Default Re: Should drummers call themselves musicians?

Maybe I've taken the old joke too seriously, but I do see a distinction between operating in the realm of rhythm-only vs. operating in the realm of melody and harmony (which still includes rhythm). Copyright law also sees a distinction and music degrees aren't awarded to drummers who only know drums.

If drummer is worried about not being considered a musician, then drummer should consider learning another instrument.
My kit: It's not just good, it's good enough. Recent band.
