AC/DC fans launch kickstarter campaign for Bon Scott statue

Fans of AC/DC have launched a $77,500 fundraiser to generate cash for a monument honouring late frontman Bon Scott in his hometown in Scotland.

Sculptor John McKenna was commissioned last year to design a statue commemorating the star, real name Ronald Scott, and devotees of the band have ramped up funding for the project in Kirriemuir.

Local community group DD8 Music has launched a campaign on fundraising website, and organisers aim to raise $77,500 for the monument.

DD8 committee member John Crawford tells Classic Rock magazine, "Kirriemuir was the home town of a little lad called Ronald - who was to grow up and become the world's best-known frontman.

"We believe Bon deserves a statue. We've commissioned John McKenna to create a life-sized statue which will capture three things: his personality, his stage presence and his Scottish roots. We're appealing to the greatest fans in the world to come together and make this project a reality. We want the statue to be from the fans, for the fans."

Scott, 33, died in 1980 after suffering acute alcohol poisoning.
