    Why would ...?

    Please clarify the following in red. It's from <<Leading the Life You Want>> by Stewart D. Friedman.

    Springsteen is the front man, the band leader, The Boss. It was a nickname he earned in his early performing days, as the one who collected money and distributed it to his bandmates. He didn't particularly like the nickname---why would an artist so aligned with the plight of the working man?---but it stuck.

    Is it saying "it isn't possible or natural that an artist who is sympathetic to the plight of the working man likes the nickname, The Boss"?

    Thank you.
