Bach is 6'3". I've never met him, but know quite a few who have. He's slouching, but here he is with Jeff Pilson: Click Here
Pilson claims 5'9.5", but that's a stretch. I'd say no more than 5'9" and I don't see Bach more than maybe 7" taller. 177-178 cm George Lynch is consistently taller than him. Lynch may have been as tall as 5'10.5" peak, but Pilson was pretty consistently shorter back then and Lynch always slouches in photos. You can also compare Pilson to Dick Clark back in 1985 or Mark Wahlberg in Rock Star. He was a bit taller than both. He was always the shortest member of Dokken.
As for Skid Row, the LPs with Bach were quite good, better than a lot of bands getting signed at that time. One of those EPs they did a few years back without Bach was actually pretty good, though.

Used to have a fantastic voice, it's a bit shot now. But Bach without Skid Row is better than Skid Row without Bach! 191 cm in my book. I'd lean towards the 3.25 but 3 is okay.
Matthew Robinson said on 14/Jun/17
Bach has claimed 6'5" and 6'3", he's also claimed 6'4" a lot too - I think if there are any 6'3" guys who may be on the bubble to consider listing at 3.25 Bach could be one.

@Rampage: yup! You know how it goes 6'3" range guys claiming 6'5" lol! Ahhh can't get enough of it. Then look someone taller dead in the eye and try to get them to lie or convince them they're lying when they are telling the truth! That is of course until you offer to get measuring tape of some sort!

6ft5 is extreme but 6ft3-3½ zone is arguable
BillisaLefty said on 5/Jun/17
With Duff he looks exactly 6'3''. With James Hetfield, he looks 6'2'', and with Andy Biersack, he looks 6'2''. His 6'5'' claim seems unlikely, so I'm guessing his 6'3'' claim later is closer. I'm pretty sure he can be pegged at 74.75 - 75.5.

Rob, are you sure on 6ft 3 flat? The majority seems to agree that he is in that 6ft 3 range. Why would a 190cm guy claim 6ft 5? That doesn't make any sense. I've been looking at videos of him a lot and he looks a strong 6ft 3, weak 6ft 4 almost all the time.
Editor Rob: not looked at bach for a while, last time I did, I still felt around 6ft 3 range.
Matthew Robinson said on 19/Apr/17
Solidly 6'3". You could make a case for him being listed at 6'3.25", I wouldn't argue against it.
Willes188 said on 5/Apr/17
Yes 6'3 is too low for Bach, I'm 100% sure after looking at some YouTube videos. He is closer to 6'4.
Greg said on 27/Feb/17
When he was arrested for the bottle throwing/jumping into the crowd incident, his mugshot showed him to be a tiny bit under 6' 3". This would make him around 6' 2" or possibly even a little shorter, depending on the type of shoes he was wearing at the time.
Willes189 said on 9/Jan/17
He could very well be 6'3.5, he looks like a strong 6'3 range guy when looking closer
Stacy said on 7/Dec/16
He looks like he is really tall, well it is hard to tell from looking at his pictures, but he looks pretty tall!
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 22/Nov/16
He's claimed 6'3", 6'4", and 6'5". Rare you'll find someone who's claims straight from their own mouth vary that much. Anyways, I think he's 6'3", possibly between 6'3" and 6'4" but I don't believe he's 6'4"+ barefoot.
Powerhouse said on 7/Nov/16
I know a guy who plays in a rock band and he got to met Sebastian and posted a picture on facebook with him , the guy i know is 6'0 range and Sebastian is quite a bit taller, i'd say he is closer to 6'4, i dont think he is a flat 6'3. Also was watching a video of him on Conan and when Conan got up to shake his hand they were nearly identical height.
Paleman said on 5/Nov/16
He does appear massive on the Skid Row album cover. Most of the time he does appear super tall, but I don't think he's over 6'3" in reality. Certainly doesn't look it when standing next to James Hetfield or Duff McKagan.
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/16
Right! I take that all back!!
I had no idea that you weren't very keen on your height! I 'm so sorry! Because I cannot identify with the situation, please, yes pretty please, forgive me. You are clearly a beautiful person and I am about to join your fanship!
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Oct/16
What on Earth...? How can someone suddenly sprout up to 6ft5 from 6ft3? 6ft3 is not a measly height by any stretch of the imagination! This guy should be very happy to be so tall AND a rock star!
It's true what you say, Rob! Tell the truth about your height and people will take you seriously! I don't think I'll ever be able to take Sebastian Bach seriously again!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Oct/16
He's a very lanky guy...probably could get mistaken for 6ft4-5 range. But 6ft3 is the truth
said on 23/Aug/16
Sebastian gives 6'3 ish guys like myself a good image. One Direction and Justin Bieber (to name a few) would never handle to be this height, they would be awkward and clumsy looking to say the least. And i don't think that they would have there current fame to be honest.
I'm straight, but there's something about a young Bach that makes me think twice Click Here
Oanh said on 20/Aug/16
6'3" is legit...nothing more.
John said on 6/Aug/16
Always looked 6' 3 and claimed so himself
said on 18/Jul/16
Rob you know, he says also " I'm like 6'3 " and he looks a strong 6'3 guy, so is possible 6'3.5 ? Duff is about 6'3!
Editor Rob: his height can certainly vary, and his footwear might make him seem taller at times. I don't know if 6ft 3.5 is right though.
Pucko said on 10/Jul/16
Very good voice, also very tall, i'd say 6'3 range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/16
He looks taller than Conan!

