Bon Scott

Bon Scott, the late singer for Aussie rock legends AC/DC, is to be immortalised - a statue of him will be unveiled in February.

The statue of Scott will be shown to the public for the first time on February 24th during a testimonial concert in Perth, Western Australia.

The concert at the city's Claremont Showgrounds will feature performances by Rose Tattoo, Noiseworks, The Screaming Jets and The Party Boys - a supergroup comprising former members of AC/DC, Status Quo, Mondo Rock and The Valentines.

Born in Scotland in 1946, Scott emigrated to Australia with his family in 1952 and was the singer with AC/DC from 1974 until his untimely death. He died in London on February 19th 1980, from alcohol poisoning, following a night out at the Camden Palace (now KOKO).

The statue will further cement Scott's role as an icon of music in his adopted country. The National Trust of Australia have already placed Scott's grave in Fremantle, near Perth, on a list of national cultural monuments.

AC/DC, who are still together with a new line up, were most famous for their two seminal rock albums - 1979's Highway To Hell and 1980's Back In Black.
