  1. You expect us to believe he is 6’2″, at 144lbs? He is not a tall man, and even if he was, 144lbs is very light for a man that is 6’2″. Maybe do a little research before posting, instead of just making up facts…

  2. I just LOVE his music!!!!!!

  3. I’m going to have to agree with Gregory Pozzo on this one. Having stood directly in front of him I can say if he’s 6’2″ then I must be at least 6’2″. I’m 5’10” and look him in the eye.
