His height seems to be a big mystery

I've heard everything from 5'6" to 5'8"

From my experience of the one and only time I was close to him and shook his hand-I'm 5'9 1/2" tall, and he seemed about 2 inches shorter than me-and he was wearing boots that had a lil' heel. So who knows for sure-I don't!

He was 3'11". You know the midget from the "All I want is you" video....that's Bono. Three straight years of hanging upside down produced the 5'6" Bono that we see today.

That is correct. He also made a cameo in the 'Safety Dance' Video

I'd say Bono is about 5'6" without shoes and 5'7" with shoes (he wears the big heels!) artinis I'm 5'8" exactly and from my experience on stage I can say that you'd have to look down on the guy.. which was surprising.. looking down on someone you look up to so much

20 page interview? I don't believe I've seen an interview that long in a magazine. Is this something I missed?

Well, Im 16, and about 6ft. Bono, on stage, didnt really look to be small persay, but Ive had this discussion with skeek before, and I believe we agreed on something in the 5'6 to 5'8 range. What kinda caught me off guard, is his voice seemed a bit higher than the usual album versions and lives Ive got on my computer, but then again, this was my first show and Im not a great judge of what the norm is.
