Billy Joel Height

"As long as there are memories, yesterday remains. As long as there is hope, tomorrow awaits. As long as there is friendship, today is beautiful."

~ Billy Joel

Singing and songwriting powerhouse Billy Joel is known as one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Though very big in the world of music, Billy Joel is not that big in physical day-to-day life (though he has gotten wider with age).

Billy is listed as 5-feet-5 inches tall throughout the internet -- and for a good reason -- even we think that he is somewhere around the 5'5" neighborhood -- but surprisingly on the northern side of it.

Anyway, Billy's ex-wife Christie Brinkley is very tall -- around 5'10", and unsurprisingly she used to dwarf Billy.

The height Billy Joel is

5'5½" or 166 cm
