If memory serves me correctly, I don't believe that Frank Zappa used a lot of keys either.
Don't forget that keyboards were crazy expensive back in those days while guitars were dirt cheap. Sure nowadays any garage band can afford a decent Korg or Roland or Yamaha but back in those days a used DX7 or Hammond cost as much as a decent used car.
My first car was a 1972 Plymouth Cricket (Plymouth version of the Dodge Colt) that I bought in 1975 for $800 and managed to drive for another 5 years.
A DX7 (grey market or otherwise) was more than double that amount.
The original Polymoog had a Canadian price tag of $5000.00!!!!!!!!!!
I think you've made my point for me.
