🎢🎧🎸🎼 Happy Birthday Roger! 🎼🎸🎧🎢

A Very Happy 7️⃣7️⃣th Birthday to Pink Floyd singer, Roger Waters. Have a great and musical day. πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ XXX

6ft2 peak πŸ“€πŸ’Ώ
6ft05 now πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Sep/20
I love listening to Pink Floyd, but you can feel this great man's pain at losing his Dad to The War. He doesn't only sing about his own torment either.

I'm playing their album Echoes, which is a compilation of their music, right from the 60s. Some of it can be quite shocking, but empathetic at the same time. I played a lot of Floyd when my boyfriend died. The song Comfortably Numb was of particular significance.

Roger gets 6ft2 peak and 6ft and half-an-inch for today. 😁🎢

Now it's time for Roger's 'Amused To Death' album. πŸ˜ƒ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/May/20
On the way back from the Norfolk Coast yesterday, it was Pink Floyd all the way! We heard 'The Dark Side of the Moon' and 'Pink Floyd The Wall', and were both singing along. I'm listening to early Floyd right now, when Syd Barrett was doing the lead singing. The album is 'A Saucerful of Secrets' - and very trippy, as you can expect from music Syd Barrett had anything to do with!

Roger gets 6ft2 for yesteryear and 6ft1 for today. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

β€œJesus, Jesus - what’s it all about?”

I can’t think of a more appropriate line at this moment in time.

I wish for better times again.

I’m listening to β€œThe Final Cut”, in which Roger describes his disgust at World War 2. He lost his Dad in that and my Dad lost his eldest brother. All so sad, as are the times of today.

Peak - 6ft2
Today - 6ft1.25

The sons gotta be a good 6ft5 or so
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Feb/20
I just hit panic mode. I just thought that Nick Mason had passed on but it wasn't Nick from Pink Floyd, but another one. I grew suspicious when I read (via the Guardian) that this guy was in his early 80s. Still very sad of course, but I knew that the members of the Floyd aren't that old.

Roger gets 6ft0.25 for today's height and 6ft 1.75 peak.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/20
Still at it...

ALL Night!

This little person becomes a giant when she listens to the Floyd!

6ft2 peak and 6ft and three quarters of an inch for today.

PS I have brown and mild eyes! πŸ‘οΈπŸ‘οΈ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Dec/19
It's Christmas Day and I am singing along to 'Pink Floyd', 'The Final Cut'.

My Jim bought it for me for Christmas. I've never had it on DVD form; just on vinal. I bought it on the very pay day that I got paid after it was released.

It still hits the spot, I can tell you. Merry Christmas Roger Waters. My Jim and I sing along to your songs in the car!

We love you! XXX
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Dec/19
Thanks, Rob, for your verification!

When my friend Bert shaved his long beard off, my Mum thought that, not only did he look younger, but taller too. Standing next to me increased his perceived height as well, not that he needed it and he was a strong 6ft and I measured him in at 6ft1. That was before the days when I realized that you could genuinely vary that much in a day. I measured him in the morning and double checked: 6ft1.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/19
@ Rob - Hey, there's a point! ☝️

I think there's a possibility that a long gnome-like beard gives the illusion of shortening a man's height. πŸ˜•
Editor Rob
Beards of thickness under the chin I do think can effect perceived height, and also proportions. I saw a guy the other day from a distance who looked stocky and very average, then up close he was 5ft 11, including his beard his head size looked 1 foot, which from a fair distance seemed to effect his look.

🌟 I found out India Waters' height.🌟

According to her model agency, she is 5ft9.5. As well as being a fashionista come clothes horse, India is an actress.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Dec/19
Oh, that's fantastic, Rob! You've found a picture of Roger's sons!

Jack is clearly many inches taller than his Dad, but Harry is probably a flat 6ft.

What a fantastic find, Rob, and so very interesting to Roger's fans. As well as Jack and ZZ Top-bearded Harry, Roger has a daughter called India. It would be nice to find out her height, so I'll give it a try!


6ft2 peak;
6ft0.25 today.
Editor Rob
I had never realised the younger lad was very tall, he makes Roger look average there.

Of course in musical terms, Roger is immeasurable.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Nov/19
🦊 Correction Alert! 🦊

You probably didn't notice this minor detail, but I'm going ahead with the correction anyhow! πŸ˜‰

That was supposed to be plus a quarter- inch instead of a half-inch. I must have had Bert's shoplifting cat on my mind when I wrote that!

