The Morrissey online zine True to You has the singer's reaction to news that L.A. pub The Cat and Fiddle is closing in December:
The earth dies screaming
A large part of me dies at news that the pillowy bosom of the Cat And Fiddle is to close down on December 15th, making the universe all wrong. A beacon of light will soon be a headstone, and where will we now go to chew each other's fat? Yes, life is fragile and we all end up as worm chow, but the Cat And Fiddle is one of the Great Drinkers of The 20th Century, and is as stable and rooted a part of the Strip as number 77. We are all orphaned.

When in LA, Morrissey can regularly be found at The Cat and Fiddle. The photo above, of him with Russell Brand and Noah Gallagher, was posted on Brand's Twitter feed last year.
