Thumbpicks are bearable, every type of fingerpick I've used has been horrible. None gave me the control or versatility my fingertips do, Alaska piks are the worst by far.

Keith is a great player. Are you talking about the percussive stuff he's doing? That's just him hitting down on the guitar with the side of his hand on every beat.
