I'm like 1.64 metres, thats 5 feet and 14 centimetres. I'm only 14 though, but not growing =(

I only know metres/cm, does 5"5 mean 5 feet 5 inches?

actually...

the most successful people are as follows:

male
brunette hair
5'11"

now, not to t00t my own horn here...

but i possess all of those qualities. I'm supposed to be 5'11" when I am an adult, accordin to doc. bask in my glow biatches.

jk. you don't have to bask in my glow and youre not biatches. but, the other stuff is true. and i am supposed to be 5'11".

Ayumi Hamasaki is uber short.

But Miyavi is pretty tall. And Jim Root is like 6'7" or something.

I think people may tend to just notice taller musicians more?

Joey Jordinson is about 5'3''

he was 5' 9 1/2" so i dunno... i consider tall to be about 6'2" or so... but he wasn't tall, that's for sure.

EDIT: ^not right. his height exactly isn't known... it is said to be anywhere from 5'7" to 5'10"... but he had sciliosis or however you spell it, where his spine wasn't straight so... no one knows... but he definitely wasn't a tall musician, and he was VERY popular.

Does that include brown people? Cause I'm male, about 5"9' with a couple more inches in me for growth, and I have black hair, but I'm brown. Am I successful?

being male brunette hair and 5'11" doesnt make u anymore or anyless successful

you think most successful people are like that probably because around 50% are male, probably 25~30% are brunette in the western world? and 5'11" is a pretty common height.

so yea...

Sergei Rachmaninoff was really tall for his time too, I think.

And he had a MASSIVE hand span. His hand span was about twice the size of mine or something, and I'm pretty tall.

He could play the root note, 5th, ovtave, then 5th above that on piano.
#28
it really doesn't matter?

there are short musicians and there are tall musicians, and there are some in between.

just like any other profession (minus basketball)

idk i didn't come up with it... but the people with these characteristics are more likely to be successful... and there are more women than men in the world just so you know

and i would think that more than that were brunette... but ok.

it has something to do with how people treat different people because of their characteristics... so i dont know. like, most people do not consider blondes to be smart, etc.

but im not sure exactly.

so yea...

Kyo of Dir en Grey is very very tiny. Don't know his exact height.


Most Japanese musicians are quite short.

And Doppelgänger, I can only play an C to E (octave up), or if I am willing to go through alot of pain, C to F. And I'm tall.

I think Flea is kinda short. Mark Boland, too.

Yeah. But that is mainly due to China. If you ignored statistics from China then I'm sure it would be about the same.
