Regarding Coltrane, I came across this excerpt from a study on creativity and
Two subjects (5%), Art Pepper and John Coltrane, appeared to have anxiety
disorders. Art Pepper carried out obsessive–compulsive washing rituals and
had phobic anxiety regarding the sight of blood, hospital operations and
answering the telephone. John Coltrane exhibited obsessive–compulsive
features related to excessive practising, consumption of sweet foods,
dieting, searching for the perfect mouthpiece and constantly exploring
various religions. In relation to Coltrane, it is interesting to note that
obsessionality can have an adaptive function in creativity, and Storr (1972)
discusses the use of ritual to induce a suitable state of mind.
