After 22 years of marriage, Tom and Jane divorced in 1996. Following the divorce, Tom struggled with heroin addiction until 1999. He explained that the main cause was the emotional pain he experienced from the end of his marriage to Jane.
The musician later shared that he did not want to be enslaved to anything and consequently went to a treatment center, successfully coming out well before the tour for Echo in mid-1999.
After his divorce from Jane, Tom found love again and married Dana York on June 3, 2001.
