Founded in 1909, Antelope Valley High School sits on the edge of the Mojave Desert in the northern part of Los Angeles county.

Captain Beefheart (Don van Vliet) and Frank Zappa both attended this high school, as did other members of the Magic Band including Rockette Morton (Mark Boston/Magic Band bassist) and Zoot Horn Rollo (Bill Harkleroad/Magic Band guitarist).

When Beefheart dropped out of school to drive his ailing father's bakery truck, Zappa would come over to his house to eat expired pineapple buns and listen to R&B records until early in the morning.
