Rob would he measure in 5ft 4-5 range now he is in his 80s?
[Editor Rob: at his age he probably will be around that now.]

Richard Keil, who was at least seven feet tall, was a bouncer. So was Clint Walker, at six foot-six. You look like those gents and you can bounce belligerent people with a kind word and a big grin, which is so much more efficient than showing them your certificate from the dojo, wouldn't you say?

I have met people who have met Willie, and they all say what a friendly, humble man he is, so I'm just saying that bar-bouncing was probably not a vocation suggested to him by his high school guidance counsellor.

Height is measured from the head to the sky. Go Willie

Willie is an expert martial artist, with black belts in a variety of catagories, this would surely make him a good bouncer in spite of his height.

According to Wikipedia, young Willie once worked as a bouncer in a bar. What? At five-foot-eight? Must have had a lot of natural authority.

He looked pretty much a head shorter than Johnny Cash if Cash stood up straight and, despite his claim, is edged out by Bob Dylan (although not hugely). This listing is a good fit.

5'4"...i met him while he was in Nelson filming a movie, my sister in law was his personal valet at the hotel he stayed at. We stood back to back, without our boots on...we are exactly the same height!

Check out his recent mugshot "willie looks haggered is the caption" he appears to be n only 5 04 ..

He is much shorter than 5 07 you need to change this
[Editor Rob: he's listed as a shade under 5ft 6 or 5ft 5.75, not 5ft 7.

Of course at his age he might be nearer 5ft 5 now]

Whomever puts Willie at 5'7 1/2" is a fool! Willie Nelson is NO more than 5'4" to 5'5" my wife is 5'5" we were in the Airport with Willie he had on boots my wife had on flats and they looked to be identical height wise!

He's about 5ft 3 and a half these days according to his mugshot photo Click Here Probably right considering he's 77. He was arrested a few days ago for setting fire to a plant and inhaling the smoke wot came off it.

Those markers again are two inches not one, same with Armie Hammer. The mugshot shows him at 5'7" in probably standard boots which give 1-1.5 inches. 5'5.75" looks spot on, he is in fact about 5'6".

Lol at 5ft 6in or even 5ft 5in! Back in the 80's I met Wille here in nashville in an elevator at the mall with my sister with me. I'm 5ft 10in barefoot and I had on very low soul tennis shoes that made me say 5ft 10 and a half. My sister is 5ft 4in and she and Willie were the same height and he had cowboy boots on! I towered over him looking down at the top of his head. he's no more than 5ft 3in max barefoot. I know I met him and talked awhile, he's a very nice, humble guy.
