Some dude named Mikko “Linde” Lindström — the guitarist for Bam Margera’s favorite band, Finnish “love metal” [Edit: Is that not the lamest fucking thing ever?] troupe HIM, is engaged to Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi’s super hot daughter Toni-Marie Iommi. The dude is finally doing something truly metal: Tony Iommi’s daughter. Alright!
The couple were engaged on August 13, according to Blabbermouth. Toni-Marie is the singer for Halo, a band I don’t know. She’s 27, and Mikko is 34. Lucky fuck. He has a seven year old daughter from a previous marriage. Oh, good for him.
Man, what a catch! Tony Iommi’s daughter, are you kidding me? I wonder what that was like — growing up with Tony as your dad? Well, she told some HIM online magazine recently that “people say to me, ‘Wow! You are so lucky to have Tony Iommi as your father.’ That always makes me laugh. Yes, I am lucky! What people don’t see [is that] my father is dad. To me, just like any other father, he sets rules, he worries about me when I’m out and about and he wants what’s best for me.”
I wonder if Tony was asked for his blessing, and whether he actually gave it. I think if Tony had heard a HIM record before being asked, he just may have said “No.”
