AC/DC - 30 Years On From The Death Of Bon Scott, His Birthplace Pays Tribute








According to Billy Briggs from Scotsman.com, Scotland has always held AC/DC close to its heart because of Scott and also the Young brothers, Angus and Malcolm, the band's lead and rhythm guitarists, respectively, who were born in Glasgow but later emigrated to Australia where they would hook up with Scott in the early 1970s.

In 2006, the townsfolk of Kirriemuir decided that Scott should be honoured, and money was raised for a plaque to be sculpted and placed in the town square, beside memorials to other famous locals.

"We have the Kirrie 'walk of fame' beside Cumberland Close, where there are plaques to commemorate JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan, the noted geologist Charles Yell, who was a mucker of Charles Darwin, and mountaineer Sir Hugh Munro, whom Scotland's Munros are named after. There are also plaques honouring three Victoria Cross winners and the Cameron family for their services to Scottish country dance music," says Roland Proctor, chairman of Kirriemuir Community Council, a 65-year-old who was never a fan of AC/DC but admits to being the recent owner of a t-shirt.




"I remember Scott's family, as they lived just off the 'Roods' in Kirriemuir. One of the Scotts had a baker's shop in Bank Street, which isn't there any more, and another Scott had a grocer's. I also remember 'Stew' Scott but I can't remember if he was Bon's great uncle or grandfather. There was an auntie too, but she died recently. The annual Bon Scott Day in the town has attracted people from all over the world. There have been hundreds of people turning up each year and we've had people from Austria, Holland and even Australia, including leather-clad bikers but there's never been any trouble and the people in the town really enjoy the event."

This year's Bonfest 2010 on October 30, is being organised by DD8 Music and will feature a number of local bands playing gigs in the town's bars and the day will culminate in a concert at the town hall headlined by an AC/DC tribute band from Fife called BON'S BALLS.