Definitely nothing under this listing with Conan 16 years ago Click Here

Rob,How tall is Duff Mckagan?
[Editor Rob: can look at times close to 6ft 2]
said on 7/Nov/14
Another pic (better angle) of 6'3" Duff McKagan and Sebastian:
Sebastian is again in bad posture and still looks taller.

Sebastian with 6'3" Duff McKagan in 2013: Click Here
Sebastian's posture is getting worse by the year.
said on 7/Nov/14
Claimed 6'4" on That Metal Show in 2012/2013, but looking 6'3" next to 6'2" Adam Carolla: Click Here
Here's Adam with 6'6"-6'7" Penn Gilette: Click Here
Imo, he could have been close to 6'4" 20-25 years ago, but is a flat 6'3" today (his posture isn't what it used to be).
Brad said on 3/Apr/14
As listed. Don't see Skid Row without him.
I know I'm banned said on 23/Feb/14
He claimed to be 6'4" last year on That Metal Show.
Cliff said on 3/Nov/13
I can remember reading he was 6' 7". He is one hell of a singer.
Sword said on 19/Apr/13
He looks about "only" 6'1 in the pictures near 5'8.5 (maybe 5'8?) Axl Rose.
Mathew said on 11/Oct/12
He was listed as 6'3" on celebrity fit club. I wonder if they measure the contestants on that show?
Mathew said on 13/Aug/12
I'd say he legitimately looks 6'7" on the Skid Row album cover. 6'3" he is.
said on 4/Aug/12
Legitimate 6'3". He's very tall, but not 6'5". Although he could pass as 6'9" on the album cover: Click Here
Mathew said on 4/Jul/11
6'3" is right, 6'5" is bogus.
said on 28/Mar/11
Im guessing 6' 2 1/2" I saw him in a youtube video for The Trailer Park Boys Live, John paul tremblay and Robb Wells are both 6'0"- 6'0.5", sebastian looked probably 2 or so inches taller then them, I believe he was wearing normal sneakers as well.
Sebastian can be seen at about 22 1/2 minutes into this performance:

