(hennemusic) A statue of AC/DC legend Bon Scott has become the top attraction in the late singer's Scottish hometown of Kirriemuir just two weeks after it was unveiled.

The life-size bronze statue - funded by fans around the world - took sculptor John McKenna three years to complete. The landmark was unveiled on April 30 as part of the town's 10th annual BonFest event, which featured special guests Mark Evans, Tony Currenti and Bob Richards who all played with AC/DC, and Melbourne fashion designer Mary Renshaw, whose new book Live Wire charts her friendship with the singer who was her soulmate.

Now, The Courier reports the tribute has surged ahead of the Angus Glens and Peter Pan author JM Barrie's birthplace on reviews website TripAdvisor to become the town's most popular attraction. Read more here.
