Bob Marley was usually put at 5'7", but I saw him described as short as 5'4".

Why don't you have a page for Bob Marley, Rob?

I always thought Bob Marley was around 5'7", but someone on this site mentioned he was only 5'4". I don't know.

5' 7" for Ziggy. Saw Bob in '76 in a club off 15th Street in Denver, he was a shrimp. The Wailers had lots of missing teeth. Rita was a cutie. He knew my nanny back in the early 60's.

Ziggy looks a lot shorter than 5'9" in his videos. I'd never guess he was even 5'6".

Bob Marley was 5ft4? I've thought he was 5ft7, but of course that could be an exaggeration, like when Paul and George from The Beatles were descired 6ft tall in the '60s.

Peter Tosh could be almost 6'4" and he looks huge because Jamaicans aren't really tall. Also if Ziggy Marley is at least 5'9". He's not above average human height.

Both, Ziggy and Damien Marley are 5'9 1/2" in my opinion!

It's funny, I always thought of Bob Marley as being tall. On the cover pic for "Legend", his hand -- which he's holding up to his face -- looks so big.

ziggy - 5'10
damien - 5'9.5
ky-mani - 5'9.5

joe said on 16/Mar/07
julian is WAY over 5'11 maybe 6'1
joe said on 16/Mar/07
whoa this can't be right.... I just watched some youtube and clearly ziggy is about 5'10 and stephen is 5'8 or something... (if I have not mixed the brothers up) and damien is too 5'10 and ,well, ky-mani looks 5'10 too and Julian is over 5'11...

As for Bob's height, here's an interesting tidbit from the book "Spirit Dancer" photo book (great book):
"Marley's personal magnetism fairly pulsates within the frames of Talamon's shots, disclosing Bob's deep curiosity for the fans he met on his travels, as well as as the radiant charisma that often left journalists and acquaintances mistakenly recalling him as a tall man (in reality Marley stood several inches shy of six feet).
I'd say give Bob 5'5.5-5'6.
Anthony said on 14/Dec/06
Ziggy and Damien both look 5'9 or 5'10. I read there brother Stephen is over 6'.
5'6 max for Bob IMO. I love Bob, he should be listed. I'm listening to "Get Up, Stand Up" right now.

Saw Bob up close in '78 & '80 in concert. 5' 6" is about it. Small mon. I still have the LP our Jamaican nanny left in '67, a various artists album with The Wailers on it. Bob looks soooo young. Wish I could find their local Jamaican 45's from the mid sixties.

The wailers. Peter Tosh to the right is 6'4'', then Bob Marley must have been 5'6''-5'7''. Click Here

A 1994 Sporting News story on son Rohan Marley's tenture as a linebacker for the University of Miami, described him as (then) 5'8" and 205 lbs. So it seems he's in the same height range as bros Ziggy and Damien?

One of the biggest shocks for me at how small he was.
said on 4/Sep/06
Bob really looks like 5'4 - max. 5'7 on many pictures. For example this one: Click Here

ROB: what is your guess on BOB Marley??? 5'5" ???
Anonymous said on 29/Jun/06
I have read that he was 5'4 in a book ("Catch A Fire" by Timothy White) and in a couple of articles. Looking at his pictures I can believe it. Almost all his women, except his wife Rita, were taller than him.
Glenn said on 19/Jun/06
I have the photo with Ziggy.Ziggy and Daminen are both 5-9.maybe 5-9.5.my guess was Marley was 5-8.5-5 makes sense.I saw a photo of him signing for fans where he looked short.Jimmy Cliff is 5-5 too.

Someone should look into how tall Peter Tosh was, as he clearly towers over both Bob and Bunny Wailer. He's atleast in the 6 ft 4 in - 6 ft 4
TheJerk said on 7/Mar/06
Um... dunno about Ziggy. Looks quite average- but his dad Bob WAS short. He was 5'5 I remember reading that about him a while back. He does look short in his performances.

I saw Ziggy in concert back in the early 1990s. Hmm ... thinking back, yeah, I guess he was average height. The dreads and the thick shoes make him look bigger. As far as his old man's height, it's tricky. There was one fansite that listed him as 6'3" (an example of unrealistic celebrity worship) but there's this intresting comment concerning his height:
Actually Bob was "fine" but I was more attracted to Peter. When I went to Bob's house for the first time in august of 1975 with my friend Herbie Miller (who was a friend of Bob's and later Tosh's manager), he (Herbie) told me that either he or someone in the house asked Bob why he did not "hit" on me (make a pass for me). Bob told him that I was too tall!! Ha ha ha. That is true because I am 5 ft 10 inches tall!
The comment is vague concering Bob's height yet it pretty much confirms that he is under the 5'10" mark ...
