The one time I met Ben in a parking lot somewhere back in 2009, I actually asked him how tall he was.

"I'm about 5'11."

There.

I meet my f*cking hero and all I can do is ask him how tall he is. Well, I asked him other things, too, but I asked him that for some reason.

are we seriously discussing the man's height?

Yeah we are. Apparently, it's more interesting than talking about Ben's new Ladyfriend.

qft.

ben's personal life doesn't really matter to me much, unless it starts to impact the business. i mean, i miss fleur, she was a fun internet friend, but, i don't know what happened there, i don't care to know what happened there.

until then, ben says he's about 5'11". alright. his brother's about the same height.

UK friends! It's official: I will be the first opener for @BenFolds Five at Brixton Academy Dec 4. You heard it here first!

And Alicia will be playing at Pure Pop Records in Melbourne on November 10. It would be nice if they played together at  Harvest.

I have a hard time buying Ben is 5'11". I'm 6'4" and I was significantly taller than him, moreso than five inches.

But, that's funny, because his height was the main thing that jumped into my head meeting him as well.  And I'd seen him live a number of times before that but it never really registered.  Saying hi and shaking his hand, though, just brought it down to ground level.

Ha. First time I met Ben I still had never had a front row ticket - in fact, never in the first 10.
All I could keep saying to whoever the girl next to me in the crowd to meet him was - I've never seen him real size before. Cause that's what came to my head in that moment.
Haaaaa

The most interesting tidbit in the article - Ben's had a phone conversation with Hilary Clinton. I'm far more interested with that.

I'm pretty sure we just need to expect this to be what happens, although now that he's publicly declared that maybe marriage isn't the best thing for him...
