    I get a kick out of how some of my fave guitarists are these lil' 'ole dudes Ritchie Blackmore, Stevie Ray & Randy Rhoads.. I know for a fact Randy was barely 5 foot 7.. Blackmore is like 5 foot 6 I believe.. Stevie was maybe 5 foot 9.. Even Hendrix, who due to his legend most people would thinlk was 6 foot 4, was actually 5 foot 10.. Even Kurt Cobain, who we have discussed on here lately, was only 5 foot 7 and like 125 pounds. Such a loud brutal screaming sound comin' from that little frame.. very cool..

    So whatabout Ed? The dude cant be more than 5 foot 8, maybe 5'9"?

    Ed is a lot taller than 5'6". He's about 5'9", I'm 6'0" and I stood next to him, he is definitely not 5'6". Michael Anthony is about 5'6", he's tiny.

    I just looked at my "Meet and Greet" picture.

    Ed's about 5'10"........he's not 6 feet and he's not 5'6"....but somewhere in between

    MA is a lot shorter than Ed and Sammy is pretty short.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Weird, when I met him he was significantly shorter than me. I'm 6'1" and he was noticably shorter. Of course, I think he was slouching.

    5'9" is noticeably shorter than 6'1".

    Cliff Clavin mode on...

    It's a known scientific fact that the patented "Brown Sound" distorts the spacial perception thus making the guitarist appear larger than life...

    I always thought Ed was 5'10. Sammy is really short. In fact Im surprised Dave didnt offer him
    a job as one of his midgets.
    I still cant get over Sammy standing next to Dave at the VMA's. Sammy looked so small.

    I met him twice and know for a fact that I'm 5'5" and he was only about an inch or two taller than me, so he's got to be 5'6" or 5'7". Alex is more like 5'10" and Mike is like 5'4".
    Could this be magic?
