Plaster Caster

Gene Simmons

Famed in pop culture, Cynthia "Plaster Caster" Albritton was a groupie with a fetish for preserving in eternal plaster the male appendage of many notable rock personalities. This "hobby" had resulted from her being both an art student with an assignment to make a cast of something solid, and a young woman interested in losing her virginity and exploring her sexuality. However, KISS, and Gene Simmons in particular, was never immortalized in this manner, with Cynthia recalling, "They wanted people to believe they were in my collection. No way! I had to tell them at the time and Gene [Simmons] just kind of scowled at me. They had no idea that I felt that way before they wrote the song, believe me" (Mary Wisniewski - Triplefastaction, Velocity, Issue 1.2). Gene wasn't concerned about taking an amusing concept and turning it into a song, but he might have been less than amused to not be on Cynthia's list. Gene also played rhythm guitar on the recording.
