Top shortest male musicians! These are the short men and surprisingly short celebs and the shortest men in music!
11. Phil Collins - As a musician, producer, singer, and actor, there isn’t much this superstar hasn’t done. He was born in London and learned to play drums at just five years old. He started his career early on by taking small roles in movies as a child. In 1970, Collins joined the band, Genesis, but about ten years later, he took off to pursue a solo career. Some of his singles include “One More Night,” “In the Air Tonight,” and “Two Hearts.” He has also released several albums, like Face Value in 1981, No Jacket Required in 1982, and Going Back in 2010. This musician has received several awards for his work, such as the 1985 Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and the 2000 Best Soundtrack Album Grammy for his work on Disney’s Tarzan. Although Phil Collins is widely known for his extensive work in the music industry, he’s also known for his short stature at just 5’6”. However, his abbreviated height hasn’t kept him from accomplishing great things.
10. Bono - Also known as Paul David Hewson, this artist has been making a name for himself since he began his career in the 1970s. He is recognized mostly as the lead singer of U2, a rock band he formed with Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen Jr., and the Edge, also known as David Evans. Their albums include 1980’s Boy, The Unforgettable Fire from 1984, and Songs of Experience from 2017. Bono is part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has been awarded over twenty Grammys, such as the 2005 Album of the Year award for U2’s record, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. This singer has even done some acting, like his role in the 2007 Beatles-based musical, Across the Universe. However, as much as Bono is known for his impressive career, he has also been identified as one of the shortest musicians on the scene. He stands at 5’6”, which is lower than average male height. But, Bono doesn’t need a tall stature with a voice as powerful as his.
