Bon Scott sculpture unveiled at Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane

The iconic AC/DC frontman has been immortalised in the legendary laneway

Music fans gathered along the cobbles of Melbourne’s iconic AC/DC Lane today to grab a first glimpse of a new Bon Scott sculpture.

The legendary AC/DC frontman has been immortalised in the walls lining the laneway thanks to Melbourne-based artist Mike Makatron.

“It’s an honour to add a permanent 3D element that pays tribute to a great Australian rock’n’roll band and its lead singer, Bon Scott, but also to music in general,” Makatron told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“Thanks to all, especially the vision of James Young of Cherry Bar, who instigated the idea and grant application with Creative Victoria.”

The unique sculpture is a three-metre by two-metre metal and plaster masterpiece, rendered with concrete and soaked in Scott-inspired attitude.

Bon Scott is one of the most iconic names in Australian music, having fronted AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980.

The Scottish-Australian singer was also the band’s songwriter, responsible for rock anthems like It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll), Highway To Hell and T.N.T.
