Home Town Tributes AC/DC's Bon Scott

(BW&BK) Kirriemuir, Scotland is rightly famous for its excellent gingerbread and association with the writer JM Barrie. But the "wee red toon" is also the birthplace of Bon Scott, the late vocalist with AC/DC, a band with distinct Peter Pan tendencies.

Now in their 50s and with their lead guitarist still wearing school uniform, the surviving members continue to tour the world's enormodomes with songs about sex, excess and the righteous power of rock. They play Hamden Park at the end of June.

This is the fourth time that Kirriemuir has hosted a tribute, and this year's is known as "Rock On Bon!" Hundreds of AC/DC fans have descended on the town. The manager of the Thrums Hotel says he could have filled the rooms two or three times over, and there are a number of hardy rockers camping in the fields round the town. Local bands are playing all day in pubs, but the big draw is a performance at the town hall by High Voltage, an AC/DC tribute act from the badlands of East Anglia. - more on this story
