Lemmy Leads Oversize Statue Tributes At Download


(Classic Rock) Oversize statues of Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper and Lemmy have been unveiled as a tribute to the most iconic acts to have played Download over the years.

Also joining the rock star trio are caricatures of Marilyn Manson, Slash and The Prodigy's Keith Flint. The eight-foot replicas, made of polystyrene and fibreglass, have been erected in the VIP area. They were created by second year design students at Birmingham City University.

Module leader Hollie Wright says: "We've developed a strong relationship over the last eight years between our Design for Theatre, Performance and Events course and the Download Festival.

"It is such a fantastic opportunity both for our students - producing sculptures for such a high profile live event - and for a local, yet mammoth, festival to be engaging with such a unique course." Read more and see more photos of the statues here.