While still on the subject of stupid medics and chemists, plus numerical skills or lack thereof, take in this little lot:

Firstly, a doctor of mine couldn't work out what January plus six months is while writing me a sick note, thinking it was June! Her face looked like she'd been chewing on a cocktail of bitter lemons and wasps....

Then there was the time I popped into the chemist next to Bromley South Station to pick up my prescription. The dispenser, proud of never having taken a day's sick leave in his life, asked me in French, "Quel tempts fait-il?"

I replied in English that, as he could see, it was raining. He was flummoxed because he'd actually asked, "What time is it?"

I said, "Oh, no no no no! That's "'Quelle heure est-il?'"

Then he pretended to be pleasantly surprised but really he was seething and sweating!

I should have bought him a copy of 'French for Dummies' for Christmas!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Nov/19
I'd like to add another candidate to Roger's track 'Pigs'.

How about the ignorant chemist, who gave me half-strength painkillers and expected them all back this morning before giving me my full strength ones? What idiots! Of course I'm going to take them IN TWICE THE DOSE! Now my doctors want me down A&E in case I've overdosed. Pah! I might be only 5ft1 and weigh 98 and a quarter pounds, but I KNOW MY OWN LIMITS!

Roger, on the other hand, peaked at 6ft1.5, so I suppose the medical profession wouldn't have been quite so iffy about his possibility of overdosing. So that's what I'll give him for his peak height (+ a half-inch), and he can have 6ft0.5 for today's height.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/19
Talking about Pink Floyd, the album I'm listening to is called 'Echoes'. It's a double album, containing snippets of all their material. You can hear Roger's anger at having lost his Dad to the poxy War. Do you blame him? I bloody don't. πŸ‘
I recommend Roger's album 'Amused to Death'. I lent it to my boyfriend and he said, "You're not getting this back!"

Well, I bought him his own copy, and one for my Dad!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/19
@ Rampage Clover - I love Syd Barrett's contribution to Pink Floyd! He was a complete genius, fun-loving, tripped-out nutcase, in the nicest possible way! I met someone called Chris who knew him and Peter Green. His guitar-playing was amazing, so I wasn't at all surprised when he told me that he'd played with Fleetwood Mac when on Top of the Pops in 1968.

He also told me that, before Peter Green did his vanishing act, he painted everything in his parents' house green! πŸ‘΄πŸ§“πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ“—πŸβ™»οΈ

I'm listening to the Floyd right now. I'll go with 6ft2 for Roger's peak and 6ft0.25 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/19
Rob, do you think Syd Barrett was 5ft11 range?

Generally looked a couple of inches shorter than Waters
Editor Rob
I doubt he's far off it.

6'2 peak, 6' current
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Dec/18
I just read in a comment from Arch Stanton that Roger has a son pushing 6ft7. Well, I never knew that!


Today, Roger gets 6ft1.5 peak and 6ft for his today's height. I saw them perform 'The Wall' live in the Summer of 1980, and it was brilliant - of course! Roger was indeed the tallest.
Zaccaria said on 15/Dec/18
Brian May is taller than him.
In my opinion 6'0.5 was the peak (without shoes and boots). About 5'10.5" now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/18
Peak: 188cm
Today: 184cm
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Aug/18
@ Arch Stanton - I don't believe it! I think his way of bringing through his upset about losing his Dad in the War is poured out from the heart in 'Pink Floyd the Wall' and also his album 'Amused to Death'.

No doubt, a man of your intelligence will be aware of 'The Wall', but do listen to 'Amused to Death'.

He is doing a very constructive thing in relating to others the losses of war, not unlike Pete Townshend.

6ft2 peak and 6ft0.5 for now. I wish. I could meet him to verify the situation.... πŸ™ƒ
Sonnecker said on 6/Jun/18
Never saw him in thick shoes and in youth he had a bad posture... I saw hundreds of Waters' pics, and he's at least 188 cm, when not 189 cm....
Height loss? About 185 cm now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/18
His peak should at least be put back to 6ft2

May be necessary to add the equally important David Gilmour.

Maybe he lost height. I must admit he comes across as very arrogant and opinionated though, a nasty piece of work with an attitude. I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of him as I think he could be a bully!!

