The late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott has been fittingly immortalised in stone above the Melbourne laneway bearing the name of the rock band that brought him worldwide fame.

A large-scale, permanent sculpture of the long-haired lead singer, who died in 1980, will be unveiled to the public and rock 'n' roll aficionados in AC/DC Lane on Tuesday.

The three-metre-high, two-metre-wide sculpture leaps from the brick wall of local music venue Cherry Bar and features the shirtless rock icon belting out a tune wearing his trademark denim jacket.
