MELBOURNE, Australia (Seven News/CNN) - AC/DC fans are loving a new sculpture of Bon Scott, the Australian band's iconic, first lead-singer.

This sculpture was unveiled Tuesday in Melbourne, on the wall of the famous "AC/DC Lane."

It looks like Scott is breaking through the wall where hundreds of fans and sightseers go every week.

Scott died at the age of 33 in 1980, as AC/DC was on the verge of international stardom. He was featured on the first six of the band's albums and provided the vocals for hits like "Highway to Hell," "TNT" and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."

The metal and plaster sculpture was created by Melbourne-based artist Mike Makatron. Scott's son said it is a fitting tribute.