6ft2 peak, 6ft1 today more like
HonestSlovene said on 9/Jun/17
@Danimal He never was over 6'2" peak, now probably closer to 6'0" but as you said he is old so no suprise.
Brad said on 7/Jun/17
Shook his hand on sunday. He's dropped to 6' 1.5".
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jun/17
@Rob, authors have also claimed 6'2 and 6'3. Why do you believe the one who says 6'1? 6'1.5 peak seems too low, if anything I'd have leaned on 189. OK he wasn't 6'3 or 6'4 but he looked a decent 6'2 peak I thought.
Editor Rob: there was another commenter a few years ago who said Roger had given 6ft 1 in another article, so to me it seems that is what he is claiming.
Danimal said on 25/May/17
Rob, why isn't this page updated for a before and after? He might be 6'2" today, but he was easily 6'3"-6'4" in his younger days. The man is well into his 70's now and has clearly lost height, as most men his age do, especially the very tall ones (you can see it in his upper back and neck which have curved).
Asnjunxtown said on 7/Feb/17
Well, he surely was 6ft3 in his prime and he looked kinda thin.I imagine him being 70kg in his prime,and now around 80kg.
Naturally thin guy,just like myself
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/17
Roger isn't standing his tallest there but the son does look near 6ft7…
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/17
Click Here I think his son has on flatter shoes too! Has to be a good 6'7 surely!
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/17
Click Here That one's even worse though his posture is poorer, but he might actually be near 6 ft 7 don't you think?
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/17
@Rob, how tall does his son look on the left? Click Here Like 6'6.5 or something? He has Brosnan son syndrome ;-)
Editor Rob: unless Roger had worse posture he looks a comfortable 6ft 6 range.
Mikhail said on 13/Dec/16
6ft4 in his prime?Really?His proportions would have been kinda small for a 6ft4 dude back in the day..
No more than 6ft3 in his youth.
Sonnecker said on 12/Dec/16
About 190 cm in his youth, very probably for Sir Roger....
187/188 cm now, so I agree with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/16
Still looks about this mark today
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Nov/16
@ demy - Hi! I'm thinking back to the picture of all 4 of them on the inside sleeve of the album 'Meddle' and I remember that they were impressively muscle-bound, each and every one, including Waters! I wouldn't exactly describe him as skinny-looking in that picture!
But I do see what you mean when he stood up! Very tall and gangly, it must have been difficult to maintain a healthy weight with a rock'n'roll lifestyle!
Waters is responsible for creating some of the best music and lyrics ever, both with Pink Floyd and on his own. I recommend his solo album 'Amused to Death.'
I knew he was tall, but not quite THAT tall! Too busy listening to his lyrics to speculate on anything other than what is going on in his mind! A brilliant and addictive brand of music; I never, ever tire of it!
radu said on 6/Nov/16
6ft4 is way too much even for waters .6ft3 - young
6ft1 - 6ft2 - now
and for david
6ft - young
5ft11 - now
Danimal said on 5/Nov/16
This must be updated for before and after. He was easily 6'3", if not 6'4" in his youth. The man is 73 today and appears to be about 6'2" today.
demy said on 30/Oct/16
Waters was a skinny guy.He could have been the same height as gilmour,who was a bit chubby.Skinny guys always looks taller by 2 inches.
tk said on 24/Oct/16
I guess this needs to be split in peak and current height.

Back then, I would say 6'3'', today no more than 6'2''.
Sanj said on 15/Sep/16
Compare Waters with Clapton in this pic from a charity cricket match recently. He is wearing sneakers, and looks very tall. Click Here
Dingus said on 19/Jul/16
Based on pictures I've seen of the band I would estimate their heights as

Roger Waters: 6'02.50" - 6'03.00" (He is probably 6'02.00" even these days)

David Gilmour: 6'00.00" - 6'00.25" (About the same today maybe .25 inches shorter.

