Default Re: Should drummers call themselves musicians?

Us drummers play more then one instrument. We play:

The Snare
Bass Drum
Floor Tom
Hi hat

Each one of these on their own could be considered an instrument, And many drummers use even more instruments in their set up.

Melody, Harmony and Rhythm are all part of music. Which instrument or musician has the key role of filling the Rhythm a lot of the time, The drummer. I would consider a drummer to be a musician.
