West Seattle sighting: Neil Young visits Pizzeria 22

The photo is from Pizzeria 22 proprietor Cary Kemp, who reports a celebrity customer on Saturday night:

It was an honor to host Neil Young, his family, band, and crew last night at Pizzeria 22. Looking forward to his performance tonight at the WaMu Theater.

ADDED SUNDAY NIGHT: We asked Cary if there was a particular reason the music legend chose his restaurant. His reply explains it: “I worked for Neil for 10 years as a tour manager.”