Nick Mason: 5'11.75" - 6'00.00" (Around 5'11.00" nowadays)

Richard Wright: 5'11.50" - 5'11.75"(Passed away around 5'11.00")

I can't make a proper assessment on Syd.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/16
I'd definitely rule out both 6ft1 and 6ft4 for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/16
A bit over this at peak, Rob?
Editor Rob: he's always been a guy you could argue can look over a wider range, so I wouldn't dismiss the idea of a fraction more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/16
He could vary
Mathew said on 31/Jan/15
I thought he was almost 6'3".
New waver said on 21/Dec/14
Waters was nearly 6'4" in his youth. He was extremely tall, skinny, and he also -- like so many tall rockets -- tended to slouch when around the other band members. Waters towered over Syd and Gilmour in the old days (Gilmour was around 6'0" in his younger days)
Nick said on 4/Dec/14
Rob, could we get a listing for Gilmour, Wright or Mason? I'd be interested to see what you'd make of their current and peak height.
Sam said on 11/Aug/14
Gilmour's closer to the camera, the difference even today can look at least 2 inches between Waters and Gilmour.
Guy said on 14/Jun/14
Click Here looks about 184 here with 180 David Gilmour

In a music magazine I read 1,91 or 1,92.

yeah never seemed a whole lot taller than 5'11ish David Gilmore. 6'1.5 might be a better call
Pat C said on 28/Dec/13
I have met Bob Plant and he is pretty tall - at least 6ft!
truth said on 14/Sep/13
lol was? He still IS. Saw him on a concert in Split. Very tall and lanky, 6ft2 to 6ft3.
Sam said on 14/May/13
I agree. I think Plant never exceeded six foot in his barefeet. Hendrix could look lanky with long legs and big hands, it was kind of a shock to know like Lennon, McCartney, all of the Stones, Jim Morrison, etc. he was average height. My favorite guy of all time, Bob Dylan, is even shorter, Lennon looked lanky and big-boned next to Dylan. Waters literally towers above the rest because he was one of the few rock god-types to actually stand more than six feet tall.
Shaun said on 13/Sep/12
JustMyOpinion says on 13/Jun/12
In my opinion people tend to overestimate the heights of the legendary rock and roll stars in a lot of cases because: 1) the media tended to do so 2) their larger than life personality/legacies make them seem tall 3)cuban heels.

True. First time I saw Hendrix Woodstock DVD for some reason I thought he was 6'3" range! His legs looked lanky in those flares.

I think, based on nothing but photographs and such, that John Lennon, Jim Morrison and Paul McCartney were all within the 176-180cm out of bed range in their heyday, and honestly I think Gilmour was on the shorter end of that range. Robert Plant was probably about 178-182cm out of bed and Waters probably about 184-188cm.

A lot of men tend to overestimate and/or lie to themselves about their height-- my whole life my dad told me he was 5'11" until I found some measurements of him which placed him at 175cm even(probably mid-day), or a hair under 5'9". The strange thing is I went on believing up until that point that he could well be an inch and a half or so taller than me.

Even I refer to myself as 5'10" more often than not when in reality at the end of the day I only stand 175.5cm, or 177cm out of bed.
Jeoffrey said on 11/Feb/12
Yeah, Plant seems to be about 5-11ish (used to look taller being skinny w/ boots), maybe approaching 6 ft max in his hey-day.
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11

Mmm, he's shorter than Robert Plant though. Is Plant really as low as 5'11"? I had him between 6' and 6'1".
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11
Gilmour is around 5'11". His son looks absolutely nothing like him and yes his son does look 6'3"-6'4" range. But his mother is tallish with dark coloring.
Gareth said on 26/Nov/11
Gilmoure 6 foot? LOL. Guess his son is 6'4 then. Click Here

Lou Gubrius said on 13/Nov/11
Right, Gilmore is 5-11 max, and Roger hasn't seemed to have more than 2 inches on him last times they stood together.

6'2" looks about right. Gilmour always looks 5'11" range.

All I know is David Gilmour is 6'0 and Roger looks three inches taller than Gilmour, and in the interview with Conan look almost the same height. He is 6'3.
Sugar Bear Blanks said on 21/Jul/11
Was reading thru a special Pink Floyd issue of a music mag last night, and stumbled across an interesting picture of an article from I believe Melody Maker from the late 60s where it lists all kinds of personal info about bands (stats, bio questions, interests, etc.), and Roger self reported his height there as 6-1.
roger said on 14/Mar/11
in the picture where roger seems to be 6"1 besides conan, take a look to glasses on the table, the same glass looks bigger than other set in unfavourable angle. Roger is at least 185cm, max 188-189.

not at all....Roger is 5"11 max...he looks the same height as John McEnroe and looks about 4 inches shorter than Conan.
Shaun said on 11/Mar/11
Yeah I think 6 ft 2 is more likely now. He might have been 190 in his prime though. Dunno what was with the 6 ft 4 claims. He never looked that tall. Lanky frame but not over 6'3". He did look around 6'2" actually on Conan's show when he stood next to him in sneakers. The photo below though really makes him look 6'0.5"-6'1"!!! Its the Conan effect. Sometimes I swear that guy can look 6 ft 6 like he did with Dolph Lundgren too..
Shaun said on 10/Mar/11
Click Here

Roger Waters is most often listed as 6'3" or 6'4". Compare how he looks to Conan to Brien Rob. There is no way he is 191cm!!!!!! He looks 3.5-4 inches shorter!!!!!

