George Harrison Height

"When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there."

~ George Harrison

Great musician and singer-songwriter, George Harrison is remembered as the lead guitarist of the Beatles -- also as being one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

It has been more than 50 years since the disbandment of The Beatles but people are still interested in the band, its members -- and the things that concern them -- even the members' height.

The three members of The Beatles were almost of the same height (Lil Ringo Starr being a bit different). But if you look at them carefully, it can be argued that George Harrison was a bit shorter than John Lennon and Paul McCartney -- but how much?

Mr. Harrison's passport listed his height at 5'10" -- which seeing how honest and precise he was -- must have been close to the mark.

The number is around what we have guessed for his height as well -- after carefully looking at him and comparing his height to that of his band-members

The real height of George Harrison was

5'10" or 178 cm

"It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it, and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one."
