Chuck Goff — Toby Keith’s Bassist, Friend — Killed

Goff Guitar

Carl “Chuck” Goff Jr. was Toby Keith’s good friend, bassist, band leader and a co-writer on two of Toby’s big songs. He died in Oklahoma on Wednesday (February 27). Goff was 54.

Wednesday at about 7:30 p.m. in Slaughterville, Ok., Goff was involved in a fatal car crash. The other driver was not injured, and the accident remains under investigation.

Goff helped Toby write the hits “Upstairs Downtown” and “You Ain’t Much Fun.” Goff also had his own signature bass through Dean Guitars.

“We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of our band member, Chuck Goff,” Keith said in a statement on his website. “He was a close friend for over 25 years, the band leader and bass player. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.”
