Come on.
« on: February 01, 2020, 02:49:07 PM »
Wikipedia lists Larry Mullen Jr as being 5'7". Exactly the height I would have guessed.

Adam Clayton is listed as 5'10". Also bang on for what I guessed.

Bono is listed as 5'9". NO. I mean, that is embarassing. He's 5'6". Larry is a little taller than him, and apparently a lot more honest.

Now here's where it gets weird. The Edge is listed as 5'10".

I'm guessing 5'7" or 5'8" for Edge. Adam is clearly the tallest in the group. Edge is not Adam's height. So why is Edge vain about his height?

Maybe it's sycophantism. If Edge is 5'10", Bono gets to be 5'9".

Eye roll.

lmao over this thread. Well, all I know is that I was a foot away from Adam (and that memory just gave me goosebumps as big as an elephant's butt), and he was a tiny bit taller than me. I am about 5'9", so he may be 5'10. And, Edge seems to be a hair shorter than Adam, so very close to 5'10. Oh, man, the goosebumps...I MET ADAM CLAYTON.

So you guys think Edge could actually be 5'10"? He seems 5'8" to me.

Also, folks, judge away. Yes, I actually started a thread on this topic. Come at me.

Well, let me just say that I would be honored to get the chance to measure our Edge. Close up. HA

So, laoghaire...how tall are YOU?

5'4". Any band member is tall enough for me.

I'd be fine with Prince, too. No lifts needed.

You're a shrimp! You lucky dog...I've always been "too" tall...although many women are taller than me, obviously. Being tall has some advantages (especially at a concert)...but like you said, all our guys would be tall enough for you. I would tower over Bono and Larry...but hugging them might be fun.  :-[

Thats why I hate GA  being 5 "6  everyone in front of me is taller .If you are tall GA is perfect for you .RZ is the same, I usually buy Rz and I still can't see shit.Then I go into GA still can't see surrounded by taller people.Just can't get a break.

When I do GA for the first time, I'll be at the very back, where I'll have enough room for some perspective. I've never cared about my height.

Trust me I spend most of time running back and forth someone taller always comes in front of me.

I met Bono. He is as tall as I am. 168 cm (which is 5inch6 I think).
