Lastly, Never painted a 20-foot mural dedicated to Bennington because he “thought it would be good for something.” The artwork, which can be seen on the 101 freeway northbound near Coldwater Canyon Avenue in California, features the late singer shirtless with a smile on his face.

“When I heard Chester died, I immediately thought of that wall because I knew some of the band members lived in the Valley,” Never told "Entertainment Tonight." “I just texted [the restaurant owner] Jim [Connors] and offered to do it for free because it was the right thing to do.”
