Around the same time that Chick Corea discovered Scientology, John McLaughlin moved from England to the United States.From: "Chick Corea" page in "Scientology Successes" section of "What is Scientology?" official church website (http://www.whatisscientology.org/html/part05/chp19/pg0311.html; viewed 8 November 2005):
The single greatest thing that studying Scientology has done for me is that it's helped me become freer. Freer to create life as I want to, without being thrown off from my objectives. One of the first simple successes was that I learned to handle and remove my own self-imposed barriers and restraints. Through further study, my ability to handle life around me also increased. This freedom has been hard won, but the rewards are great.
My study of Scientology has also enabled me to write more music. I have become quicker and am able to use all of the musical abilities that I already have. I gained a new understanding of what the proper importances are in the process of creating music.
Scientology has helped me to live better. Using the basic principles of Scientology has become a natural way of life for me. From Scientology I've gotten a freedom to learn whatever I want to learn in life and I'm gaining new abilities all the time.
