The following item appears in today's edition of the New York Post:David Lee Roth is a forgiving man. The original — and best — singer for VAN HALEN has agreed to co-present an award with his nemesis, Sammy Hagar, at the MTV Music Awards on Aug. 29, sources say, even after Hagar trashed Diamond Dave on PAGE SIX a few weeks back, calling him a "[bleep] hole," likening him to Liberace and making fun of his receding hairline. The feuding front men — both of whom were fired from the band by guitarist Eddie Van Halen — buried the hatchet for a joint summer tour, but were predictably at each other's throats within weeks. Roth and Hagar join host Jimmy Fallon and presenters James Gandolfini, Usher, Kirsten Dunst, Brittany Murphy, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Nelly, Avril Lavigne, Enrique Iglesias, Johnny Knoxville and Lil' Bow Wow. Performers include BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, PINK, THE HIVES, JA RULE, SHERYL CROW, ASHANTI, EMINEM, THE VINES, NAS, SHAKIRA and P. DIDDY. [end] In other news, VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen apparently joined LESLIE WEST & MOUNTAIN onstage at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California on Saturday, August 10th for a rendition of "Never In My Life".
