At the 2013 Bonfest in Kirriemuir, Scotland, the funding campaign for the Bon Scott statue to be erected in Bon's hometown has been started. By June 5th 2013, a total of 50,000 pounds must be collected in order to make this effort possible.
The project was initiated by DD8 Music, a non-profit organization to erect a statue of Bon in his home town of Kirriemuir. The statue has the full support of all of the local community counselors and has been offered support by several local businesses.
DD8 Music has commissioned renowned sculptor John McKenna to produce a work of art that exemplifies Bon's spirit and his Scottish roots. John is an incredible artist who has produced some truly magnificent work over the years. You can see some of his fantastic work at his website: http://www.a4a.com/
Now, the AC/DC community is being invited to help fund the statue project! To keep up to date with the project's plans please follows the Bon Scott Statue Twitter page: https://twitter.com/BonScottStatue and Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bon-Scott-Statue-Kirriemuir/269001339883417
