Published May 22, 2022, 3:00 PM

Glenn Wheatley was a legendary Australian talent manager, promoter and musician himself in The Masters Apprentices.

Known for his reach across both music and media, he steered both John Farnham and Delta Goodrem to the top of Australian music.

In February 2022 he died from health complications caused by Covid.

Now his son, Tim Wheatley, has released a version of The Masters Apprentice’s hit, Because I Love You.

The cover has also been included with the new audio book of Glenn’s autobiography, Paper Paradise, read by Glenn himself.

Like Glenn, Tim has moved between Melbourne, London and Los Angeles, focused on music all the way.

As you’ll hear, the song has become more than a hit to the Wheatley’s, it’s very much in and of the family now.
