Loads of people. I personally think variety is the spice of life and that anyone who plays in a band should have at least a basic knowledge of another instrument apart from their main one. I say go for it, your drums will forgive you, I'm sure ;)
I personally play the bass, guitar, drums, vocals and a very small amount of keyboards (I can play the Donnie Darko version of MadWorld and Numb by Linkin Park and that's about it lol). I like to think I divide my time equally with all of them but I would say my best instrument is probably the bass (that doesn't mean I'm good though! :p )
