Giant mural of late Chester Bennington stops traffic in Los Angeles
A 20-foot mural of Chester Bennington, Linkin Park's frontman who died at age 41 last month, has been painted and put up in Los Angeles.

The artwork is visible from the on-ramp to the typically clogged northbound section of the 101 freeway on Coldwater Canyon Avenue, south of Riverside Drive and its causing traffice as people try to get on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles to take a few moments to gaze upon a familiar face.

The artist who designed it Jonas Never said, 'I'd been seeing that big blank wall from the 101 and thought it would be good for something, so when I heard Chester died, I immediately thought of that wall because I knew some of the band members lived in the Valley. I just texted Jim and offered to do it for free because it was the right thing to do. When I was working on it, everyone in their cars on the 101 were beeping their horns and cheering. It was pretty cool. Now there's something to look at while you're stuck in traffic'.
