Late AC/DC singer Bon Scott will be honored with a statue in Kirriemuir, Scotland, his birthplace and home in his early years. A community group called DD8 Music, which organizes the annual Bon Scott music festival in the town, has asked sculptor John McKenna to design a statue as a lasting tribute. McKenna said, "It's early days, but it's a great honor. Bon Scott was an icon from my teenage years." There's no word on when the statue is expected to be unveiled. The legendary singer was just 33 when he was found dead in February 1980 from acute alcohol poisoning after a night out in London. (HenneMusic)

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has teamed up with Bill Finkbeiner, a Republican running for lieutenant governor of the state of Washington, to create a new video in which the two perform Finkbeiner's campaign theme, a take on Johnny Cash's "I've Been Everywhere." Finkbeiner said in a statement, "It's been an adventure campaigning for Lt. Governor across the state and sharing my plan for political reform, bipartisan cooperation, and real-world solutions in Olympia. Trying to put this experience in words is impossible, so we put it to pictures and music." (Loudwire)
