Princess Diana's little boy — the red-haired prince with the mischievous smile and his mother's wild streak — is about to become a father. The arrival any day now of Prince Harry's and American wife Meghan's first child will complete his public transformation into the admirable and modern family man who took his grandmother's crown last year as Britain's most popular royal. Confidence, a sense of humor and a fun-loving personality are some of the qualities the public sees in Harry, according to a U.K. polling company's rolling online surveys. Those old enough to remember his coming of age - watching him grow from a child swimming in palace trappings to a rebellious teen, from an army officer speaking up for rank-and-file soldiers to a ginger-bearded groom - can't help but take some pleasure in the expectant father's next milestone. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the titles conferred on the prince and his bride by Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, have tried to keep … [Read more...] about Prince Harry’s transformation: The kid’s all right

‘To have enough bread to eat seems almost a miracle’ On November 16, 1933, the U.S. established diplomatic relations with the USSR, and William C. Bullitt was the first ambassador, serving from 1933 to 1936. In April 1936, in his cable sent to the State Department, he described the new state in a dark and menacing way. William C. Bullitt Getty Images “The standard of living in the Soviet Union is extraordinarily low, lower perhaps than that of any European country, including the Balkans. Nevertheless, the townsfolk of the Soviet Union have today a sense of well-being. They have suffered so horribly since 1914 from war, revolution, civil war, and famine, that to have enough bread to eat, as they have today, seems almost a miracle.” At the same time, in 1933, Victor G.

Years later, he recalled: “The morning we arrived the … [Read more...] about Horrors of Stalin’s 1930s through the eyes of 3 Americans
Do you remember your first time? While some may have the envious bragging rights of catching Rock City's first ever headliner (the Undertones on December 11, 1980) or Nirvana's intimate set just before Smells Like Teen Spirit blew up in everyone's ear drums (December 3, 1991)... others perhaps lie in the realms of guilty pleasures. Bjorn Again (December 24, 1992) anyone? Whatever the gig, there was one unifying factor; it was the same sticky floor fans were dancing on from December 1980- January 2019. Now that the original floor has been ripped up and replaced after nearly 40 years we thought it was a good enough time as any to look back on all the bands who contributed to the spilt pints, high heel dents and general wear and tear that comes from thousands of epic nights dancing on those iconic floorboards. So beloved are those wooden slats in fact, that 9,000 people have already registered their interest in buying a piece of the Talbot Street venue's floor. There's still time to … [Read more...] about The definitive list of every band that has ever headlined Rock City
