Jimmy Barnes revealed the last thing that fellow rock star Michael Hutchence told him before leading his own life in 1997.

The Scottish-Australian rocker told Andrew Denton Interview on Tuesday evening he regularly met with the INXS frontman a few days before his death.

& # 39; He looked very bad and I knew he had a hard time and it was one of those things where I called and said: & # 39; Do we have to come together? & # 39; & # 39; Jimmy said.

& # 39; He was busy and I was busy and we said & # 39; we'll meet next week & # 39; – and he didn't make it through the week. & # 39;

Thinking about what he could have done differently afterwards, Jimmy said he had walked to the hotel where Michael, 37, was staying in Sydney's Double Bay.

& # 39; I was literally living three miles from the hotel where he died and I could have gone there if I woke up, & # 39; said the 63 year old.

Jimmy previously admitted that he was trying to live his own life in a hotel in Auckland in 2012, and he said he was wondering if Michael changed his mind at the last minute.

& # 39; I just think it was a terrible accident – I got to the point that I had the rope around my neck and I didn't want to die. & # 39;

Elsewhere in his in-depth interview on the Channel Seven talk show, Jimmy directed his much-documented battle with drugs and alcohol.

Andrew played the rock star a clip from the Sydney Olympics in 2000, where he performed on stage – and the 63-year-old said he found it hard to look back because he was drunk at the time.

& # 39; I hadn't seen that for years because I didn't want it – I was so devastated when I did it that I thought it wouldn't help me. & # 39;

It comes after Jimmy said he unconsciously tried to kill himself with alcohol and drugs in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday.

& # 39; When I started drinking and taking drugs, I didn't drink to have fun, I drank to stop feeling. I took drugs to stop feeling. I drank like someone trying to die, & Jimmy said.
