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."

The red and purple wall is not the yellow and green wall painted over. You can tell even by the photos posted here. The yellow wall is around the corner from the purple wall.
