Is the blur in the background Stills? Doesn't look like him to me. More like Skip Spence.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

She must have been tiny. Robert Plant is no basketball player.

Nice addition of "or so" to make it sound like casual knowledge

I would have thought shorter (and have seen him live) but fine... I'll bow to your expertise DD

Well I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to have said "He is exactly 72.84 inches tall"?

As it is, I've just checked - and he is, in fact, 6 foot 1 inch tall.

Jimmy is apparently 5 foot 10 (and a bit).

JPJ is 5 foot 8 (and a bit).

Hope this helps?

And if they did, they would've played at the UNLV basketball auditorium, I would think.
