Long Tall Sally and her friends

Categories: Music
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

Tall but not super tall
Sonny Rollins
Gerry Mulligan
Joe Elliot (Def Leppard)
Gene Simmons
Randy Newman
Bill Clinton (pop-jazz saxophonist)
Sly Stone
