Perth Channel 9 news in Australia's aired a short report on February 22, 2008 about the Bon Scott statue unveiling, which is taking place in Perth this weekend. Watch the clip below.
According to PerthNow, the lifesize bronze statue will be revealed at the Aussie Rock Celebration concert in suburban Claremont today (Sunday, February 24) before being placed permanently at Fisherman's Wharf in Fremantle, where the singer grew up.
Scott was just 33 when found dead in February 1980 from acute alcohol poisoning after a night out in London.
He was later buried at Fremantle Cemetery.
West Australian Bon Scott Fan Club president Doug Thorncroft, who pushed for almost a decade to have a permanent tribute to his Scottish-born hard rock hero, said the statue was just right.
"It's true Bon in his rock and roll singer stance. He's giving it all to the crowd, he said.
"He's got a microphone in his left hand, tilted up and the cable from the amp on the right, and it's just so Bon.
"His jeans are painted on with his package bulging out.''
Local Fremantle sculptor Greg James put the finishing touches on the statue last night and today presented the statue to the media, apart from the covered-up face.
Scott's family migrated to Melbourne from Roods Kirriemuir in Scotland when he was six years old and soon moved to Fremantle.
He joined AC/DC in 1974 and led the band to its initial international success.
