Bono's Height-SOLVED!!!

This is a measurement book from U2's stylists thats on a music auction site
https://www.gottahaverockandroll.com...searchvalue=U2
and here are the pics!: (He's 5ft 7"!!) [which makes sense, because i took a picture with the Black eyed peas guitar player and he was taller than me and I'm 5ft 6.5" and I just watched a video from when u2 played the rock and roll hall of fame 25th anniversary show, and when the black eyed peas came on stage and Bono was next to the guitar player, Bono was only a little bit shorter than him! Bono's height mystery is solved!!!!]






from the site:

This leather bound measurement book was used by U2's stylist Lola Cashman to record the measurements of Bono and the rest of the band, as well as other entertainment artists such as George Michael and the members of his band. The detailed measurements have been meticulously handwritten. This measurement book comes directly from the collection Ms. Cashman, who was U2's stylist throughout the 1990's. She is also the author of the book, "Inside the Zoo with U2.".

5'7" barefoot would mean at least 5'9" in Creepers e there's absolutely no way Bono is that tall.
To me he's 5'5%, 5'5.5" tops.
Same height with 5'5" Sarkozy:

That's actually what I would have guessed his height at, based on when I met him.

Besides what the others have said, these were measurements from the 90's, and he didn't wear Creepers back then.

Nice. Good to see her doing something decent, for a change.

Yeah, that's true.

I don't want to downgrade my hero, but judging by all Bono's pics 5'7" it's hard to believe (it's just my opinion, I could be wrong )

Look at this: http://tinyurl.com/y9bqkwz

Bono (in "platform")) is way shorter than Helena Christensen (5'10") and a bit taller than Penelope Cruz (5'3" - 5'4"), both barefoot.

So if Cruz is 5'4" and she comes up to the top of his glasses/the bottom of his forehead, add on another 5 inches to the top of his head, then subtract two inches for his godawful platform sandals, you end up with 5'7". Math FTW.

I also find it hard to believe he is 5'7". I was outside the Ed Sullivan Theater last year when U2 was performing on Letterman all week. Bono was signing autographs and I was about a foot away from him. I'm 5'8", and I was very much taller than him. He's got to be 5'6" tops.
