Bon Scott Statue Erection Planned For Late AC/DC Singer's Scottish Birthplace
23
According to Blabbermouth, legendary AC/DC singer Bon Scott will be honored with a statue in in Kirriemuir, Scotland - Bon's birthplace and home of his family in his early years. Kirriemuir community group DD8 Music, which organizes the annual Bon Scott music festival in the town, has asked sculptor John McKenna to design a statue as a lasting tribute. John said: "It's early days, but it's a great honor. Bon Scott was an icon from my teenage years". An Australian statue honoring Scott (see video below) was first revealed at the Aussie Rock Celebration concert in suburban Claremont in February 2008 and was placed permanently at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour in Western Australia in October that same year. Scott was just 33 when found dead in February 1980 from acute alcohol poisoning after a night out in London. He was later buried at Fremantle Cemetery. Scott's family migrated to Melbourne from Roods Kirriemuir in Scotland when he was six years old and soon moved to Fremantle. He joined AC/DC in 1974 and led the band to its initial international success.

    Also, I just watched that video, and I realized at about 6 that somebody had to sit there and plan out how to tastefully and respectfully sculpt his bulge.
