Statue of Billy Fury, beside the Piermaster's House, Albert Dock, Liverpool, UK, 8 August, 2008

Billy Fury (born Ron Wycherley), 1940-83, was a prominent figure in the evolution of British rock'n'roll, writing many of his own songs (uncommon in the early 1960s) and achieving record sales comparable to those of The Beatles or Elvis Presley.
This characterful 2003 statue is by Tom Murphy, and was donated to National Museums Liverpool by the 'The Sound of Fury' fan club. As with 'Legacy', seen earlier in this photoset, Fury's statue may be here only temporarily whilst the new Museum of Liverpool is being built, but it's an apt location anyway, as Fury was a deckhand on a Mersey tug before achieving international fame.
