Bono's size?

Okay this is my first initial post so be patient with me. I have never met Bono (or any of the band). I have read accounts of people meeting them and describing their size (i.e. stature). I just read on the Hard Rock Cafe web page that when people see Bono's snake skin suit that is on display in the Maui restaurant, they are amazed at his small size/stature. I was in Maui last year and ate twice at that Hard Rock and am now kicking my a** that I didn't look around. The point of my rambling is: to all of you who have met him (them) how would you describe his/their size? Just curious.

A couple months ago, a reporter asked Bono what he saw in the mirror and he said: "I see a 5'8 rock star." That's all I got.

Bono is physically small (5' 6"), but, as one journalist put it, "everything about him radiates largeness". Physical size is irrelevant: his heart and soul are huge.

Doesn't Larry have scoliosis? He'd probably be taller if not for that.
