McKenna told the crowd: "When I was a kid, I used to listen to Bon Scott and when I did that, I never in a million years thought I'd be a sculptor and never thought I'd be making a statue of Bon Scott, the son of Kirriemuir, this musical icon.

"This has happened because fans from all over the world donated money for this statue - it wouldn't have happened otherwise." Check out video from the event here.
