“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,” Albritton revealed this to Rock Scene in an interview a decade ago.
“He’s my biggest. No, he’s not my biggest. There are ‘bigger-ish’ others,” she continued, “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.”
Also known as “Plaster Caster”, Cynthia Albritton is an American artist and sculptor famous for making casts of rock star penises. Among the penis casts he cast are Pete Shelley of Buzzcocks and Jello Biafra, the leader of the Dead Kennedys.
