Studio Trilogy Engineer Rebounds After Serious Bicycle Accident

Pictured (L-R) at San Francisco's Studio Trilogy are recording engineer Willie Samuels and Enemy You members David Jones, Ken Yamazaki, Luke Ray, and Chris Matulich.

On the evening of Father's Day, June 15, Studio Trilogy recording engineer Willie Samuels was found unconscious on the side of the road, presumably after being hit by a car while on his bicycle. Determined to finish a project with the punk band Enemy You, Samuels was back in the studio for sessions two weeks later on June 29.

"It's really a mystery what happened," says Samuels. "A good samaritan found me unconscious and I have no recollection of the accident or the following few days." With a major concussion, his forearm broken in half and his left hand nearly separated from his arm, Samuels spent the next ten days in the hospital. After five surgical procedures, he refers to himself as "a man of steel."

Enemy You was formed in 1997, and Samuels first worked with the band in 2003 for the album "Stories Never Told" on the Red Scare label. The project was tracked and mixed at Samuels' Nu-Tone studio in Pittsburg, CA. The Enemy You lineup is David Jones, lead vocals, guitar; Ken Yamazaki, guitar; Luke Ray, drums; and Chris Matulich, bass guitar.

Ten years later, the label asked Enemy You to record a new song for their ten year anniversary compilation. "Initially we weren't sure if we were going to be able to pull it off," commented guitarist Ken Yamazaki. "It had been over ten years since we last played together, but we got together and started working on a demo at home."

"It was a blast working with this band in the past," said Samuels. "I was thrilled when they contacted me for their new project. I assured the band I'd be out of the hospital and ready to go because I've always prided myself in not canceling or rescheduling sessions," said Samuels. "I was released from the hospital on June 25 and we were in the studio on the 29th."

"I was a bit worried that Willie would be in pain or be uncomfortable after the serious injuries," said Yamazaki. "I was wrong. He was fast and didn't miss a beat. Studio Trilogy was beautiful and relaxing. The session went smoothly, Willie was awesome and all of us were happy."

Samuels acknowledges much help from Trilogy assistant engineer Noah Kileen and the studio's interns. "I soon realized it wasn't easy to setup or move microphones with one arm, but we had a cool time and it was a great reunion with the band."
