AC/DC Fans Reach Funding Goal For Bon Scott Hometown Statue

(Classic Rock) AC/DC fans have rallied round to complete funding for a statue of Bon Scott to be placed in his hometown. He was born in Kirriemuir, Scotland, before his family moved to Australia and he found fame as the iconic band reached the big time.

Local organization DD8 Music have been working on the project for several years - and they've finally secured the 45,000 needed to complete the job.

But pledges are still being taken, with additional money to be used to pay for an "extra-special" garden to be built round the statue. DD8 Music say: "Kirriemuir already has a few things honouring Bon - a street named after him, a memorial plaque, an AC/DC section in the local museum, and our annual Bonfest." Read more here.
