Throughout the night, Donovan regularly returned to his nearby hotel room to snort lines of cocaine, then collapsed while Hutchence performed Van Morrison’s Gloria, accompanied by Depp on guitar.

In his 2007 memoir, Between The Lines: My Story Uncut, Donovan revealed how his efforts to keep up with the “big boys” that night nearly ended in tragedy.

“By midnight the party had hit the dance floor, but I knew I was about to go. My heart was pounding, my vision was blurring and I was getting disoriented. I tried to steady myself but my legs buckled under me and I fell to the ground,’ Donovan wrote.

“By midnight the party had hit the dance floor, but I knew I was about to go.  My heart was racing, my vision was blurring and I was getting disoriented.  I tried to steady myself but my legs bent under me and I fell to the ground,' Donovan (pictured in 1990) wrote in 2007.

‘A crowd had surrounded me and Michael [Hutchence] stood in front of me trying to empty my trouser pockets. “Do you have anything on you?” he kept asking me. I tried to speak but I couldn’t. “Wouldn’t it be cool if something was found on you by the doctors,” he whispered.

Donovan was carried out of the nightclub by paramedics on a stretcher and rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

He discharged after just three hours and returned to the party to apologize.

Donovan recalled telling Depp he was “really sorry” about the incident, to which Depp reportedly replied, “It’s cool, don’t worry.”
