My wife and I haven't gigged in years, and don't jam as much as we would like to. She heard that an old friend I worked with back in the 70's was playing in about the only venue we have left. We really enjoyed ourselves, (even thought it was a "craft" beer place).
Jerry still has all his chops, (and more), and has put together a great group. Another friend I've know for over 40 years is the bass player, works hard all the time!
We have gone to listen to bands before that our past band mates kids have, and enjoy hearing them, even if their music isn't what we would buy. It was great to hear a band with music we would prefer!
