Q: I've been waiting to ask you this for three years; the Beastie Boys name-checked you in a song. Was that cool?
A: It was. You know they invited me to come on "Saturday Night Live" when they were performing that song, but I was on my way to Japan, so I couldn't go.
The Beastie Boys then asked Sadaharu Oh to come on, but it turns out he was in Japan too. What are the odds?
