Bon Scott to have monument erected in Scotland

AC/DC singer Bon Scott, who died aged 33 in 1980, is to have a monument honouring him erected in his hometown of Kirriemuir.

Scott was born in nearby Forfar in Scotland in 1946, before his family moved to Australia when he was six, and a Kirriemuir community group want to honour their local hero by erecting a statue.

DD8 Music, who are also behind the annual Bon Scott music festival in the town, have approached sculptor John McKenna to design a statue as a lasting tribute.

McKenna said, “It’s early days, but it’s a great honour. Bon Scott was an icon from my teenage years.”

The tribute to the late singer has received backing from former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans said: “It’s so amazing that Bon is getting honoured like this, especially since Scotland is such an important place in the history of AC/DC. Bon already had a street named after him in Kirriemuir and now this!”

Bon has a statue in his honour in his hometown of Claremont, Australia. Erected in 2008, the monument is situated at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
