He and Tom Cruise became two of the most famous Scientologists. He credited the religion's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, with being a main source of creative inspiration.

Absolute legend. Another one of Miles Davis' disciples.

Corea was already good before Scientology, but well, that's how it goes...

 

edit: I do want to get a hit with one if those jazz veterans. But Corea was still active and, I think, released a new album just last year.

Well, I guess then I need to watch Herbie Hancock even closer.

Wow that sucks.  Return To Forever were great and I was thinking about them and this goddamn website uniting soon.  So it begins.  Granted Corea was a decade older than the rest of RTF.
RIP

I could post anything from the first three RTF albums.  Incredible stuff.

Was it public knowledge prior to his death that he was suffering from dementia?

Pretty much everyone knew, yes.  We just didn’t talk about it much because he was a DL member’s uncle.
