On the occasion of the unveiling of a statue of AC/DC’s Bon Scott, London’s Guardian looks back at some “abominations of the artform.” You can access their gallery of bad musicians’ sculptures through the link below.

Among the statues featured is that of Bob Marley (above), with the following caption:

I tend to disagree with their assessment, as I find this sweetly charming, but there it is.
