This may be a little tough, as it is no easy task to pin-point split seconds...

However, I wanted to know what you all thought the most dramatic moments in rock are/were... You know, a 3 or 4 second part in a song, usually a climax...

For me, there are a few:
1) Roger Daultry's scream after the drum solo in "Won't Get Fooled Again"
2) The end of "Can't Lose What You Never Had"
3) The buildup at the end of "Whippin' Post"
4) The crunching guitars at the end of the Doobie Brothers' "Without You"

You all?

The end of Don't Want You No More into It's Not My Cross TO Bear. I love it when Gregg growls. I wish he'd do that more when he plays the song live. YEAH, Yeah, YEah!!!

That's what I mean... Split seconds that just GRAB you like that!

What about the part at the end of "Free Bird", when the band comes out of that rumble and gets back into the groove... YEAH!

I'll go with the Mountain Jam moment.

But there's a part of Duane's solo in Dreams that always gives me chills. I don't know how to describe it, except to say it's the climax to the solo, right where the notes all disappear and the emotion shoots out.

In the middle of Dickey's solo on One Way Out when the band drops out for about 2 seconds and then simaltaneously kick back in. That is some tight, red hot blues. One of my favorite guitar solos of all time.

Duane's solo on Liz Reed from the Filmore East. Towards the end of the solo he slows it down and then starts hitting trills on the neck of the guitar leading pack into the climax. As he starts toward the climax Berry jumps in right behind me, I mean absolutely perfect timing, and just starts rumbling away bringing the whole band with him. This leads to the part where Duane is just screaming out a flurry of notes and bends that leads to the signature end of his solo. But the part where Berry drops the hammer is one of my favorite moments. No matter how many times I have heard I will very often back the cd up just to hear it again! Hell Yeah!

I will throw in that moment between the end of Black Magic Woman and the beginning of Gypsy Queen. I have seen Santana play this tune many times, and that kills me every time!

Rob: How about the false ending on Soul Sacrifice? YOWZA.

As for the ABB, I think the end of Gregg's organ solo is very dramatic. Those three rising chords and just that tiny pause before soloist number 2 -- especially when it was Duane -- were unbelievably intense and dramatic.

Is it a surprise that most replies are Allman based?

The verses & chorus of "Dreams". Simply sublime.

Robert Plant's vocal effects at some Zep songs - a singing genius.

Iggy Pop's howls in "T.V. Eye" & "No Fun". Manic brilliance.

Good thread... I'll say when Dickey's guitar kicks back in on Jessica and when Duane slides out sideways on Stand Back.

I love this thread. I'm at work, so I can't play any of these songs, but you guys are doing an excellent job of describing these moments. I have chills running up and down my spine!!

You know, you will ALL disagree, but the part in "Sweet Child O' Mine", where Slash just starts burning up the fretboard with that kick arse run in "E"... SWEET stuff...

Or, the part in "Ohio" when they come out of the chorus, and they hold on the "D" for a few seconds while Neil builds his solo up... Nice!

For some reason, the pause and then beginning build-up to the solo in Cream's "Badge" has always given me chills.

I'm gettin' chills just thinkin' about it here at work!

Frank, we spoke about "Machine Gun" a few weeks ago. There's a note Hendrix hits, where it sounds like a friggin' siren. Like an air raid or something. Too bad Jimi let Buddy Miles open his mouth on that song.

On Mahavishnu's Meeting of the Spirits, things get downright violent during McLaughlin's solo. The chemistry he had with Jerry Goodman was ridiculous.

On White Room, you can hear Ginger Baker pounding the cymbals & bass drums as the song fades out.

Get Yer Ya Ya's Out(the new reissue sounds AMAZING compared to other versions). Probably Mick Taylor's best moment on a Stones' album. Midnight Rider is absolutely fantastic.....especially after the harmonica solo.

Wish I had more tunes with me at work.

I'm going to 2nd JeffB's Jessica nomination as my personal favorite. That transition from the piano to Dickey's melodic and full-of-fun solo just shoots a tremor of happiness up my spine every time I hear it. I'm also quite fond of the way Jimmy Herring handled that particular segment during his run with the Brothers.

Similar to that Jessica piece, IMO, is when Robbie Krieger breaks into his solo after Morrison's "Yeah, Hooo!" in L.A. Woman.

Good call about Machine Gun, Finsky. Been listening to that one a lot for obvious reasons. I remember hearing Kirk Hammett of Metallica once describe that note as the greatest in the history of guitar. What a great friggin' song.

For that matter, on the Hendrix side, how about a moment from Woodstock? At the end of Voodoo Child Jimi sustains this massive feedback note which explodes into the opening notes of Star Spangled Banner, and the crowd ROARS! Gave me goosebumps just thinking about it. Maybe I'll put that on...

I gotta agree about Dickey starting in after the piano on Jessica. It's nirvana.

Not to "rock" the boat on this thread but the most dramatic split seconds in rock for me are as follows: (no particular order)

Chapman killing Lennon
Duanes accident
Berry's accident
Janis's demise
Jimi's demise
Brian Jones demise
Lowell George's demise

All of these took no more than a few seconds and to me are the most "dramatic few seconds" in rock history.

In the Who movie, "The Kids Are Alright," after the middle section of "Won't Get Fooled Again," when the lights are out, and as Daltrey screams "YEAAAAHHH!!!" the lights come back up, catching Townshend in flight, mid-leap, and he hits the ground, sliding knees and guitar first towards the camera...yeah, that's an electifying, exhilariting moment...

That and in the same movie, from Smothers Brothers TV show footage, when the explosives Moon's surreptitiously packed in his drum kit explode -- seconds later, Pete grabs a dazed Tommy Smothers' guitar -- Smothers was mocking the band before they played -- wrests it from his hands and smashes it to bits. THAT's rock and roll.
