According to The Courier, a bid to raise £50,000 to erect a bronze statue of legendary AC/DC singer Bon Scott in Kirriemuir, Scotland — his birthplace and home of his family in his early years — was launched this past weekend at the annual BonFest celebration.

Scott was born Ronald Belford Scott in Forfar in 1946 and lived in Kirriemuir until 1952, when his family moved to Australia.

Kirriemuir-based community group DD8 Music has commissioned Ayrshire sculptor John McKenna to design and sculpt the memorial statue of Bon. A sensational artist and AC/DC fan to boot, he said, “It’s a great honor.Bon Scott was an icon of my teenage years.” Some of John‘s other works include Jock Stein, outside Celtic park, and the Auchengeich miner.

DD8 is reaching out to the global AC/DC fan base to help fund the project. They want it to be funded by the fans for the fans. They are asking for fans around the world to join together and pledge just one unit of their currency, or indeed any amount they wish, towards the statue. There will also be the opportunity for fans to have their name displayed on a plaque or the actual plinth if they donate a specific amount.

An Australian statue honoring Scott 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. 8XBET KUBET 188BET kubet kubet88 kubet77 kubet11 kubet casino tải kubet kubet đăng nhập đăng nhập kubet kubet mobile kubet79 kubet86 kubet win kubet kim kubet888 đăng ký kubet dang nhap kubet link kubet kubet 11 thabet và kubet dang ky kubet kubet 77 kubet 88 game kubet trang chủ kubet link vào kubet kubet thien ha kubet ku casino kubet online kubet 86 kubet99 tại kubet kubet3 kubet789 kubet 69 kubet thiên hạ tải kubet ios kubet 868 kubet 89 kubet79 me kubet ac kubet 79 kubet official kubet365 kubet link kubet 24h kubet 777 kubet 18 kubet 711 kubet lừa đảo kubet bet thienhabet kubet kubet 365 kubet999 kubet88 đăng nhập casino kubet trang kubet kubet 888 kubet 111 tải kubet casino kubet7 download kubet kubet vip kubet tải kubet casino nét kubet bị bắt kubet dang nhap kubet tha tha kubet kubet download kubet apk tải game kubet link đăng nhập kubet nha cai kubet ku casino kubet kubet nét tải kubet vip kubet khuyến mãi vao kubet kubet88 casino kubet88 win tại kubet 88 hỗ trợ kubet kubet viêt kubet pro link đăng ký kubet kubet online nét đại lý kubet bị bắt kubet android chơi kubet link tải kubet kubet7777 vào kubet thien ha kubet kubet24 kubet 68 kubet dv vnkubet kubet cho iphone ku777 kubet
