. I acquired all their albums up to and including 'Jazz', but when 'Innuendo' came out, I squealed "They're back to their best again!" bought it, and promptly had it stolen! 😝

Come the year 2005, I was staying round my Dad's and realised that absolutely everything they ever did was BRILLIANT! He had all their 'best of' music that I hadn't bothered to buy, but I love it now!

Queen were such a knock-out of a band. Their videos were unfailingly different each time, often side-splittingly funny, but always original. Roger himself was the 'heart-throb' type, who always seemed to get the model girlfriends. He was training to be a dentist, but he 'hated it', and that's a quotation from one of my teenage magazines! I wouldn't like to gape into people's mouths for a living either, excellent and necessary job that it is!

Yes, at the time 'Bohemian Rhapsody' came out, during the Christmas of 1975, our own headmaster talked about Queen one morning in our Assembly. He took his hat off to each and every member, all having studied at other professions, but, fortunately for us, turning their backs on their careers, forming the group Queen and knocking us sideways! Already a staunch Queen fan, I couldn't think of a better band for a headmaster to discuss with his kids as an inspirational influence.

All of the four members wrote fantastic songs in their own right and they all stood out as taller than they actually were because they were lean as whippets! For Roger to have been 133 pounds at 5ft10 is extremely underweight, Brian, Freddie and John, the 'quiet one' and bass guitarist, were equally thin. Personally, I thought Freddie was nearly 6ft and Brian 6ft4, the second statistic being one that I actually read. Being the drummer - with a terrific soprano voice - Roger sat down much of the time, but in their videos, you could take in that he was 'tall average' height, probably around 5ft9.5/10. I haven't seen him pictured very often lately, but there is a picture right here, denoting that he isn't THAT much smaller than Brian, who must today be around the 6ft+ mark.

I agree with 5ft8.5 for Roger nowadays and Brian, still a keen astronomer, I'd say is 6ft1 or just under. For Roger's peak, he gets 5ft9.75.

Thanks, Rob, for giving Roger a page!

From all I've seen, I'd have said Roger might have measured taller than Freddie. He typically seemed around 4 inches or so shorter than May, well as much as you can tell because May has always had a tremendous amount of hair.
