Metal Sludge’s Top 10 Tallest & Shortest Rock Stars

According to many studies, the average American man is 5’10" tall. According to our studies, some Rock Stars are much shorter, and some much taller.

We did a little research and have pulled up stats on several rock stars and their height. Many of the findings very by an inch or two, but the general idea is there. If someone is short, they usually try to add an inch or two. Oddly, if someone is tall – like in the sporting world, they still add an inch or two. And if you’re in the band KISS, then you add 7 inches when you get dressed and take the stage!
