The Plaster Caster Playlist

Cynthia Plaster Caster (real name Cynthia Albritton) in one of the few rock & roll groupies in history to capitalize on her sexual escapades with rock stars.

Her idea was simple, but brilliant. Get rock stars (or other celebrity types) to stick their fluffed peni into a waiting bucket filled with alginates. From this mold a perfect reproduction of the member could be manufactured for all the world to enjoy. In 2000, she also started casting female rockers.

Cynthia has been successful in capturing the manhood (or womanhood) of many rock legends including Jimi Hendrix, Jello Biafra, Peaches and members of MC5,  The Rascals, The Mothers of Invention, The Muffs, Pop Will Eat Itself and many others.

This playlist includes songs by artists (or band members) who have been cast by Cynthia. However, the first track is by a group that has never been cast. Although no one in the rock band Kiss ever let Cynthia preserve their love guns for antiquity, they did pen an ode to Ms. Plaster Caster with the aptly title song "Plaster Caster" off their 1977 release Love Gun.

In 2001, a documentary film, also titled Plaster Caster (trailer), was released that will appeal to anyone with an interest in groupies, art, rock & roll or genitalia.

The very first cast Cynthia did was that of the legendary Jimi Hendrix. When she got a chance to meet Jimi at a show in Chicago she asked if he would be interested.

His answer? "Yeah!". 

So she got ready with her dental mold material while her "assistant", Dianne P. Caster, paid lip service on Jimi in order to achieve the solid state needed for a good casting. The end result was one of the most famous (and largest) castings of Cynthia's career. 

If you're not lucky enough to see the collection of Cythia's work at a museum near you, check out the documentary, view the complete list of castees, and take this playlist for a spin. You'll never hear these songs in the same light again.
