Rovert Wadlow (USA), famously the tallest man ever had hands that measured 32.3cm (12.75in) from the wrist to the tip of his middle finger :D
I love that guys life story.I mean he was so cool.He was a 9' 10"(yes 9 feet 10 inches tall I believe)shoe salesman.He went door to door.I think his life would make a great movie.
I agree...but who would play him????? :D

This is ironic,because Tim Burton's new movie Big Fish has a giant in it! Looks great,too.

MICHAEL JACKSON used to have a pair of HUGE hands!!!
But he surgically reduced their size... they are very SMALL now...
If you don't believe me, try to compare photos!
He could've been a good guitar/bass player.

I still love Jump Man because it's the first one I heard..and the riff after the solo.."I've gotta keep pushing myself"..ROCK! That kicks ass,and it is so simple!

Joe's hands: Big
Steve's hands: Damn big

...but the largest guitar-player hands I've ever seen belong to Ken Burtch.
Quick too- check out "Comin' Thru".
Wow.

For the record, I just measured my hands:
From wrist to tip of middle finger is 8.25" (approx. 21cm).
Widest stretch (from index to pinky) is 7" (approx. 18cm).
