Dead cell stain

Does anyone know of a good stain for staining dead cells?  We're trying
Evan's Blue right now, but is there something more appropriate?
Also, what would be the definition of a dead cell?  It seems to me that
just because a cell cannot form a colony it might not be technically dead.
Thanks for your help,
