Outside the Tin Pan Alley Club, London. O'Neill photographed the band two years after it was formed in the year in which they released their first single Come On (1963). O'Neill was working for the Daily Sketch at the time, ' I'd just done a similar shoot with The Beatles and my editor's reaction to both was negative. He couldn't stand the way these bands looked. 'Go and shoot some pretty boys, ' he told me.'
