    Alright, i've been playing for my band Spazem for about 2 months, we had our first gig a week ago, we won't be back out til we write new stuff, but anyway. We'll all I guess medium to slightly large sized guys, but man, everyone thought we were giants. To give you an Idea, I'm 6'1, the drummer is 6' , the lead guitartist is 6'2, and the singer/rhythm guitarist is 6'5. I mean, I know I'm usually the tall guy in the band, but like we had all these like midget bands, oh well. l8r

    I'm the shortest one at 5'10". Our drummer's about 6', and the guitarist and singer are both about 6'3". In my other band, I'm still the shortest guy. The two girls (keys and vocals) are both about 5'6", and the other three guys are all about 6'2".

    Maybe you should hook up with this band:

    That would be a great tour.

    Find out more at www.thelittlekingz.com. Yes, the singer is indeed named "Scotty F-Word." :rolleyes:

    I'm only 5'8", but in my last band the guitarist was 6'0" and the drummer was 6'8", making our average height just over 6'1". All of our weights added together probably equaled about 26 pounds as well. We looked like lollipops with instruments.
     
  6. I was once in a band with 2 really tall fat guys (I am one of them), and 2 really short skinny guys. Kind of a weird mix.

    I'm 6.4, drummer is 6.3, singer is 6.1 and guitarist is 6.3....pretty tall i guess...
     
  10. I'm 6' 4 1/2", and have old photo's of me playing on stage with a guitar player that was about 4' 10".

    I've always been the tall one in the band. Except one band, that had a drummer that was 6' 8", but that doesn't count, cause he sits down.

    Im 6', drummer is 6'4", guitarists both 6', and the singer is 5'2".
     
  12. Our rhythym guitarist is 6"7, and skinny with it. The lead guitarist is 5"7, and me and the singer are 5"8. The drummer is about 6"2, but he's sitting on a drum stool, so when we're on stage, it looks kinda strange. Every review we've ever had has commented on it in some way or another. Actually, he kicked me in the shin yesterday when I called him a lampost, so I think it may be getting to him ;):D.

    The average American male today is 4 inches taller than an American male born in 1955.
