Von LMO let very little be known about the actualities of his life. At times he has claimed to have been born in 1924 to Sicilian parents living in Brooklyn, other times he has said to be an extraterrestrial from the planet Strazar. As music influences, LMO has cited Bill Haley & His Comets and Jerry Lee Lewis as being particularly inspirational to him.
In 2007, Lmo was imprisoned for committing 2nd-degree robbery and sentenced to three and a half years. In 2010, Von Lmo was released from prison and is currently performing with former collaborator Otto von Ruggins in Avant Duel, a space rock outfit based in Brooklyn, New York. Avant Duel debuted with Beyond Human on March 10, 2012, marking LMO's first studio release in over fifteen years.
