The birthplace of original AC/DC frontman Bon Scott is erecting a statue in the late singer's honor. DD8 Music, which also organizes an annual music festival in Scott's honor in the Scottish town of Kirriemuir, has commissioned sculptor John McKenna to create the piece, hopefully in time for next year's festival. Scott lived in Kirriemuir from his birth until his family emigrated to Australia when he was six years old. Former AC/DC bassist said that, "It's so amazing that Bon is getting honored like this, especially since Scotland is such an important place in the history of AC/DC. Bon already had a street named after him in Kirriemuir and now this!" The Kirriemuir statue joins another one in Claremont, Australia, that was erected in 2008. Scott, who died in 1980 at age 33, performed on AC/DC's first six albums and was the inspiration for the songs on 1980's "Back In Black."
