The late Bon Scott, lead singer of AC/DC between 1974 and 1980, will be honored in Melbourne, Australia with a three-meter sculpture.
The inauguration will take place on March 6 at AC/DC Lane, a street designated in tribute to the band. The memorial is part of a Rockin ‘The Laneways project that seeks to honor the country’s musical history.
No further information about the event has yet been released.
On February 19, 1980, Bon Scott spent the entire night drinking in London. The next morning Alistair Kinnear (a friend of Scott’s) took him to the hospital in Camberwell. Scott was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital.
Pulmonary aspiration of vomiting was the cause of Bon’s death. In the official document of his death he is listed as “alcohol intoxication” and “death by misfortune.”
Scott’s family buried him in Fremantle Cemetery, Australia, where they emigrated when Bon Scott was still a child.
Inconsistencies in the official document of Scott’s death have been cited in conspiracy theories, which suggest that Scott died of overdose from heroin consumption, or that he was killed inside the car, or that Alistair Kinnear did not exist. Additionally, Scott was asthmatic, and the temperature was below freezing on the morning of his death.