[Editor Rob: there was a photo beside that of mcenroe/waters so maybe the 6ft 2 description for Roger, out of the 3, is nearer the truth afterall.]
TallGuy said on 27/Feb/11
Waters looked a little taller than Andy Richter, who is around 6'1", so I would say 6'1.5" max for Waters, 6'2.5" peak.
Shaun said on 26/Feb/11
Looks 190 MAX. I'd say 6'2.5"
Anonymous said on 29/Dec/10
When roger have met conan was wearing sneakers, so 6-2 should be definitely.
Martini N. Rossi said on 19/Dec/10
Tallguy, yeah I was one of the doubters who had been saying 6-1 max of late but he certainly looked a litle taller than I expected in the brief moment greeting Conan, I would wager on 6-2 and change after seeing that.
TallGuy said on 16/Dec/10
Looked taller than Andy Richter but shorter than Conan on the show last night, so 6'3" is possible. Though Richter's height is not listed on this site.
Brad said on 23/Nov/10
Straight up an hour ago 6' 3".
Drenter said on 16/Mar/09
I think he's about 188cm now, but when he was young he was at least 190 cm. In some photos he towers over Syd and the others.

Anyway Barrett is 180cm, not 178. I read it on a lot of magazines and books about Pink Floyd.

P.S. If there's a page about Waters, I think that also Syd Barret deserves a page about his height. Just a legend IMO.
The Truth said on 14/Mar/09
Roger Waters's real height:
185-186 cm at his "peak"
183-184 cm nowadays, due to a very bad posture.
So Roger Waters's height IS 6'1" approximately...
No way he's 6'3"...maybe with heels in the seventies...
However Chistopher Lee almost towered him in some recent photos, and he's 193-195 cm at his peak (and now he have a very bad posture too, due to his old age)

Finally, in my opinion:
Roger Waters 185 cm
David Gilmour 177 cm
Nick Mason 174 cm
Rick Wright 176 cm
Syd Barrett 178 cm (?)
monique said on 12/Feb/09
I dunno...I don't think pictures are that accurate a way of determining people's exact heights. It sometimes depends on the angle, where people are standing, etc.

Anyway, Roger definitely looks shorter than he used to be. And he does have odd posture - usually looks a bit hunched over to me, even as a young man.

i see this guy what almost seems weekly now.can look 6-2 sure he is taller in reality.
robin said on 1/Sep/08
Yeah, back in the day Roger was noticeably taller than Dave and Syd, who were around 6 ft. I'd say he used to be about 6'4''. He's possibly lost an inch or 2 with age now, so the listed 6'3'' seems pretty accurate to me.
Michelle said on 19/Aug/08
I would've guessed 6'4'', in his prime at least, maybe not now. He always looked really tall on camera, and he towered over Syd when he stood up straight.

He looked around 6'2 or 6'3 when I saw him in concert last night. I was far but I could judge well enough. Tall guy still, and still very lanky. Gilmour's packed on the pounds over the years.

From what I gather, Wright was 5'11" back then, Gilmour 6' even? If that's so, Waters was probably 6'3".

An italian journalist said 1,92 about Waters.

When you have a chance checkout the new P.F. book by Nick Mason, veddy intewesting pic of the Floy'd gang playing "football" and Roger is suprisingly not too far above heighthwise then everbody else - looks maybe 6-1 in the team pic. don't have page #, but intrewsting book worth checking out. Other pics seem to bare out this claim.
Tom T. said on 14/Nov/06
Yeah, from the Live 8 concert last year during the bows, he looked at most maybe two or three inches taller than 5-10-plush-ish Dave Gilmour.
Glenn said on 13/Nov/06
Yeah,I never understood that 6-3,6-4 stuff.maybe in his youth.he is around 6-2 now.
Tom T. said on 13/Nov/06
Used to think he was 6-3 or 6-4 but 6-2 or slightly less seems much more plausible from examining all the photographic evidence now.
Glenn said on 3/Nov/06
Possibly.always seemed 6-2 to me.
Anthony said on 2/Nov/06
6'4 peak IMO. Roger always looked very tall. And slim
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
and they'd if it was a person, they'd be referring to Pink. Bob Geldof is a tall guy also and is 6'1" at least!

