Gene Simmons - 6'1
Paul Stanley - 5'10
Ace Frehley - 6'
Peter Criss - 5'8
Eric Carr - 5'5
Vinnie Vincent - 5'7
Mark St. John - 6'1
Bruce Kulick - 6'2
Eric Singer - 5'5
Tommy Thayer - 6'2

You're low balling all of them by 1" each.

No I've met them all and I'm the same height as Gene and Mark. Bruce and Tommy were around an inch taller than me. Ace was an inch or so shorter (both of us in sneakers).

Thanks man! I think both he and mr.Anselmo deserve their own pages ;-)

Rob, how tall do you think Zakk Wylde is?
[Editor Rob: how much over 6ft I'm not so sure of.]
Nick said on 10/Jul/15
Yeh, Paul Stanley is probably not more than 5'10.5 ft today. Tommy Thayer looks quite a bit taller than both Paul and Gene.

How tall do you think Paul Stanley is? He looks 179cm to me, maybe a flat 5'10"

And lol at the thought of Gene Simmons being 5'7"! We can't see the ground in that shot, for all we know, Tom might have pavement advantage and is wearing crazy lifts to boot (pun intended).

2015 version of Gene Simmons (66 years old) has minimum 2" on Dave Grohl (at 5:54): Click Here

Imagine was a young Gene Simmons would have had on him. 6'1" is too low. He was 1" shorter than self-proclaimed 6'3" Bruce Kulick in the mid 80's-mid 90's.

Rob, did you delete my previous post where I provided all those images? It's in the latest comments, but when I click on it, it's not here?
[Editor Rob: no, it is on this page, 2 comments I see.

It is likely just a cached page shown and not latest one...ctrl+f5 would request latest version.]

Gene was definitely 6'2" in his younger days. He had 1" on 6'1" Ace Frehley. Bruce Kulick has stated he was 6'3" on more than one occasion in interviews. Here are some pictures of Gene and Bruce , where Gene isn't wearing platform boots, seeing this was POST-makeup era and pre any height loss for Gene:

Paul with Dave Grohl

If he claims 6'2 (which he's obviously not, 6'1 at best) that must be why his son claims 6'8 since he's about 5 inches taller (even though he's under 6'7)
Danimal said on 6/Dec/14
Paul is not 6'1". He was 5'11" at his peak and claimed 6'0". Today at 62, he's even less. Gene has claimed both 6'2" and 6'3" for himself and was probably a solid 6'2" at his peak and today at 65 might be a flat 6'1".
the shredder said on 7/May/14
Always thought Paul was more than the 5'11 , 6 '0.
Brad said on 6/May/14
Stanley was 6' 1" easy inches from me yesterday.
Anon said on 5/May/14
Paul Stanley describes himself, in his book, as being 6-8 with seven-inch heels on.
Anon said on 13/Feb/14
Zakk actually just said he was "a good six-feet tall" in a recent Guitar World interview
RickWebb said on 23/Dec/13
Re: Zakk Wylde- I've met him. Solid 5'11"- 6 Footer. Incredibly nice guy too.
Josh said on 29/Nov/13
Now a days hes not over 6'0

@Danimal says on 2/Dec/12
Haha that proves nothing but I agree he looks 6'1 zone maybe barely. He never was a real 6'2 his life is boots and big elevator shoes. His son is close to 6'7 no that it matters but he has 5-6 inches on Gene and like his father he caught the gene of inflating his height with boots and bumping it up 1-1.5 inch
Nick22 said on 12/May/13
Yeh, he doesn't look taller than 185 cm today. It's possible that he was close to 6'2 when he was younger.

Gene beside 6'2" Zakk Wylde

If Gene is 6'1", Wylde is 5'11.5" lol. He looked around the same as 6'0" Steve Vai in another video.
Brad said on 9/Aug/12
Probably 6' 1" now. Paul wears lots of weaved hair now, almost a wig, lost 30% of his vocals as of last night.

I think if Simmons is really only 6`1 then other kiss members are - Criss- 5`6
Ace - 6`0,Stanley either 5`11 or 6 ft,Bruce Kulick - 6`2.
his son is very very skinny maybe 6'6. 6 inches on Gene
