Bon Scott Tribute

Ronald Belford (Bon) Scott was born at Kirriemuir, Scotland, on 9th July 1946. The Scott family migrated to Australia 1952 and they settled in Fremantle in 1956 where Bon attended North Fremantle Primary School and later John Curtin High School. His passion for music intensified during his teenage association with ‘The Caledonian Scots Pipe Band’ of Fremantle who awarded him ‘Novice Champion for Drumming’ four years running. Bon dreamt of being a ‘Rock n Roll Star’ and began living his dream with voracious passion. He first performed with “The Spektors’ 1965, ‘The Valentines’ 1966-70 and ‘Fraternity’ 1970-73 before joining ‘AC/DC’ in 1974 with whom he proceeded to shake the foundations of Rock n Roll music through his writing and performance of what have become recognised by millions of fans around the world as the greatest Rock n Roll anthems ever written including; ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’, ‘TNT’, ‘High Voltage’, ‘Jailbreak’, ‘Let There Be Rock’, and ‘Highway To Hell’. The tragic and untimely death of Bon Scott on the 19th February 1980, in London UK, left us with an enduring musical legacy that continues to inspire the Rock n Roll spirit in successive generations. In September 2005 the National Trust of Australia listed the Bon Scott Grave Site as a “Heritage and Cultural Icon”. This is the first contemporary icon to be added to a list traditionally reserved for buildings and homes. In July 2006, to mark what would have been Bon Scott’s 60th Birthday, the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board  completed refurbishments on the Bon Scott Grave Area. This consisted of a Bon Scott Arch and Memorial Entrance gate and a new rustic looking black concrete footpath with stainless steel symbols embedded at both ends of the 50 m walkway. The actual gravestone was not disturbed and has remained in its original position since 1980. In 2008 a life-size bronze statue of Bon Scott was unveiled overlooking the Fisherman’s Wharf in Fremantle. This album contains a few images of the Bon Scott Tribute Sculpture and the Bon Scott Grave Area. A ‘Rock n Roll Legend’ whose star continues to rise.
