Cynthia Plaster Caster (real name Cynthia Albritton) is 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 women.

This playlist includes songs by artists (or band members) who have been cast by Cynthia. However, the first track in this playlist is by a group that has never had a member cast. Although the members of the rock band Kiss never let Cynthia preserve their love guns for antiquity, they did pen an ode to Ms. Plaster Caster and her work with the track “Plaster Caster” off of their 1977 release Love Gun.

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

The very first cast was that of the legendary Jimi Hendrix.

Cynthia got a chance to meet Jimi at a show in Chicago and she asked if he would be interested. His answer? ”Yeah!”. So, she got ready with her dental mold material while Cynthia's “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 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.