I have met Bas on several occasions. As I am six feet tall myself in flat feet - I can tell you that in his boots, which add approx. two inches, Bas stands six inches taller than me. If I have to look up at a guy, it's impressive. And yes, I am female. He's tall. Very tall. And very kind.
krazy krippled! said on 1/Jan/11
I saw him recently in a Guns N' Roses show, he's definitely 6'3 at least, he overtowered everybody else on that stage, even with big lifts, the guy is really tall.
Matt said on 18/Dec/10
Lawl I was about to comment on the fact that Bach is most likely to be an exaggerater and he could be under 6' 3'', then I find out hes claimed 6' 5''...I still believe he may be exaggerating rofl
Anonymous said on 10/Dec/10
I heard D Snyder say in an interview that Sebastian had all the ladies because he had great hair and was like 6'5"
Anonymous said on 17/Aug/07
In "Gilmore Girls" he really looked tall, especially standing next to that Korean girl, whatevershername. So he may be 6'4 or 6'5, as I've seen on him.
Mike said on 23/Jun/07
baz rocks. he definitely is very tall. I met him awhile back after a solo show.
oh, and Ratts back with pearcy actually! im seeing them next week.
Anonymous said on 6/Jun/07
he lives in my town, lincroft,nj. he's like 6'3 1/2 or maybe 6'4 and change.
Mark D. said on 20/Mar/07
He's an inch shorter than Ted Nugent in that TV show they
were on. He also did an interview w/ Adam Curry, who's my
height, 6'4 1/2", and Adam was clearly that much taller.
Marcello said on 21/Dec/06
He played once in L.A. with Axl, Slash and Duff McKagan and He is taller than Duff, who is 6' 3''. He seems 6'5'' to me.
REds said on 25/Oct/06
Have you met Ville lahiala lead singer from sentenced ? , now in tour with a new band call poisonblack.
How tall is he ?
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
Skid Row now,sucks.I saw Peacys RATT and RATT without pearcy.both kicked ass.
Brad said on 15/Aug/06
Same height as me. Really hunches over. Hates his height, like I do. Kinda bloated compared to his Skid Row days. Anybody see Skid Row nowadays? Eeecchh. Who sees Ratt without Pearcy? Whatta waste of coin.
Glenn said on 23/Jun/06
Geez,I hope im not boring you with the contributions! ; -)
Glenn said on 22/Jun/06
Rob-you put up every pic? there was another Bach and what about Silverstone?
[Editor Rob: ah, I had forgotten that one was in the same scan, I have now added that other pic to bach's page aswell...I was holding back alicia, but I shall add her soon then and Anna Faris too...and other blonde women, the partner of bobby flay. I haven't forgotten, also that carmen one where she's on her own, that too...
Pierre said on 21/Jun/06
This is a case where the guy is fibbing about his height. I've met Bach a few times in NYC, where I waiter at bread in tribeca. He comes in a lot, usually around lunch. I'm 5''11 barefoot and really think that he's at the very least 6''6. But he always wears heel shoes, feminine ones.
TNTinCA said on 31/May/06
Actually had the pleasure of meeting him once at the Toronto Skydome. Surprisingly nice and quite articulate. And yes, seemed pretty tall to me. I would have guessed 6'4".
Glenn said on 31/May/06
Guns&roses after party.havnt seen him since 2000.sweet guy.
Editor Rob said on 31/May/06
Glenn, what event was this pic taken? You see him a lot?
Glenn said on 11/May/06
Yeah,I bet my life on it.6-3.
Anonymous said on 11/May/06
I’ve read Sebastian Bach say he’s 6’4, 6’5 and 6’6. I’ve met him and he’s around 6’5 but I can be sure because I wasn’t close to him.
said on 30/Apr/06
Sebastian Bach confirms his height: Click Here
"I'm like 6-foot-3 [inches]."
(Intrestingly enough, he's still listed as 6'6" on some sites)
[Editor Rob: nice, it would not surprise me if this guy has one time said 6ft 6!]
UNK said on 26/Apr/06
He's on "The Gilmore Girls" WB show in the US. Doesn't look 6'5" at all... this 6'3.5" listing is much closer. He's pretty funny on that show... i was surprised.
J. said on 26/Apr/06
He used to host a show on VH1 some years back and never looked as tall as 6'5"-6'6" on it. (the show involved him talking to various guests so I could get a good comparsion in mind) He always looked 6'3" to me. I agree with Glenn, he wears large shoes to appear taller.
[Editor Rob: I finally have a look at this geezer...I will agree that downgrade, I'm sure I read another quote where he said he wasn't that sure on his height, I might come across it in the future]
Glenn said on 25/Apr/06
Plenty of photos.will post when found.thanks!
J-Dog said on 25/Apr/06
Yeah Glenn, I never asked my brother about Sebastian's footwear not that he would remember et cetera.
Did you ever get any pictures with him Glenn?
Glenn said on 25/Apr/06
Hmm.always looked 6-3 to me and my friends.he always wears cowboy boots that make him 6-5,6-6.saw him in sneakers at 6-3,cause my friend is 6-1.
J-Dog said on 25/Apr/06
I don't think he is lying about his height nor is he 6'9". He is very tall though, my brother works in the Apple Store in Manhattan and actors and celebrities like William Dafoe, Seal, Tom Welling, and Sebastian Bach come in all the time, I envy him because he can gauge heights not that he even cares, hahaha. My brother stands a shade below 6'3" during the day, but his morning height is 6'3", and he commented on Sebastian being tall which would only happen if someone was 2" or more taller than him I figured. Sebastian is also a really cool and down to earth guy I hear.
Jim said on 16/Aug/05
He is lying about his height. He is actually 6'9 and embaressed about it. I met him onece and I'm 6'6" and he was super taller.
