Born in Kirriemuir, the singer passed away at the age of 30 in 1983 and now community members have decided to salute him by commissioning sculptor John MCKenna to design a statue in his honour.
The artist tells U.K. publication The Daily Record, "It's early days, but it's a great honour. Bon Scott was an icon from my teenage years."
And Ac Dc bassist Mark Evans admits he is happy his pal will finally get a proper tribute, telling Ultimate Classic Rock, "It's so amazing that Bon is getting honoured like this... Bon already had a street named after him in Kirriemuir and now this! I look forward to visiting Bon's birthplace in the future."
