He looked 5'10.5 range in these photos.

His hair kind of blended into the background the first time I saw the photos, so I just assumed he was bald with a very small forehead. I realized the mistake when I saw the average guess lol

5'9" is way too low. 5'11" isn't that far off, though I'd have said more 5'10.5" with Rob and 5'10"-5'10.25" with Jenny.

Pffft...I see about 5ft9 on a good day

Rob, could he have lost height?
Editor Rob
maybe a bit of height, but he still was over 5ft 10 then.
Bobby said on 21/Jul/17
This guy looks a minimum of 5'9 next to you, not a staggering 5'11.
Editor Rob
he really was, up close somebody who looked that 5ft 11 range.

Wow I knew you were wearing those 1.41 inch Shox shoes in this picture but dang that is a huge boost if this guy really is 180 cm tall. He must be wearing converse though for you to look like your 176-177 cm next to him.
Editor Rob
I think it was 1-inch shoe

@ChistmataX: lol, 177cm? You haven't paid any attention to the fact he's leaning considerably in the picture, have you? Do you really think Rob would overestimate the height of a man he stood next to in the flesh by a full 1.5-2 inches? 5'11 is acceptable.
ChiasmataX said on 23/Dec/11
176-177cm at most. This is one of the more inflated height on this site. He's obviously clear as day not 5'11 or 180.34cm.

no more than 5ft9.5. anything above that is a joke even with his squashed neck.
Ian said on 3/Jan/09
Is he slouching or is that just a slight bent neck he has there because his body look straight. Rob certainly isn't standing very straight either though he has his shoulders forward in a slight relaxed posture himself. If you want to stand taller it's head up, neck straight and shoulders back, feet together. It does actually work.

Guys, he's obviously slouching with Rob, if he is looking taller with 5'8.5 Jenny and looking shorter with only 5'8 Rob, do the math.
T.J. said on 21/Dec/08
he only looks an inch or two taller than rob, kinda how meat loaf only looks two inches taller than glenn. u give this guy 5'11, but you won't give 5'11 to meat loaf?
Ian said on 21/Dec/08
The Horse of FUNK if he was 5ft 11 and he lost 1-2 cm that means he's 5ft10. He slouching because he can't go straight because of age that means he isn't 5ft11 because he can't stretch out due to back problems maybe. Are you talking about someones height here are what someones height could be if you stretch them out fully? Sorry I just don't see 5ft 11. I saw 5ft 11 on another guy that Rob put at 5ft 10.5 but I was told no he's 5ft 10.5 He was bigger than this guy by far. I'm not wrong here. This is another one were Rob is taller than his 5ft8 he claims, again he is taller than 5ft8.5 Jenny who has been down graded by 0.25 what has she shrunk. She was a clear 5ft8.5 before now shes 5f8.25-0.5 which is it? now I know people shrink but this is getting a bit stupid. We all shrink. Rob looks like he has grown. There is no way this guy is around my height. Either Rob is taller than he claims. I just don't get it.

Editor Rob
he's a bit loose in posture.

I've told people a while ago that I done a lot of measurements of ourselves on the stadiometer over the last few months and Jenny can range anywhere in the timefram 2pm - 10pm from 5ft 8.25 up to 5ft 8.5.

sometimes photos might not reveal things, and sometimes they are headscratching without an explanation.

I'm going to put a photo with an actor tommorrow, and if I didn't offer an explanation about the double shot - the single shots are fine - you'd be scratching your head!!

I don't see 5'11" there.
The Horse of FUNK said on 20/Dec/08
Yes way, Ian. The guy's old so he's probably lost a bit in the vertical department. To top this 'Yes Way' sundae off, he's slouching with both of them.

I'd say he was 180cm, or 5'10.75" - 5'11", for most of his days and now, at 60+ years of age, he's probably lost 1-2cm.
Ian said on 20/Dec/08
No way 5ft 11 Rob. That's funny. Looks about 5ft9.5
Brian said on 20/Jul/07
He and Max Gail were/are both 5'10".
Mr. R said on 10/Jun/07
I saw him at a cafe in Hollywood with a child I assume to be his grandson. He is about 5-10 at this point.

Editor Rob
I've got a photo with Ron. He was at a wee event in glasgow earlier this year and I seen him a few times, I still think if he stands properly he's near 5ft 11
