Tell me about learning Keyboard

What kind of keyboard should I get?

What is the learning curve compared to guitar?

What are the prospects of playing with local bar bands? Or will I be relegated to playing alone in my parent's basement?

Tks for you help.

I tried to play the keyboards but just wasn't any good. All I know is I can play in C major, you know, all the white keys.

I had a keyboard when I was like 8.

Played it twice.
