Well, Thomas Gottschalk (the host) is 1.93m...
here's another picture of him together with Kylie Minogue:
IIRC, we already had the link to this 'Heaven's Open' playback TV perfornmance somewhere here in the forum, but anyway..

Nice hairstyle of Mike, isn't it? Here in Germany it was called 'Vokuhila' ('Vorne kurz, hinten lang' - front short, back long), but IIRC more fashionable in the 80s.

Kylie has got 155cm only,and on the pic with that host,you notice that she was wearing high heels!

Returning to Mike,well,he's a short guy(sooo cutie) and he's adorable on that playback performance of Heaven's Open...he did know how to make it sooo goood  ;)

When I met Alan Parsons in person,I had the same problem like Mike on that caption shown here...me small(163cm) and Alan very very tall(195cm)

That hair style is known as a "mullett" here in the UK. Very popular with footballers and pop stars in the 80's.

Girls had "Lady Di" haircuts and far to much pink face make-up (or was that the boys?)  :D

Here in the United States, I am embarrassed to say that many guys still have mullets.  Ugh.

As for the Heaven's Open video - I love it.  I wish Mike would sing more often.  It makes me weak in the knees.

I do have very same effects here.I wanna hear(and see) Mike singing again like on Heaven's Open tunes,not like he did on Rite of Man and On Horseback for example.

i would love to hear this in real. Not playback, but thought.. it was really a cool video.
I think and i mean he has a real cool voice.
I would not mind if he and sally did some vocals on next album..
Did he mention about some vocals in the future?
