The late Cynthia “Plaster Caster” Albritton donated her most iconic mold piece, the penis of legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix, to Iceland’s Phallological Museum.
Plaster Caster, best known for casting the private parts of famous rock stars, passed away at age 74, leaving the status of the dozen molds of penises of cultural icons she had acquired throughout the years of her career. She got her big break when Hendrix agreed to her idea while he was on tour in Chicago in 1968. He became her first famous plaster cast of a rock star’s penis.
The Iceland’s Phallological Museum confirmed that Albritton left “one of a few casts of Jimi Hendrix” in their care at the Reykjavik location, which is home to over 200 “penises and penile parts” belong to almost every animal native to Iceland (both land and sea). They will unveil the display in early June at a closed event.
In addition to the mold of Hendrix’s penis, Albritton went on to cast other rock and pop stars, including Jon Langford of the Mekons, Eric Burdon of the Animals, Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks and Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra.
Albritton told Rock Scene in an interview a decade ago:
“Jimi Hendrix was coming to town. He was my first real rock star that dipped his dick and it was unbelievable. We were the groupies that got to the hotel first and we were the only groupies in Jimi Hendrix’s room. It wasn’t our very first cast. I had tried it on a few civilians first to be ready for Jimi.
“He’s my biggest. No, he’s not my biggest. There are ‘bigger-ish’ others. But I couldn’t say whether or not he’s my most exciting. Because they’re my sweet babies and I am their mama and I’m very democratic with all my babies. I don’t like to play favorites. I love them all. The experiences were equally exciting and weird and different from each other.”
