Long Tall Sally and her friends
class=img_thumbleft>While listening to the forthcoming Ramones boxed set, I got to thinking sentimental thoughts about the great Joey Ramone, who was very tall. And that got me to thinking about other exceptionally tall musicians. I've started a list, which I thought y'all could add to in the comments section below. I'm considering "exceptionally tall" to be 6'4 and up for men and 5'11 and up for women. After the "exceptionally tall" list I've noted some musicians whose heights I couldn't determine using the Internet, but whom I understand to be very tall. I've also listed some tall but not remarkably musicians.
Exceptionally Tall Musicians Krist Noveselic Thurston Moore Joey Ramone Shaquille O'Neal Mick Fleetwood Michael Franti Bessie Smith Peter Steel (singer for Type O Negative) John Tesh John Kerry (guitarist, Electras)
I'm pretty sure these people belong on the above list Sergei Rachmaninoff Buckethead
Tall but not super tall Sonny Rollins Gerry Mulligan Joe Elliot (Def Leppard) Gene Simmons Randy Newman Bill Clinton (pop-jazz saxophonist) Sly Stone