Very funny, Alex. But when Roger sang that phrase he meant if the wall needed to be so high (mother did it need to be so high?). The wall her mother built around him to protect Roger (his father died in the WW II before he was born). Sad story. In the Final cut Roger deepens into that subject.

Remember "Mother did i need to be so high?"...
Gonzalo said on 1/Sep/06
I think in many Pink FLoyd pictures he must be slouching because he doesnΒ΄t look much taller than the other members, who are around 5Β΄11. A 6`4 guy will dwarf those guys. I think he must be around 6`2.
Mr. T said on 17/Aug/06
He does have a very long head that would fit a 6'4" guy (reminds me of James Cromwell). Glenn said 6'2", but he does have weird posture that's not immediately noticable, especially involving his neck. I'll buy 6'3" completely straightened out now.

hes 6-4 no less may have been 6=5 while with floyd, no doubt ive met him
Mr. T said on 14/Mar/06
That Piper-era line up photo does seem rather revealing, but Waters always looked like a lanky 6'4" guy in most photos from Floyd's peak, at least to me. Hmm...could have Barrett been well over 6' himself? Plus taking hair into account...

Waters comes across as potentially 6'4" there, but seems like Barrett is in a bad position.

Plus their Live 8 photo from last year:

Waters looks no more than 6'1" or 6'2" there if Wright was indeed 5'11" at his peak.

Damn, this group is really hard to pin down, especially for such a famous one. But I'm starting to go with Glenn on going down to 6'2", though I'll need to find better pictures before agreeing entirely.

here you go,

syd barrett who's second from right is 6' and i guess roger is like 6'1.5
dsf said on 6/Mar/06
how tall was syd barrett? i remeber waters looked maybe just one inch taller than syd barrett. i'm thinking syd was easily 6 feet tall so roger was closer to like 6'1 if this is the case
Gg said on 20/Feb/06
I really need pink floyd member heights, if someone knows exactly pleasy tell me
Glenn said on 18/Feb/06
I thought 6-2.
mr. t said on 16/Feb/06
I've read 5'11" for Wright. As I've said before though, I can't really find a good picture with the whole group standing up straight on the same terrain, but if 6'4" for Waters and 5'11" for Wright are correct, I'd gather very roughly that Gilmour is 6'1-ish and Mason at being maybe 5'10"-5'11". I'm really not completely sure, though.
Anonymous said on 13/Feb/06
I definitely look 6'4" in his younger years. David Gilmour and Syd Barrett are 5'11", Nick Mason is 5'9" and Rick Wright is 5'10". He was standing at least 4 inches taller than them so he's got to be taller than 6'2".
Viper652 said on 13/Feb/06
I thought he was taller then 6-3, at least 6-4.
Anonymous said on 12/Feb/06
I think he's an average sized guy with a very long face that turns him into a 6'4'' dude.
Anonymous said on 12/Feb/06
Although, how does Roger appear so much taller than Glenn in this photo, yet he only appears an inch or two taller than Clapton in some photos? But, Glenn says that Clapton is only about 5'9.5 max? Again, doesn't add up right. Waters' posture isn't that bad is it?
Anonymous said on 12/Feb/06
Something doesn't make sense if Roger is between 6ft2 and 6ft4 if we are to believe Glenn about Clapton (from the Clapton page):
"Glenn says on 28/Jan/06 [about Eric Clapton]
I've seen the guy 30 times.and have photo proof.5-9 and half tops.look at the cover to the blind faith cd.the cover where the group is on.not the rare original.clapton looks 5-7 to 5-9 next to ginger baker who I believe is 6-2."

Clapton played guitar on Roger's 1984 tour as well as a few other occasions and Roger doesn't really look much taller in photos next to Clapton. If Clapton really only is the "5-9 and half tops" that Glenn claims, then how can Waters be in the 6'3 range? Something doesn't add up then.

I have heard somwhere that Rick Wright (also from Pink Floyd) is 5'11". When Roger and Rick stands beside each other, you can clearly see that Roger is 4-5 inches taller! I guess around 6'3-6'4.

Bad posture here. Could be very tall.
