What is the difference between a pianist and keyboardist? 

Essentially, they are similar except for the fact that the pianist can be linked to primarily performing on acoustic pianos and the keyboardist will perform on electronic pianos. More classical pianist will lean toward acoustic. However, that doesn't mean they will not play keyboard. The keyboard expands the available sounds such as synth strings, horns, and others.

What is a percussionist? Is that just drums? 

Bongos, congos, chimes, triangles, shakers and many more instruments. Sometimes in songs you will hear it in the background or, for example, the infamous SNL skit with Will Farrell - more cowbell - when they were recording: "Don't fear the reaper". That is a small part of the percussionist role, but undoubtedly a major part that gives the music it's needed features. For more info, click here to watch a video.
