I would like to state again that Bono is about 5'5" to 5'6" because I don't think it was said enough already!

Yep he's my same height, I remember noticing it Miami 2nd night I was standing right next to him as he made his way through the crowd after the Fly (oh the Fly, what good memories).

You just have to know the conversion rate. When trying to figure out a man's height you always need to subtract 2 inches from his "reported height". Bono reports his height as 5'8", that would convert to 5'6"

However, the conversion is a little more complicated with a reported height of 5'8", because all men under 5'8" report their height as "around 5'8" unless they are REALLY short, like under 5'. With the testimonies above I think the conversion rate is probably correct in this case and 5'5" or 5'6" is a safe bet

Same tall (small) as me. He is no small, it's okay. The whole band is on the same size.

Don't know what makes this question so fascinating, but -- here we are.

"snoggable" --
But when I calculate that height walking through my door, first thing I think is how easily

huggable

that great man is. *awwwwwww*

And one last thought: if it's true Edge and Larry are really the same height as Bono... how come he's the one who always gets called "short"??
(However, the long and lanky one, now THERE'S snoggable! So, how tall is Adam, exactly...? oh sorry, wrong forum...)

You have been misinformed. The magic number is 3. It's always three so us guys don't need to remember different numbers for different exagerations.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. That makes sense. 3 it is!

Still, since his reported height of 5'8" is at the bottom of the reporting scale, he could be anywhere from 5' to 5"6".
