Joe Perry

Vandalizes Wall

Dude Looks Like a Tagger

EXCLUSIVE

0403_joe_perry_graffiti_aerosmith_photos_launchAerosmith guitarist Joe Perry -- rock god, and hardcore scofflaw ... after bombing the band's logo on a building without the owner's consent ... all for a guerrilla marketing campaign.

TMZ has obtained photos and video taken very early Thursday morning of Perry tagging the wall of a production studio in downtown Los Angeles.

Our street art sources tell us Perry contacted a local graffiti artist named RISK to scout locations where they could plaster the Aerosmith logo and "Let Rock Rule" ... the name of their upcoming tour.

Problem is it caused a major issue for the owner of the building -- who tells TMZ they were slated to do a photo shoot on the wall Perry defaced.  

The owner says he's a big Aerosmith fan so he's not pressing charges -- but he had no idea about Perry's tagging mission ... and was forced to push back their client's shoot so they could paint over the wall ASAP (below).

Law enforcement sources tell us if Perry is caught in the act -- marketing or not -- he will be arrested for vandalism.

We reached out to Perry ... and in true rockstar fashion he said, "let the music do the talking."

Joe Perry needs to learn how to color within the lines. Obviously he didn't practice in elementary school. lol

That's quite an extensive piece of tagging. Hope he got done in time to make it to the 4:00PM senior discount special Denny's.

I suppose they installed a telephone pole and moved the building for the "after" shot?

C'mon TMZ, there are other sites that are putting out some REAL gossip and you're getting paid for these lame azz PR EXCLUSIVES.

Don't you see that no one cares about these craptastic stories. Surely you must notice no one is posting comments to most of these idiot pieces.

Good for Joe. Its a heckuva lot more productive than sitting in your bedroom with a bottle of Jack and a shotgun, shooting holes in the roof.
