Bob Boze Bell

Bob Boze Bell’s work has appeared in Arizona Highways, Playboy, National Lampoon, the Arizona Republic and True West magazine. For ten years (2002-20012) he did a video version of True West Moments which ran on the Westerns Channel.

BBB can currently be seen on the series “Gunslingers” which runs on the American Heroes Channel. Triple B is also the President and executive editor of True West magazine, positions he has held since 1999.

He has written a dozen books on Old West characters like Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Wild Bill Hickok and a three-part series (so far) on Classic Gunfights which appear in True West. These popular, heavily illustrated books have sold over 90,000 copies, so far.

In 2014 he published a visual memoir of growing up on Route 66 called “The 66 Kid,” and he is currently working on a bio of Geronimo.

As for retirement, BBB says, “Work is only work if you’d rather be someplace else. And I’m exactly where I want to be.”

Born and raised in Kingman, Arizona in Mohave County General Hospital which is no longer there.

Lived up on Hilltop and played cowboys and baseball on the unpaved dusty streets, and rode bikes (as in bicycles) with Robert Allen Bell. And later rode bikes (as in motorcycles) with Bob Boze Bell.

Graduated from MCUHS, half of which is no longer there,  in 1965 and then graduated from NAU in Flagstaff with the pretentious degree of BFA in Commercial Art in 1969.

Spent 2 years as an Army guy then moved to Phoenix in  1972.  Worked as a Graphic Designer at an advertising and printing firm during which BBB and I published sporadically and unsuccessfully a magazine called Razz Revue, the Magazomic.

Started my Graphic Art Studio in 1986 and slaved once again but as a sole proprietor with a family to feed. A few years later BBB bought True West Magazine and asked me to be the Art Director. We have shared one hell of a past and an ongoing present, which includes The 66 Kids, based on growing up on the Mother Road.
