As always, Stay metal!

Short version: I play drums. I write material on guitar ( I suck). I can sing. I prefer Originals, but I am willing to play covers in the right setting.
Long version:
Played drums since I was five. Got serious in high school and toured afterwards (van style) Taught myself to play guitar on long trips. I got tired of being hungry and broke and went to college. Found out what it was like to be really hungry and even more broke.(Still played in local original bands). Finished college and started my career gaining stability. Took an 18 year break and started a family. Finished my live room / studio so my son (who also plays) and I have space to finally play. Looking to get back in it and have fun again. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed playing out.
What I'm looking to do:
Original music out there today pretty much blows, we can do way better. Cover stuff is cool too, but it's gotta be different. Anyone can play the damn track. So I'm really up for anything, but it has to be the right setting and right people. I would definitely prefer to do originals, but I'm not opposed to playing in a cover band.

I'm not looking to be a rock star. I have a career, and a family and I don't need to be one. That being said, I am very serious and regional stuff is possible under the right conditions. If the right circumstances arise and something major should happen, great. But I don't *need* to "make it". I just want to get back out and play and have a good time making people enjoy some music.
