The following item comes to us courtesy of today's edition of the New York Post:
David Lee Roth says he was ready to deliver a beat-down to his fellow fired VAN HALEN frontman Sammy Hagar after Hagar trashed him on PAGE SIX a while back. Hagar, who was co-headlining a tour with Roth at the time, likened Diamond Dave to Liberace, called him an "a--hole" and made fun of his receding hairline. "I called him out in front of about 20 people after his famous PAGE SIX harangue," Roth said on Howard Stern's radio show. "He backed down. I guess he didn't want to hurt his strumming hand." Roth, who holds a black belt in karate, explained their backstage blow-ups by saying: "Two big dogs eating out of one big bowl." But he'd tour with Hagar again. "I'd sign up the day after tomorrow. I think the only one who didn't have fun on the tour was Sam."
