Q. How old is singer-composer Barry Manilow? Was he ever the house pianist in the famous Turkish baths where Bette Midler got her start? Was he ever Midler’s boyfriend?—Louise Stein, Detroit, Mich.

A. , 36, played piano in the wellpublicized Continental Baths in Manhattan, a reportedly gay bathhouse in the Ansonia Hotel where Bette Midler entertained as a singer. Midler and Manilow were never an item.
