AHS’ Caleb Peinado is graduating into the school of rock

Caleb Peinado is graduating from Aberdeen High School tomorrow. Unlike many of his classmates who have already picked their colleges or universities of choice, he has opted to enroll in the school of hard knocks — also known as the music industry.

Peinado — a prodigal blues/jazz/rock guitarist by many expert accounts — plans to launch what he hopes is a long and successful music career, and he got a head start at spring break, when he went to Southern California to begin recording his first album with a professional producer and mentor.
