Do any of the band past or present have any sons or daughters?

"No Mercy" suggests Dave has a daughter, JJ has one of each, Paul seems to have a son, there was mention that John Ellis had a new-born sometime during his time with the band, Baz has a daughter (inspiration for "Spectre of Love", I think), and wasn't there talk that Jet's daughter is the girl on the "Strange Little Girl" single sleeve? And maybe he has a son, too - wasn't there a story about him meeting Baz and commenting that he looked like he should be in the band?

They've been quite good at not talking much about non-band stuff, but they crop up from time to time. I haven't really got that much interest - there are things that are not band-related that interest me more about the band members - but I think I've read the above on here or in other general sources over the years, whether there are more around I have no idea.

Thanks for the feedback fella, strangely I have no interest either.
It was just a thought that came to mind, as I was looking at a photo of Dave Vanian on stage with his daughter in the wings.

Isn't JJ's son a drummer in a band?

Jets daughter is on the front of the strange little girl single sleeve. I met her when the boys were playing Sligo a few years back.

Didn't Baz say at the convention when he put his glasses on that his son said he looks like a U Boat captain.

I may be wrong but I recall reading that Jet had a son who helped with Strangled and that maybe he or another son sadly passed away. (I do hope I am wrong about the latter)
