Neil Young visits West Seattle's Pizzeria 22 and old friend Cary Kemp

Neil Young, whose tour brought him to Seattle paid a visit to his friend and former employee Cary Kemp owner of Ventidue 22 (Pizzeria 22) in the Admiral District. Cary shared this with the West Seattle Herald.

"I worked for Neil Young for 10 years as a road manager and retired when I had my children. My best friend Eric Johnson is his tour manager and we both grew up together in Ballard, I had a Ballard News Tribune paper route...Anyway, we all stay in touch and they come to the restaurant when they are in town.

The last tour 2 years ago Neil had to cancel but the rest of the band and crew came out to Pizzeria 22.

This time Neil and his family made the trip along with his current band, which features 2 of Willie Nelson's children.

We had a great evening and Neil was happy with all the menu choices available to him as a vegetarian."
