To support Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl's claim that all modern music stars are short, Gigwise has taken a look at the musicians and singers that support his point.
Grohl, who measures up at 6' on the nose (or hair), has said he remembers a time when all the members of bands were tall.
But if you look back at music through the years – from Ringo Starr in the 60s right up to today and the pintsize Aston Merrygold of JLS – there's always been stars who are not as big as their music.
You can see both Starr and Merrygold, as well as other stars including Thom Yorke, Prince and Kanye West, in ours round-up below.
