DAY 231 Chris Vignes photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP). 

Over a decade ago I heard about the Blues Marker. I was looking at the blues trail marker from the popular ones to the ones off the beaten path. I’ve seen over a hundred of them. There is one in downtown Los Angeles I’ve seen. I went to Delta State from Hattiesburg. A buddy called me and said go to Tutwiler and I went and Robert Plant was there. I spent half a day with him there. He stayed and spoke. It was really neat. We all went over to the community center where he handed out the cake. W.C. Handy Encounters the Blues. We now have a marker in Gulfport that brought in Jaimoe, a founding member from the Allman Brothers; he was in before Greg. I’ve been here a dozen times but not for a late night music event but it’s a magical place. I bring people here all the time. I went on a Rotary trip to Australia and the Hall is one of the pictures I showed.
